For the past six years PelicanCorp has offered attendees at the Common Ground Alliance’s annual conference in the US the chance to win two tickets to Australia, and this year it spiced up the prize with two tickets to the inaugural Oceania Damage Prevention Conference, (ODPC)to be held on Australia’s Gold Coast from August 20-23, 2018, of which it is a major sponsor.
Now the benefits are flowing the other way. At the Gold Coast conference PelicanCorp, a founding sponsor of the ODPC, will be giving away a trip for two to the US along with tickets to attend the 2019 CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo taking place in Tampa, Florida, March 26-28, 2019.
For anyone involved in damage prevention of underground infrastructure in Australia, or elsewhere, it’s a great prize. The CGA conference is the premiere international event dedicated to providing educational content and resources to help protect buried assets.
The conference, owned and produced by Infrastructure Resources, is the largest event in the underground damage prevention industry, worldwide.
It is expected to draw 1,700 participants and will offer 80+ hours of educational content. With 50+ conference sessions, comprehensive workshops, numerous networking events, and 100+ exhibitors, it is the place to be if you are committed to the mission of reducing damages. It is also the venue for the CGA’s annual meeting.
As the organisers say: “There are sessions and workshops for everybody. We offer numerous opportunities to learn new information directly related to your industry, to network with peers who understand your job function and to share ideas with dedicated professionals.”
It’s still early days and there are not too many details available for the event, but the organisers are offering an early bird conference pass for $US811 until 11 August, 811 of course being, in the USA, the number to call before you dig.
Meanwhile, with less than a month to go, full details of the Oceania Damage Prevention Conference are available on its web site.
