Delivering Owner Success

Targeted Owner Design-Build Education

Design-build is only as successful as the Owners who implement it. That’s why the Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference is designed with both public and private Owners’ needs in mind.

From our popular Owners-Only Forum — allowing frank conversations among peers — to sessions on Owner Advisors, best practices and more, this event is designed to help Owners prepare for the historic opportunities 2022 brings.

Owners can apply to defray attending costs by requesting hotel assistance or a travel stipend (all scholarships include complimentary registration) through our owner scholarship program. Limited scholarships are available.

Avoid Email Scammers

Don’t Be Fooled!

Unfortunately, emails are circulating that offer to sell attendee lists for many of DBIA’s conferences. These emails are sent by scammers impersonating DBIA. DBIA does not sell its exhibitor or attendee lists, and no third-party is authorized to distribute or sell any lists related to our events.

Statements claiming to offer our attendee lists are fraudulent. Conference exhibitors will only obtain lists directly from DBIA Conferences staff, based on their contracted language.

If you receive emails that claim to sell DBIA conference attendee lists, do not engage with the sender and mark the message as junk/spam immediately.
