No-Dig Down Under

No-Dig Down Under will be held 3-6 October at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. There will be a diverse program with a range of speakers covering projects, technology, the latest developments, policy and more. Delegates are guaranteed to benefit from attending the conference.

Building on the successful and highly enjoyable event in Melbourne in 2009 and Trenchless Live 2010 held in Coffs Harbour, the great benefit of an event like this is the way it brings the entire trenchless industry together in one place. Owners and utilities, contractors and suppliers are able to network, co-operate for the future of the industry and exchange the latest information.

The trenchless industry’s leading companies have already come on board to sponsor the event. Their generous support is what makes this event possible, and helps to keep costs low.

There are still a few select sponsorship opportunities available. Contact Great Southern Press today if you are interested in taking part.

The exhibition will feature more than 50 individual companies from all areas of the industry including contractors and equipment providers in areas such as HDD, tunnelling, relining, pipe bursting, concrete and plastic pipe manufacturers and consultants.

A very limited number of exhibition booths are still available – contact Great Southern Press immediately to book your space.

Keynote Breakfast Session in the Exhibition Hall

An innovation in this year’s program is the free keynote breakfast session that will be held in the Exhibition Hall for all delegates and trade visitors.

The topic of this year’s keynote breakfast session will be the installation of the National Broadband Network. Come along and enjoy breakfast while learning about the opportunities for the trenchless industry.

Super Panel

Installation and Rehabilitation

In 2011 the conference will feature two Super Panels of trenchless experts to answer your questions.

The Installation Super Panel will be made up of trenchless experts in areas including tunnelling, HDD, asset management. The Rehabilitation Super Panel will feature experts in relining techniques, condition assessment and more.

The experts will engage the audience in a lively discussion of the relative benefits of different techniques offering solutions for the installation and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure.
