On 8-11 March 2022, the No-Dig Down Under Conference and Exhibition is coming to the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Sydney.
The convention will include speakers on all aspects of pipeline rehabilitation and repair, as well as installation and management of other underground utilities.
Highlights of the technical program include presentations from some of the most influential organisations across Australia.
Speakers include Adam Shayler of Bamser, who will talk about a real-life perspective on how geotechnical conditions can vary and discussion of risk management strategies to deal with this.
David Rogers of Nuflow Technologies will discuss advancements in structural cured in place pipe materials, liner design and manufacture.
Mark Bell of IDS GeoRadar will discuss the advances in Array GPR Solutions for 3D underground utility mapping.
And those are just to name a few.
No-Dig Down Under brings together speakers around Australasia and the globe to present papers covering case studies, new and emerging technologies, challenging projects, and environments, industry skills and training, risk management and much more.
The event will offer a full range of professional development opportunities, with an extensive conference program preceded by technical courses across a range of technologies.
Why should you attend No-Dig Down Under 2022?
The world-class conference program will show you how leading utilities are using no-dig methods.
Asset owners play a vital role in the application of trenchless technology, which is why the conference program largely consists of Australia and New Zealand’s leading utilities, operators, and municipalities, including Gold Coast City Council, Yarra Valley Water, APA Group, and Dial Before You Dig.
The conference program also includes presentations on research and education into trenchless technologies.
See the latest trenchless technology at the exhibition
The exhibition will feature the world’s leading suppliers, manufacturers, and service providers of the latest trenchless solutions for the installation, rehabilitation, and location of underground infrastructure assets.
Many of the exhibition stalls will be presenting practical demonstrations of their equipment, which is an important opportunity to see the company’s products in action.
In 2019, more than 1,500 leaders and decision-makers passed through the exhibition, including delegates and trade visitors, so you know that what’s on exhibit is worth a visit!
Get networking at the three social functions
No-Dig Down Under will feature three social functions, providing networking opportunities in a variety of different atmospheres.
On the evening of Tuesday 8 March, the exhibition will officially open with a ceremony at the ICC, sponsored by Herrenknecht.
The opening is an opportunity to get a first glimpse of the exhibition hall and speak to exhibitors about their products and services before the general public the following morning.
The Networking Reception on Wednesday 9 March, sponsored by Vermeer, is a chance for delegates to relax and unwind after a few busy days. This years’ event will take place on board a Captain Cook Cruise departing from King Street Wharf – easy walking distance from ICC Sydney. Sail into the evening with this cruise around Sydney Harbour.
The final evenings boasts the ASTT Gala Dinner and Awards Evening. This formal event – sponsored by Bothar Boring & Tunnelling – celebrates the Australasian trenchless industry’s achievements from the past two years.
Full conference registrations include access to the function, otherwise, tickets can be purchased separately on the No-Dig Down Under website.
Increase your knowledge of trenchless technology by attending a training course
In 2022, No-Dig Down Under will feature three training courses covering Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), Sewer Laterals and New Installations. The training courses will be presented by international leaders of their respective fields.
Originally developed by the North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT), the ASTT has licensed the training courses and adapted the material for Australasian audiences. The courses are considered the global industry standard for trenchless technology education.
Registrations for No-Dig Down Under are now open, and the ASTT also has 10 utility and council scholarships available for attendance at No-Dig Down Under 2022. The scholarships allow key members of Australasian utilities and councils to attend the event with reduced costs and aims to bring more employees from these organisations to the event, thereby increasing the knowledge of trenchless technology.
