Westrade Group recently released details for the ISTT’s 36th Annual International No-Dig Conference and Exhibition, which will take place October 8-9, 2018, at the Cape Town Convention Centre (CTICC), South Africa. The conference will be hosted by the Southern African Society for Trenchless Technology.
The ISTT Trenchless International No-Dig Conference and Exhibition is a much-anticipated fixture in the event calendar which brings together engineers, planners, consultants, contractors and operators from all over the world who specialize in the installation and refurbishment of underground utilities. The conference program provides a mix of technical sessions, a lively and informative exhibition of the very latest products, services and technology and is a unique opportunity for the industry to come together and exchange ideas with like-minded professionals.
The two-day event will showcase newly-launched machinery and products and offer international suppliers an opportunity to market their products to visitors from South Africa and the surrounding regions. Among the displays will be the Horizontal Directional Drilling equipment (HDD), pipe rammers, pipe bursters, pipe inspection, CCTV surveying, pipes and lining materials, cleaning equipment and consulting services amongst many others.
Commenting on the event launch, Paul Harwood, Managing Director of Westrade Group, said: “We are thrilled to be announcing this highly-respected event to be hosted in Cape Town, an event which continues to be the only one of its kind on the African continent to focus on Trenchless Technology. South Africa has a huge program of new infrastructure installations planned in addition to the current and extensive renovation to its underground services and as such, was a logical choice of host. We are particularly excited that, for the first time, we will be offering day tours, overnight tours and private packages to Cape Town and its stunning environs as part of the program. This provides an additional and unique opportunity for sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to network in a more informal environment.”
