The 31st ISTT No-Dig will take place in Sydney, Australia, from Sept. 1-4. 2013. There have been two previous international No-Digs in Australia, remembered as being among the best.

Sydney is an iconic city that boasts incredible views, plenty to see and do and friendly people. It’s a great place to come and visit; and an even better place to come and experience Australasia’s trenchless boom.
