 Thanks for coming to Charlotte!

On behalf of DBIA, thank you for joining us at the 2016 Design-Build in Transportation Conference! Attendance broke all records, surpassing 1,100 attendees for the first time.
We enjoyed seeing so many familiar faces and so many first-time attendees. It was inspiring to watch so many respected professionals share experiences and knowledge for the greater good of the transportation industry. 

This year’s conference included more than 20 educational programs and networking events – all geared toward how to save time, control costs and increase the quality of our nation’s transportation projects though Design-Build Done Right™. Best Practices was a constant theme throughout the conference, with several sessions highlighting the Transportation Committee’s work on a transportation sector specific guide and white papers.
We hope to see you next year when we head to Minneapolis, Minnesota on March 27-29, 2017.
