Join us in Cincinnati, Ohio, for the 2024 DBIA Water/Wastewater Conference!

We are excited to bring you the 2024 Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference, April 15–17, in Cincinnati, OH, at the Duke Energy Convention Center. We need you to join us to help make this a great experience!



Each spring, our conference attracts Design-Build teams in the water/wastewater markets to address issues specific to their sectors. It’s a rare opportunity for Owners and industry to network, learn and share their unique sector Design-Build experiences.

Passage of historic federal infrastructure funding means Owners will be searching for qualified design-build teams to deliver innovative projects efficiently. With $55 billion invested in water infrastructure, including funds for drinking-water and wastewater-treatment projects, America’s design-build teams stand ready to, once again as we did in 2009, roll up our sleeves and get to work building the infrastructure needed to revitalize our economy, communities and nation.

Are your teams ready?

DBIA is committed to helping every member of a design-build team, Owners and industry alike, prepare for this historic opportunity to deliver project success in the water/wastewater sector. Our promise to you is to provide the nation’s best design-build education, networking and real-world strategies during our three days together in Cincinnati. The Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference is the industry’s “go-to” event each year, that more true today than ever before because we:

  • Increase Your Network: This event continues to grow each year, bringing in thousands of professionals and exhibitors who offer a wealth of real-world experience and project diversity.
  • Connect with Clients: More attendees mean more opportunities for business development. Owner attendance at DBIA conferences has increased significantly over the years as the need for qualified design-build teams grows.
  • Expand your Expertise: Design-Build for Water/Wastewater attendees have access to the nation’s only Design-Build Done Right® education plus the latest design-build innovations and trends offered by industry leaders and peers.
  • Earn Continuing Education Hours: Each conference provides attendees an opportunity to earn CEHs to put toward your DBIA Certification or renewal and apply toward your other licensures and credentials.

Join us April 17- 19, 2024, in Cincinnati, Ohio.

DBIA is proud to partner with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF) to co-host the 2024 Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference.
