Due to the ongoing challenges and complications resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the DBIA Florida Region made the difficult decision to reschedule our in-person conference. We will be hosting a virtual event for 2020 with tremendous opportunities for networking and capturing learning units.
September 30 to October 2, 2020
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
This is the only event in Florida created by and for the rapidly growing design-build industry. Design-build is the future and the 2020 Florida Design-Build Conference is the perfect place for newbies and pros alike to get the latest on important design-build trends and topics.
Meet decision makers and network with all members of project teams including contractors, architects, engineers, MEPs, attorneys and public and private Owners.
The format for the conference is unique and will allow for easy, face-to-face interactions just like in real life. For the full experience, attendees MUST use a webcam and microphone. Prior to the conference, we will conduct a series of Open Houses which will allow you to setup your event profile and troubleshoot any technical difficulties. Instructions will be provided two weeks prior to the start of the conference.
DOWNLOAD guidelines for accessing the event.
Sponsorships are available for firms interested in supporting Design-Build 2020. This conference continues to grow and provide value for your sponsorship dollar. Our attendees are mostly senior level employees from practitioner firms that comprise the design-build teams, plus directors and managers from Owner organizations. VIEW PDF

*DBIA defines Owners as individuals who work for organizations that control the design and construction processes, such as a government agency, academic institution, non-profit organization, private facility owner, etc. Owners decide what gets built, when it gets built and how it gets built, so their role in design-build is critical.
