by more than 100 companies.
Exhibitors were drawn from the United Arab Emirates, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, United States and Russia. In addition, there was a significant presence from European countries including those participating in the German Pavilion. The exhibition was busy with a steady flow of visitors drawn from several countries and the majority of exhibitors reporting a high level of interest and optimism for future business as a direct result of the show. There was also evidence that negotiations for equipment sales were also sealed at the show.
The Conference program also attracted its highest attendance of 285 delegates. A keynote presentation was made by ISTT past chairman, Dr. Dec Downey. The first day presented a wide range of papers both on new construction techniques, as well as rehabilitation, while Day 2 continued with more papers on the rehabilitation theme.

This is the only event dedicated to this specialised market in the region and we welcome the excellent support from our exhibitors and sponsors, as well as the municipalities and utility companies who signed up to attend the conference and exhibition.”
