2013 International No-Dig – Sydney

The ASTT put forward a very comprehensive bid to host the 2013 International No-Dig in Sydney at the ISTT Board meeting held in conjunction with the recently held Singapore International No-Dig.

It gives me great pleasure to advise you all that after considerable debate; we managed to put the Chinese opposition out of the race and were given the go-ahead by the ISTT.

A special thanks goes out once again to Chris Bland and his team, and Business Events Sydney for the work they did on the preparation of the bid documentation, which was first class, and for which I am sure assisted enormously in the ISTT Board making their final decision.

The event will be held at Sydney’s Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour and will run over 1-4 September, 2013.

Trenchless Live 2010 – Coffs Harbour

This inaugural event was a resounding success and I would like to thank all those that either displayed equipment, had a booth, were involved on the panel discussions and were a part of Great Southern Press’ organising team.

The program and the weather delivered precisely what it set out to do.

This style of event will now be held biannually also.

Merry Christmas

In closing, may I also take this opportunity to offer all of you on behalf of ASTT, a very Merry Christmas and let’s hope that next year will be both financial and rewarding for all of you.
