The NO-DIG ROAD SHOW 2009/2010 program came to a successful close just before the Easter break, with the final two events held in Dublin and Belfast. Bristol and Wakefield were featured in the earlier part of the program, with the Wakefield event sponsored by Yorkshire Water.
The 2009/10 program featured the greatest number of exhibitors in its history, with 31 companies participating – the majority exhibiting at all four events. The combined visitor and delegate attendance exceeded 500.
The seminar programs, compiled by UKSTT, featured a range of technology specific presentations, accompanied by local case studies — including a comprehensive presentation at the Irish events on the multi million pound Belfast sewers project.
“Despite the difficult economic climate, the industry has demonstrated its optimism for the future of trenchless technology by supporting these events, comments UKSTT chairman, Colin Tickle. “The seminars represent excellent value for those wanting to learn what’s new in the market and we are delighted that this year’s program attracted some of the highest attendances in the ROAD SHOW history.”
The first ROAD SHOW program was held in 1988 and continues biennially, approximately midway between the NO-DIG LIVE national exhibition, also held every two years. Organized by Westrade Group in conjunction with UKSTT, the objective is to keep the industry abreast of trenchless technology developments on a regional basis. The original formula, presenting a one day seminar and exhibition continues to be attractive to industry personnel who are able to attend a low cost and high value at a local venue.
