Great Southern Press


It is with great pleasure that I invite you to Trenchless Australasia 2009: the 8th National ASTT Conference and Exhibition. The trenchless industry in Australia has reached a new level of maturity as the response to the 2008 conference and exhibition demonstrates. Melbourne in 2009 will build on this success to further consolidate the industry, provide information about new projects and technology and create many great networking opportunities. Trenchless Technology is increasingly being pushed to the forefront as a solution for many critical issues; including solving Australia's water shortage, reducing the carbon footprint of construction and installing new infrastructure in built-up or environmentally sensitive areas. Melbourne is Australia's home of sport, playing host to the Australian Open Tennis, Formula One Grand Prix, the Melbourne Cup horserace and the home of AFL. Taking place in Grand Final Week, Trenchless Australasia 2009 will allow delegates to truly appreciate the atmosphere that takes over the city every September. The event itself is located at Melbourne Park Function Centre, part of the tennis centre which plays host to the Australian Open each summer, and located just a stone's throw from the famous MCG. Melbourne has more to offer than just sport and is also famously the home of the arts, good restaurants and European-style café culture. The social program will provide opportunities to enjoy all that Melbourne has to offer and delegates will also have many options to visit before and after. Getting down to business, the event itself will include; · A technical program of international standard · An exciting and interactive trade exhibition · Non-technical papers on a variety of interesting topics · A highly enjoyable social and networking program · Hands-on training and workshops · Live equipment demonstrations This is a must for anyone who is interested in underground infrastructure, whether you are an asset owner, contractor, supplier or manufacturer. I look forward to seeing you in Melbourne in September 2009.

The 8th National ASTT Conference and exhibition takes place on September 20-22, 2009 at the Melbourne Park Function Centre.

This event is shaping up to the biggest and best national ASTT conference ever held and will combine a trade exhibition with a technical conference of international standard, workshops and training and a glittering social and networking program. Taking place during Grand Final week it's the perfect time to see Melbourne at the height of footy-finals fever.
