  See you in Washington, DC in 2014!


With design-build project delivery representing nearly 40 percent of total market share in the United States, there has never been a better time to attend the DBIA/SAME Federal Project Delivery Symposium this August 19-21, 2014 at the Omni Shoreham.  Be a part of the 600 industry leaders and more than 100 government agency personnel including GSA, NASA, National Guard, Air Force, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Dept. of Energy, Dept. of Veterans Affairs, and Homeland Security at this year’s Symposium.

We are excited to present the biggest 2014 Federal Project Delivery Symposium yet with our partner SAME to reflect the growing commitment to design-build project delivery on the Federal level. DBIA and SAME are dedicated to providing federal agencies and design and construction professionals with Design-Build Done Right best practices to achieve the best value for U.S. citizens and taxpayers. 
Why Join Us?
The 2014 Federal Project Delivery Symposium is the only/largest/premier gathering to learn, engage and network with leading design-build owners and thought leaders. Benefit from education sessions that highlight the spectrum of federal project types, from courthouses to barracks and highlight the use of design-build to tackle a variety of challenges from cyber security to energy conservation. Stay cutting edge by gaining access to design-build thought leaders in sessions aimed at explaining advances in the contracting methodology and the latest in design-build best practices. And, for the first time, a dedicated Executive Forum track will feature high-level agency personnel in an intimate round table setting.
