Become an Event Volunteer!

Are you a full-time student looking to get your name out in the AEC Industry? We would love to welcome you as a volunteer for our events!

What is it?

Our Flagship event, BILT is a 3-day conference that brings together global business leaders, thought leaders, innovators and implementers in the AEC industry to learn from each other through interactive classes, discussions, panel sessions and hands-on labs. It is here that you will meet and learn the secrets of the best in the business with speakers and attendees from the top 100 Architecture, Engineering and Construction Firms globally.

By volunteering, you will get the opportunity to experience the event without having to pay to attend by simply giving us a hand here or there.

What will you do?

As a volunteer your main role will be to assist with conference set up prior to the conference as well as with each of the session rooms during the conference. This will include scanning delegate name badges on entry and assisting with speaker needs. You will need to be available 9am – 5pm each conference day.

For volunteers we set up a briefing, have a rotating roster and provide you with a volunteer t-shirt to make you feel part of the community.

What are the benefits?

In return volunteers will be provided with:

  • Complimentary conference registration including attendance to your chosen sessions (once duties are completed).
  • Complimentary access to our exhibition hall where you can check out the latest gadgets and products in the industry.
  • Complimentary morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
  • Complimentary social function tickets (3)

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.
