No-Dig Down Under is coming, save the date!

It’s time to save the date for No-Dig Down Under, one of the world’s largest conferences and exhibitions dedicated to Trenchless Technology.

In 2019, No-Dig Down Under will head to Melbourne, Australia on 10–13 September for what promises to be an unmissable event.

It 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.

Organised by Great Southern Press, the publisher of Trenchless Australasia magazine, the event is recognised globally as a leading forum for the discussion of the latest developments and innovation in the industry.

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.

Conference program

The Call for Papers for the event will 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.


In 2019, No-Dig Down Under’s exhibition hall will once again feature world leading trenchless manufacturers, suppliers and service providers in what will be the largest gathering in the event’s history.

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

Training courses

A range of training course 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.

Licensed by the ASTT from the North American Society for Trenchless Technology, the training courses are considered the global industry standard for Trenchless Technology education.
