The Roundtable! Presented by Planet Underground

When: Tuesday, Sept 28 & Wednesday, Sept 29
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Where: Broadbent Arena
Price: Free

Join us at The Roundtable, a series of four-person unscripted conversations focusing on the risk of excavation damage to underground utilities. Seated at tables face-to-face, participants from various parts of the utility industry discuss strategies designed to protect workers and the public from excavation related accidents.
Each session is themed and begins with a moderator’s toss-up question, but where the conversation ultimately leads is up to the participants. They may not always agree, but they always meet in the middle with their honest and insightful thoughts regarding excavation safety.
Sessions are free. Registration is not required.
