Centre for Advancement of Trenchless Technologies (CATT) and Benjamin Media Inc., are pleased to announce the 2020 Trenchless Technology Road Show to be held at the City of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada on May 20-21, 2020.  

This is Canada’s largest trenchless technology event focused on buried infrastructure condition assessment, construction, renovation, and asset management and subsurface utility engineering.

The show will have over 60 exhibitors, two full days of presentations, and over 450 attendees.  These cost saving state-of-the-art technologies and practices can help water utilities to renew failing and aging buried infrastructure. Come learn and meet the experts! 



Dr.-Ing. Robert Stein is the Managing Associate of Stein & Partner GmbH and Managing Director of S & P Consult GmbH and the manager and developer of the Underground Infrastructure Training and Competence Center (UNITRACC) –an international advanced training and educational platform for the underground infrastructure (www.unitracc.com). UNITRACC was developed in cooperation with the National Association of the German Construction Industry and the largest E-learning-platform in the area of civil engineering.

His business activities include project management, realization of major projects, coordination of interdisciplinary project teams, and consultation for cities to optimize their investment planning and their rehabilitation concepts for water and wastewater networks, based on the aging model developed by S & P.

He has been involved with a multitude of pipe jacking and microtunneling projects, most notably as a technical advisor for the construction of a gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea by pipe jacking by Nord Stream AG, Switzerland in 2007; and as the project manager of the 52 km deep-tunnel sewage system (Emscher Kanal).

Currently his main focus is the application of deterioration and aging models for the development of demand-orientated maintenance and rehabilitation strategies being utilized in more than 20,000 km of pipeline.

He is also the author of the reference book “Wertermittlung von Abwassernetzen (Asset Valuation of Sewer Networks)”, Trenchless Technology for Installation of Cables and Pipelines – 2nd Volume: Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), of the chapter on pipe jacking works (ATV DIN 18319) and co-author of the 4th edition of the international bestseller “Instandhaltung von Kanalisationen” (Rehabilitation of Drain and Sewer Systems) as well as of various technical articles.


We are excited to announce that we are going back to the Niagara Falls for the Trenchless Technology Road Show 2020!

The 2020 Road Show will be held on May 20 – May 21 at the ScotiaBank Convention Centre, 6815 Stanley Avenue, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada L2G 3Y9.
