Portland, Oregon, Welcomes the NASTT No-Dig Show
For the first time, the NASTT No-Dig Show — the largest gathering of trenchless professionals — is heading to the Northwest, specifically Portland, Oregon. This annual convergence of the worldwide trenchless community takes place April 30-May 4 at the Oregon Convention Center, with a full slate of educational, exhibiting and networking opportunities for those who attend.
2022 brought a return of the full-scale No-Dig show, after the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. The 2023 Show continues and expands on that with a few changes to the traditional trenchless tradeshow, giving it an updated and new dynamic look for attendees.
The 2023 conference and exhibition is a high-quality combination of education and innovation. This year’s show features more than 140 exhibiting companies on the tradeshow floor, giving attendees ample opportunities to check out the latest technologies and products the industry has to offer.
The conference portion features more than 130 peer-reviewed technical papers, plus roundtable discussions via 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. The technical presentations are always a feature of the No-Dig Show and this year’s presentations focus 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.
Download the mobile app and have access to the current Session Schedule during the show. Also, check out the 2022 Trenchless Technology Projects of the Year winners’ session at 3:45 p.m. on Monday, May 1; Moderated by Trenchless Technology editors Sharon M. Bueno and Mike Kezdi, the architects of the winning projects will discuss the challenges they faced and how they solved them, as well as field questions from those in the session.
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.
Start the week off with the Kick-off Breakfast, sponsored by Trenchless Technology and Jacobs, on Monday, May 1, where attendees will be welcomed to the No-Dig Show by NASTT chair Joe Lane. Trenchless Technology will also formally honor its 2022 Trenchless Technology Projects of the Year New Installation and Rehabilitation winners and Dr. John Matthews, the 2023 Trenchless Technology Person of the Year. NASTT will spotlight sponsors, NASTT board members, Municipal Scholarship recipients and NASTT volunteers.
At the conclusion of the May 1 technical sessions, join fellow attendees in the Portland Ballroom for the NASTT 22nd Annual Educational Fund Auction from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The auction is sponsored by Bennett Trenchless Engineers, Interplastic Corp. and Xylem. Since 2002, NASTT has raised more than $1.2 million and used those funds in support of our many educational initiatives. NASTT is able to provide targeted trenchless training courses to the industry, publish trenchless resources manuals and sponsor university students’ attendance at NASTT’s No-Dig Shows, as well as award scholarships.
New for 2023 is Casino Royale on Tuesday, May 2, from 6 to 10 p.m. in the Portland Ballroom. The casino night party replaces the traditional, formal Gala Dinner. The event, sponsored by AOC, will still honor the NASTT 2023 Hall of Fame induction class, as well as the NASTT Chair Award recipient. The 2023 class features Steven R. Kramer, P.E., FASCE, senior vice president-tunnel at COWI and Kevin Miller, senior advisor at Miller Pipeline Corp. The awards will be followed by a champagne toast and then the event pivots to the casino tables for gaming. Throughout the evening enjoy various food stations, cocktails and networking with your trenchless community. At the end of the evening, attendees can turn in their winnings for a chance to take home raffle prizes. Casino Royale is a ticketed event and tickets can be purchased during registration. Festive cocktail attire is encouraged.
Attendees are invited to close out the NASTT 2023 No-Dig Show at the Closing Luncheon in the exhibit hall from 12 to 1 p.m. on May 3 in Exhibit Hall D.

EnviroCure is a polyester felt liner with multi-layer, polyamide coating containing conforming to ASTM F1216 and ASTM F1743. To accommodate the requirement for liners of varying thicknesses, multiple layers of needle-punched felt are employed.
