No-Dig Live 2016
Following the success of NO-DIG LIVE held in September 2014, the 13th biennial trenchless technology exhibition, outdoor demonstrations and seminars will return.
The recent event featured more than 100 companies, both from home and overseas, presenting an impressive range of products and services for undertaking projects using trenchless technology. The facilities at the new venue brought the outdoor demonstration area much closer to the indoor exhibits – a feature verbally appreciated by exhibitors and visitors alike. The warm autumn sunshine was a contributing factor to this success, as the huge cargo doors were left fully open during the show, ensuring a free flow of visitor traffic between the two areas. Visitors to thie show were offered a wide ranging programme of educational opportunities.
A visit to the exhibition and demonstration area is an unrivalled forum to see the latest innovations, to see equipment in a live working environment and to discuss how products can enhance the visitor’s business. The programme of Breakfast Briefings, organised by UKSTT and PIG were also on the agenda and once again proved to be a popular feature, with more than 250 attendees arriving early to take part in the daily topics. UKSTT also took the opportunity to launch its new Trenchless Technology Masterclass series which is due to be rolled out in 2015. The ‘Mini’ Masterclasses held at NO-DIG LIVE gave delegates an opportunity to hear detailed presentations on a range of subjects.
Feedback from the 150 attendees proved that there is a demand for more in depth educational programmes which will be delivered by UKSTT through its future programme. Adding value to the visitor’s experience is top of the organisers’ agenda. “We are justifiably proud of the tremendous displays mounted by our exhibitors.” comments Show Director, Paul Harwood of Westrade Group Ltd. “At every event, we witness our exhibitors putting huge efforts into their displays and the recent event was no exception. The live working demonstrations are a key element and our visitors were treated to a wide reaching programme of technologies in action.”
