Registration opens for one of world’s largest trenchless events

Taking place in Melbourne in September, the event will once again feature training courses presented by international experts, a world class conference program and the largest trade exhibition in the event’s almost 20-year history.

With less than 6 months until the start of No-Dig Down Under 2019, registrations have opened for the event, taking place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 10 to 13 September. The event is made possible by the generous support of Platinum Sponsor National Environmental Equipment (NATEE); Gold Sponsor Vermeer; Silver Sponsors KRE Engineering, Pezzimenti Trenchless and Vivax Metrotech; and Bronze Sponsors Interflow and Smart Lock. No-Dig Down Under 2019 is proud to raise funds and awareness for the event’s Charity Partner WaterAid.

Early bird savings

Attendees that register before 12 July 2019 will take advantage of a discount of more than 15 per cent on the price of full conference registration.

ASTT members who register during the early bird period will secure their position at the event for AU$1,210, while non-ASTT members will be charged AU$1,430.

Early bird discounts do not apply to speaker registrations, which sit at a flat rate of AU$1,000, or one-day conference registrations, which cost AU$900. Conference, speaker and one-day registrations include access to catering as well as social functions. Entry to No-Dig Down Under’s exhibition hall is free; however, registration does not include catering or access to any of the social functions.

Add ons

A number of additional options are available during the registration process, including access to the ASTT Training Courses, which will take place before the start of the conference program. ASTT members can include course registration for AU$490, while non-members can do the same for AU$590.

Access to No-Dig Down Under’s social functions – including the prestigious ASTT Gala Dinner and Awards Evening, sponsored by NATEE – can also be added separately. Tickets to the Exhibition Opening and the Networking Reception, both sponsored by Vermeer, are AU$70 and AU$150, respectively.

Single tickets to the Gala Dinner can be purchased for AU$190. Alternatively, a table of 10 for the dinner can be purchased for AU$1,700.

Attendee profile

A survey conducted of the more than 1,200 attendees at No-Dig Down Under 2017 concluded that more than 73 per cent attended specifically to network and see new products and services. Almost 90 per cent of attendees had the authority or influence to purchase for their company, while 75 per cent intended to make a purchase at the event or in the near future. According to the results of the survey, more than 86 per cent of exhibitors gained a number of business leads from the event.

Unparalleled access

Sponsoring and exhibiting at No-Dig Down Under 2019 will give companies unparalleled access to decision makers in the trenchless industry, positioning brands in front of installation and rehabilitation contractors with real purchasing power, as well as key decision makers and project specifiers from councils and major water, telecommunications and energy utilities.
