Silicon Valley Hosts WESTT No-Dig
The technical sessions and training courses are unique in that sales pitches are not allowed in any of the presentations. Speakers will present case histories and projects that are beneficial to the industry as a whole.
“Attendees get the benefits of the NASTT No-Dig National Conference on a smaller scale in a local forum,” says Glynn. “WESTT speakers, who also presented at the national conference, will be presenting technical, quality peer-reviewed papers. Attendees will also have access to the latest technologies through our exhibit area, as well as receive full conference proceedings from the national conference.”
In addition to the presentations and the 20 sponsored exhibits, conference goers will meet face-to-face with industry leaders in a fun and relaxed atmosphere at several networking opportunities.
“Attendees can network during breakfast and registration each morning, during session breaks with sponsored refreshment in our exhibit area and during the luncheon,” says Glynn. “We will also be hosting a cocktail reception on the first evening of the conference.”
Register by Sept. 3 to take advantage of the lower rate of just $275 for members and $325 for non-members. Registrants will receive two days of presentations, CEU credits, the NASTT No-Dig 2011 CD Proceedings, in addition to sponsored breakfasts, luncheons and refreshments. The rates increase to $325 for members and $375 for non-members after Sept. 3. Non-member registration includes one-year membership in NASTT and WESTT for 2012.
