UCT set to dazzle Texas

Underground Construction Technology will conduct an unrivalled educational program at the San Antonio Conference.

Rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure has emerged as one of the top priorities of the incoming Obama administration. This will be a key topic for speakers at the Underground Construction Technology (UCT) International Conference & Exhibition from 20 – 22 January 2009 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, USA. Thirty-three trade associations and universities co-sponsor the sessions, providing one of the best educational opportunities of 2009 for attendees.

UCT focuses on the complete underground infrastructure industry. The event features the latest equipment, products and services targeted to meet sewer, water, gas distribution, telecom, power and energy pipelines and engineering challenges. Scores of comprehensive presentations as well as pre- and post-show workshops, association/organisation meetings, specialty conferences and much more are regular features at UCT, including countless opportunities to network in an amiable setting.

UCT’s educational program is led by prominent industry leaders who offer realistic approaches in handling workplace challenges. The 2009 program features new tutorials, engaging panel discussions, interactive presentations, detailed case histories and more. The UCT sessions qualify for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Professional Development Hours (PDHs) in conjunction with the University of Texas at Arlington. Several of the specialty sessions offer industry certification as well.

Sessions include tutorials, a Trenchless Technical Symposium and a host of specialty programs sponsored by the NASTT, Gas Technology Institute (GTI), National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO), and the Center for Underground Infrastructure Research & Education (CUIRE).

Since the event marks the first major meeting of the year, industry leaders traditionally schedule special meetings and specialty conferences in conjunction with UCT such as the third annual WaterWorks conference.

In partnership with the Gulf Coast Trenchless Association and Underground Construction magazine, WaterWorks will be held 20 – 21 January. WaterWorks will include a slate of nationally respected speakers committed to sharing their expertise and insight into the critically important water infrastructure market.

They will emphasise the construction/rehabilitation of water transmission and distribution systems, examine issues and problems, case studies and explore both near and long term solutions.

The exhibit hall will contain more than 400 booths with many state-of-the-art innovations and equipment designed to improve efficiency and profitability in an increasingly competitive market. Organisers expect that nearly 3,000 people will attend UCT.
