Gathering under the Gold Coast sun

Bringing together the Southern Hemisphere’s largest trenchless industry under the roof of the Gold Coast Exhibition and Convention Centre from 8-11 September, No-Dig Down Under will showcase the latest products, developments and innovations within the ever-evolving underground infrastructure industries.

Professionals from the utilities sector, local council and governments, as well as education and training providers, will benefit from hearing about a wide range of methodologies for installing, repairing and monitoring assets. Attendees will be shown how trenchless methods can reduce project costs, minimise disruption and construction impacts, maintain stringent environmental standards and enhance asset management programs and networks.

Take the risk and uncertainty out of projects by speaking to the owners and developers of the most reputed and trusted technologies from Australasia and around the globe.
