There are approximately 173 exhibitors on hand in Denver for NASTT’s 2015 No-Dig Show and the second full day of technical sessions are under way.

We know there are some of our readers who could not make the event, taking place now through March 19, so we compiled a social media synopsis of the first couple of days. (Found at the bottom of this post.) For a complete schedule of events, visit nodigshow.com.

Monday’s No-Dig Show kick-off breakfast served as jumping off point for the event and also gives the Trenchless Technology team the opportunity to formally present our Person of the Year, Project of the Year New Installation and Project of the Year Rehabilitation awards.

The 2015 Trenchless Technology Person of the Year recipient is Midwest Mole CEO Dan Liotti. Follow this link to read the full story about Dan.

(Editor’s Note: That’s Dan Liotti and his wife Laura in the photo at the top of this page. They are flanked by Tom Iseley, P.E. Director of of the Trenchless Technology Center and chairman of the Trenchless Technology Editorial Advisory Board and Trenchless Technology publisher Bernie Krzys.)
