The international trenchless technology community is lining up in force to support the ISTT’s 28th annual international No-Dig Conference and Exhibition to be held in Singapore, Nov. 8-10.

Headline sponsorship packages have been taken up by Vermeer and Pure International and key manufacturers from around the globe have already booked some 80 percent of the available exhibition space. In addition to National Pavilions from Germany and Singapore, China is participating with a significant presence alongside individual representation from United Kingdom, North America, Denmark, Italy, Australia, Japan, UAE and Malaysia.

The conference call for papers has drawn more than 50 offers from potential presenters and Prof Sam Ariaratnam, ISTT vice-chairman and head of the program committee commented: “We are delighted with the range of presentations that have been offered for the Singapore Conference. This is the first time that ISTT has presented a conference in this location and I am confident that the program will have a wide appeal, not only to delegates from the Asia Pacific region, but also from ISTT affiliated members around the world – many of whom are already anticipating group delegations.”

The closing date for papers is March 15 and the full Conference program is scheduled for publication in July.

International No-Dig 2010 is organized by ISTT, which has engaged the official support of several influential organizations, including Singapore’s National Water Agency, PUB. They are also joined by The Institution of Engineers Singapore, Institution of Civil Engineers, Tunnelling & Underground Construction Society (Singapore) and the Malaysian Water Association.

Singapore is a regional center of excellence for trenchless technology, established through many major microtunneling projects undertaken by PUB. The ongoing sewer rehabilitation program continues today, as PUB maintains some 3,400 km of public sewers and the current phase (2009 – 2014) will see the refurbishment of more than 1,000 km of this network.
