Trenchless professionals from North America and beyond will head to the Chicago for the 2019 NASTT No-Dig Show taking place March 17-21 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.
Sponsored by the North American Society of Trenchless Technology (NASTT), this annual event draws trenchless professionals from around the globe to the largest conference and tradeshow in North America dedicated solely to the promotion of trenchless technology. Through exhibits, educational seminars and fun networking events, the No-Dig Show is a must-attend event for the trenchless professional.
Organizers are pleased to announce that there will be more than 190 exhibits – from North America and beyond – showcasing trenchless products and services for the repair, replacement and installation of underground utilities. Included in this lot are several first-time No-Dig Show exhibitors.
Following are some highlights as to what some of these exhibitors will showcase at the event.
Along with the jam-packed exhibit hall, the No-Dig technical paper program is also an important part of the show’s success and stature — and has become the heart and soul of the conference. NASTT’s 2019 No-Dig Show will feature six industry track sessions focused on both installation and rehabilitation that spans the three days of the show. Morning and afternoon sessions will give attendees a chance to attend several different sessions.
There will be more than 160 peer-reviewed technical papers to be presented, focusing on a diverse range of trenchless topics, including horizontal directional drilling, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP), microtunneling, inspection, case histories, asset management, pipe jacking and ramming, water and sewer rehabilitation, project planning, inspection and trenchless research.
Attendees can choose among what peer-reviewed paper presentations they want to see. The papers are evaluated based on relevance, usefulness and non-commercialism. The No-Dig Show papers are presented in a five-track schedule and are grouped mostly by subject matter so attendees can choose to attend five paper presentations at any given time.
Although the No-Dig show is the conduit to promote and advance the trenchless marketplace through education and exhibits, there’s also the social aspect of the conference that fosters networking opportunities for attendees, as well as just some fun and good times.
The conference gets under way with its annual Kick-off Breakfast on Monday, March 18. During this event, the formal presentation of the 2019 Trenchless Technology Person of the Year will be made to Mike Burkhard, part owner of Reline America. Also, the 2018 Trenchless Technology Projects of the Year in Rehabilitation and New Installation Awards will be presented. Entertainment for this event will be motivational speaker, Jody Urquhart, who is passionate about spreading the message of the importance of fun and meaningful work.
Also, on March 18, NASTT will hold its 18th annual Educational Fund Auction. This annual event is the perfect opportunity for attendees to mingle and relax, as well as bid on items for an excellent cause — the Educational Fund, which supports student chapters, target research, training modules and other student activities. This year NASTT has chosen a speakeasy theme so be sure you dress to impress.
On Tuesday, March 19, NASTT will host its annual Gala Awards Dinner. During this popular event, the trenchless community gathers for a night of fun, food and dancing to live entertainment. At this event NASTT will induct Maynard Akkerman, president, CEO and owner of Akkerman Inc; Chris Macey, Americas technical practice leader – condition assessment and rehabilitation at AECOM; and Robert “Bob” Westphal, senior advisor of operations at Michels Corp, into the NASTT Hall of Fame.
To close out the 2019 No-Dig event is the annual Closing Luncheon and Keynote Address on Wednesday, March 20. Here, attendees can enjoy lunch, entertainment and say good-bye to their fellow trenchless professionals before heading home.

Sure-Grip concrete protective liners made of HDPE, HDPE-el, PP, PVDF, and ECTFE are produced with state-of-the-art manufacturing technology. This system has been successfully applied worldwide for more than 25 years and serves as a long-term alternative to spray-applied concrete protection products. Sure-Grip prevents concrete corrosion and degradation, extends the lifetime of structures, and helps prevent exfiltration of material into the surrounding environment. It has unique anchoring systems that enable construction in areas of significant back pressure. Unlike spray-applied liners, which have to be reapplied regularly due to cracking or delamination, Sure-Grip is long-lasting. Sure-Grip is designed to avoid the residual cost often associated with spray-on liners, which require tank emptying and cleaning every few years for reapplication. Booth #726

Cretex LSS Internal Manhole Chimney Seal is a mechanical seal installed on the frame and grade ring sections of new or existing sanitary sewer manholes. These seals eliminate and prevent manhole frame-chimney inflow which has been proven to be a significant source of leakage in the collection system. During wet weather, clear water (inflow) enters manholes through deteriorated and broken frame-chimney joints in manholes. These flows can burden the collection system and may also lead to basement backups and the need to bypass pump. These seals are made up of a high-grade rubber sleeve and stainless-steel expansion bands, can accommodate differential movement and are easily removed and re-installed to allow for future manhole adjustments. The LSS Manhole Chimney Seal has a 50-year design life and is available in four widths. Booth #626

Stop cleaning clean pipe and focus collections resources with the SL-RAT (Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool). More than 230 utilities in the world use our award-winning acoustic technology to screen 6- to 18-in. gravity-fed sewers for blockages. Results show that 65 to 90 percent of pipes in the average utility do not need to be cleaned. This allows SL-RAT users to prioritize cleaning resources to areas that need it. With the capability to assess ~2 miles per day with 1/10th to 1/20th the cost of cleaning or visual inspection, acoustic inspection can be a great preliminary screening tool with substantial cost savings. A full-standard practice for using acoustic technology can be found in the ASTM Guide (F3220-17). Booth #411

Perma-Liner’s vertical connection pipe lining system offers a new way to approach and repair vertical pipelines in residential and commercial markets making the process much easier in less time. Where coating or brush casting needs multiple coats and comes with a significant dry time in between coats, the vertical connection lining system does not. The system cures in one hour using compact, electric steamer or vacuum pump. The lining system features uniform thickness throughout. There is zero thickness inconsistency with this method where one would see significant inconsistencies with coating. The host pipe does not need to be dry prior to installation, and it lessens the installation and cure time. Booth #307
Permalok is a proprietary interlocking casing pipe joint system that eliminates field butt welding.
