In September 2013, the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre will play host to international trenchless event, No Dig-Down Under. The whole of industry event will provide over 1,000 delegates from around the world with insights into innovative and new trenchless techniques. This forum will provide the tools necessary to position trenchless professionals at the forefront of the industry.
No-Dig Down Under 2013 is the 31st international conference and exhibition of the International Society for Trenchless Technology (ISTT). The ISTT, which has 28 Affiliated Societies across the globe, was established to advance the science and practice of trenchless technology for the public benefit and to promote education, training, study and research in this field.
The ISTT hosts its annual event with one of its affiliated societies every year. This year, the Australasian Society for Trenchless Technology (ASTT), in conjunction with the ISTT, will host the international No-Dig Event from 1-4 September 2013.
The ISTT’s presence at a No-Dig Conference is an honour to the host country and adds considerable prestige to the ASTT event, drawing hundreds of international delegates into attendance.
The technical program includes speakers from around the globe who will be presenting papers covering case studies, new and emerging technologies, challenging projects and environments, industry skills and training, risk management and more. Delegates will learn how to enhance their products and services by learning about the role trenchless technology plays in reducing carbon emissions, reducing occupational health and safety risks, and protecting the environment and existing infrastructure, among many other benefits.
With over 70 per cent of the three-streamed technical program comprised of international speakers, delegates will have the opportunity to hear from speakers from 18 different countries, covering case studies such as water mains rehabilitation in the United Kingdom, pipeline rehabilitation in Europe and sewer main condition assessment in the United States, as well as plenty of case studies from Australasia.*
The program will be supported by an Exhibition Hall extending over 5,000 square metres. The Exhibition Hall will feature booths of varying sizes and international pavilions, where contractors and suppliers from around the world can showcase their services and equipment of all shapes and sizes.
Delegates will also be offered an extensive range of social and networking opportunities, including the Exhibition Opening, Sydney Harbour Cruise, and Gala Dinner and Awards Evening. This prestigious occasion will be the trenchless industry’s main event for the year, and the glamorous evening will include presentation of the 2013 ASTT and ISTT awards, which recognise outstanding people and projects in the industry.
