Gabriel Vargas, Los Angeles Department of Water & Power

“DBIA lined up great speakers from Owners, builders, designers, researchers, and lawyers. Every participant heard all sides of the story, lessons learned, and best practices throughout. The exhibit hall and access to some of the industry experts were invaluable.”

Mike Konicke, San Elijo Joint Powers Authority

“It was a great opportunity to connect with other owners with varying degrees of experience with design-build delivery. I also made some good contacts with D/B contractors for future potential partnering opportunities.”

Brett Balley, Denver Water

“A great conference. Very informative. I was able to learn more about design-build best practices and connect with other Owners.”

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.
