In light of the projected track of Hurricane Ian, the DBIA Florida Region‘s Annual Conference (Sept. 28-30) will not be taking place this week. Given the statewide impacts of Hurricane Ian, we feel this is the best course of action. Please be patient with us as we‘re still evaluating options to reschedule and will notify everyone once a decision has been made.
Any reservations that are held at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress will be automatically canceled by the hotel. If you are evacuating and wish to keep your reservation, you will need to call the hotel and notify them that you plan to do so. If you made a reservation that is not within the block, you will need to contact the hotel directly to cancel.
Please stay safe!

This rate is good for three days before and after the conference dates based on availability. Please make your reservation early to ensure you stay at the event hotel.

Owners are a important member of the design-build team. A well-informed Owner can set the stage for a successful project from procurement through execution. There is a mental shift with design-build projects.
If funding is an issue, we encourage Owners to apply for scholarships to help offset registration fees and hotel costs. Scholarships will be issued as funds allow. Please apply to the Louis J. Martinez Owner Scholarship Program.
