After a one-year hiatus, the Microtunneling Short Course is heading to a new location – Scottsdale Stadium in Scottsdale, Arizona, and a new time of the year – April 27-29, 2022.

The event brings together the international microtunneling community for a three-day Microtunneling Short Course, featuring top-notch technical presentations from leading global experts covering everything from planning, design and construction.

The Scottsdale Stadium is coined as “Old Town’s Premier Event Destination and Home to the Giants’ Spring Training”. The Microtunneling Short Course will be held in the Scottsdale Stadium’s Fieldhouse. The annual Banquet Dinner will take place April 29 in the Scottsdale Stadium’s Banyan Room, featuring stunning views of the baseball fields and mountains. During the banquet the Microtunneling Achievement Awards will be announced. The event is one-of-a-kind in our industry that professionals from all aspects of the business – contractors, engineers, manufacturers, suppliers, and owners – all sit down together for an evening of networking and having a good time.

The first night of the course, April 27, attendees are invited to attend a networking tabletop event at the Canopy by Hilton Scottsdale Old Town, the host hotel for the event. In conjunction with the Microtunneling Short Course, the North American Microtunneling Association (NAMA) will host its annual meeting April 28th at the Scottsdale Stadium from 5-7 p.m. in which the leading contractors discuss how they can better the industry.

Some of our early course sponsors include the Main Event Sponsor, United Underground Precast, as well as AECOM, Bradshaw Construction, Down2Earth, Hobas, JW Fowler Co., Kilduff Underground Engineering, Vadnais Trenchless Service, and VMT (USA) Technical Measurement Solutions, Inc.
