A Message From The Chair

Hi ISTT members! And Happy Chinese New Year!!

Hi ISTT members! And Happy Chinese New Year!!

I am full of hope that the world is opening again after the pandemic period.

The programme for the International No Dig show in Helsinki is almost ready. The one piece missing is the post conference tour on Thursday 6 October which every Affiliated Society can vote for out
of five different possibilities. The programme gaining the most votes will win and will be the one which will be arranged. I am so eager to see the final number of delegates visiting Helsinki. Everyone should now book time from their calendar for the beginning of October for the visit. I am quite sure that you do not want to be disappointed. We will have a meeting with Paul Harwood of the Westrade team at the end of March to prepare every step for the trenchless week. After that you will hear more about the arrangements. The call for papers to the conference is now open on the conference webpage and to keep yourself updated about the arrangements please visit the show website: www.nodighelsinki.com and book the week from your calendar and send your paper in.

At the end of February I have a meeting with Peter and Enrico to prepare the last year of my chairmanship and other subjects we have in front of us before our council meeting in Helsinki on 2 October this year. I am sure that we will have many attendees for the council meeting because there will be elections through the Affiliated Societies and members for the next chair and vice chairs.

The big show, NASTT’s annual conference will take place in Minneapolis, USA in April and I will be present. I am happy to have the possibility to meet many of my American colleagues at last after the lock down. Before that the Danish society No Dig Infra has its annual meeting at the beginning of March. I would like to be there too but I have already reserved a skiing holiday the in north part of Finland, actually quite close to Santa Claus’ office. The next week No Dig Berlin will take place during the Pipeline Technology Conference on 8-9 March 2022, the first time in conjunction with the PCT. That will be worth of visiting (but I am still skiing in Lapland). In the middle of March ISTT will make an official trip to check the potential for the next International show after Helsinki which is scheduled to be in Mexico city. After the Mexico show we will have a show in the Asia-Australia time zone, maybe in Dubai. That will be decided in Helsinki where we have the next council meeting.

I wish to all of you a nice springtime and have a good start to this new year.
