The unmissable event will once again feature a world-class conference program, a packed exhibition hall, valuable networking opportunities and best-in-class training courses on trenchless topics.

The ASTT’s 13th national conference and exhibition – organised by Great Southern Press, the publisher of Trenchless International and Trenchless Australasia – has grown to be one of the largest dedicated Trenchless Technology events in the world, recognised globally as a leading forum for the discussion of the latest international developments.

The theme of the event will be ‘Engaging beneath the surface’, designed to represent the role the ASTT plays between the different stakeholders in Australasia’s no-dig community.


No-Dig Down Under’s exhibition hall promises to be the largest in the event’s history, featuring world leading trenchless manufacturers, suppliers and service providers.

Following the demand for exhibition space in 2017, the hall has been extended to make room for even more trenchless companies.

In 2019, a theatre will also be positioned in the hall where toolbox sessions and educational presentations will be hosted.

Social functions

A range of social functions will once again accompany the event.

The events will be unique to Melbourne and present an opportunity for international and interstate guests alike to experience one of the world’s greatest cities.

The pinnacle of No-Dig Down Under’s schedule of events will be the Gala Dinner and Awards Evening.

The formal event will include the presentation of the prestigious ASTT Awards, which recognise excellence and high achievement in Australasia’s no-dig industry.


A number of sponsorship packages are available for the event, including the naming rights to the prestigious Gala Dinner and Awards Evening.

Sponsoring and exhibiting at NDDU will give unparalleled access to decision makers in the trenchless industry, positioning brands in front of installation and rehabilitation contractors with real purchasing power, as well as key decision makers and project specifiers from councils and major water, telecommunications and energy utilities.

All sponsorship packages include exhibition space, as well as many other attractive inclusions.

Conference program

The Call for Papers for the event will be announced is expected to open in September 2018.

Papers will be requested to cover case studies, new and emerging technologies, challenging projects and environments, industry skills and training, and risk management.

The ASTT is once again assembling a leading group of trenchless professionals, representing a cross section of the industry, who will form the event’s technical committee.

The committee will sort through the submissions and select the papers that will form the conference program.

Training courses

A range of training courses on trenchless methods will be presented prior to the conference commencing.

The courses will be presented by industry leaders from Australia and overseas and will be of value to anyone who encounters trenchless technologies as part of their employment.

The courses have been licenced by the ASTT from the North American Society for Trenchless Technology and are considered the global industry standard for Trenchless Technology education.

More information on the subject matter of the courses will be available later in 2018.
