About Us

Our Objective

We facilitate knowledge expansion, interaction, business optimization, and education in the management of environmental practices by promoting sustainability in building design, construction, and operation.


Who We Are

The Developers & Builders Alliance is a networking organization that unifies top decision-makers in development, construction, and related businesses by contributing to the exchange of information and trends that affect their industries.

Our Evolution

Through our cooperative efforts we were able to further extend our reach to decision makers, business leaders and government officials from around the world to promote our common interests. In a short span of time, we became one of the largest development and construction organizations uniting top universal investors, developers, government authorities, contractors, and all related industry professionals.


Our Distinctiveness

Leadership and Veracity: We do more than just embrace and unify business partners. We build with a strong level of integrity, commitment, and determination.

Our industry involvement has given us an innate understanding of the workings of development, construction, and all things business. In 2012, the members of the Developers & Builders Alliance collectively reflected projects that spanned approximately:

Billion square feet of premium property worldwide.
Funds expenditures from these developments exceed the trillion mark
Participating members

It's about our outlook:

towards business nothing can stop

the power of determination.


Our History

The Developers & Builders Alliance (DBA) was established in 2003, under the name Florida Builders Association, with the support of industry leaders Gil and Michael Dezer (of Trump Dezer Development), Donald J. Trump (of Trump Organization), Jorge M. Perez (of The Related Group of Florida), and Veronica R. Mendieta (of VM Group).

The new millennium brought unprecedented opportunities, with freehold markets opening up worldwide. In January 2006, the organization's focus shifted to the creation of a global platform that would integrate resources, products, and services, as well as the development of programs that could support the exchange of information and expertise of its international affiliates. Through our cooperative efforts, we were able to further extend our reach to decision-makers, business leaders, and government officials from around the world to promote our common interests.

In November 2008, we became one of the largest international development and construction organizations, paving the way for us to launch the Professional Vendor-Partner Rewards Program. This innovative program was a unique resource exchange system connecting DBA members to accredited professional partners.

In 2010, with consideration to the slow market in the USA due to the recession, DBA sparked relationships with organizations across the board, acting as a media partner by promoting industry events with the intention of keeping the DBA name in the forefront and building trust in our brand during this transition period. We have worked with organizations as varied as Cityscape, SIMA, International Exhibition Services, Messe Frankfurt, World Cities Summit, EIRE, ULI, Terrapinn, USBGC, FIABCI, IMN’s, Marcusevans, Experia Events, IBC Brazil, Informa Group Latin America, IIRME, Future Cities Asia, Green Pearl Events, and Infrastructure Arabia. We have also been involved with IPI Show, World Eco Construct, Asian Hedge Fund Awards, Saudi TRANSTEC, IPIS, KAAL and REIW, 3rd International Exhibition for Infrastructure and Industrial Projects, Outdoor Design and Build Show, and Exhibitions Indian Group. Some of our more recent involvements include The Big 5 Saudi, Elevators & Access Control Show, MCI Middle East Concrete, Smart Cities Asia and India, Ecocity World Summit, REDIM Dubai, Asian Utility and Intersolar, Middle East Concrete & PMV Live, Middle East Transport Infrastructure & Logistics Expo, Interior Design Oman, and Municipalika Smart & Sustainable Cities.

Late in 2012, the DBA aligned its objectives with the current global trend of green sustainability by teaming up with CERTIFIED GREEN PARTNERS. Through this partnership, we are able to offer all trade participants strategies to position themselves as a powerful certified green company, taking their organizations to the next level.

Today, we continue to pursue our objective of business optimization through the implementation of networking, social media exposure, time maximization, and expenditure reduction.

It's not just who you know,

it's also who's in your team.
