    The BIG BUILD Event is the 3rd Annual joint build-industry association event hosted by SMPS Southeast Louisiana. 

    This year the event brings together 10 A/E/C associations including ABC, ACEC, AGC, AIA, ASCE, CFMA, CMAA, IIDA, SMPS, and WTS for the New Orleans area's largest build industry networking event and a client panel. 

    Panelists will focus on procurement procedures, upcoming capital projects, and will be available for a Questions & Answer session.

    The event sold out the past two years so we've expanded registration to 200 attendees, but space will still be limited. Registration is available on a first come, first serve basis.
