This year, the North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT) is celebrating 30 years of industry advocacy and education.

As NASTT continues to grow and take on new challenges, it is committed to serving and supporting its diverse industry partners. NASTT represents municipalities and public utilities, consultants and engineers, manufacturers and suppliers, trenchless contractors and academia. The organization reaches out to all these groups and shares with the community the latest industry trenchless advancements and their continuing education opportunities. For 30 years, the all-volunteer members of NASTT have presented non-commercial information seminars and training about green, alternative engineering methods to North American communities.

The annual NASTT No-Dig Show is an important educational and networking event, which attracts some 2,000 professionals each year. The conference and trade show features 160 non-commercial technical papers; an exhibition hall with more than 200 trenchless companies displaying their products and services; a series of specialized trenchless training courses, networking events and special industry related awards.

In 2019 the Canadian Regional Chapters of NASTT hosted the inaugural No-Dig North conference. Nearly 600 attendees from across Canada met in Calgary to learn from each other, network and discuss all things trenchless. The show will be an annual event, with the 2020 No-Dig North being held October 19-21 in Vancouver, BC.
