NO-DIG Live returns to East of England Arena and Events Centre for third time.


Westrade Group, the organiser of NO-DIG Live, the UK’s biennial trenchless technology exhibition, has chosen the East of England Arena and Events Centre as the venue for the 14th edition of the show, 18-20 September, 2018, citing the venue’s capacity, versatility, and hospitality provision as key reasons for its choice.

Paul Harwood, managing director of Westrade Group, explained the decision to return to the East of England Arena and Events Centre for the third time since 2014, saying “After inaugurating the event over thirty years ago it has grown every year, almost without exception. We’ve held the event at a few different locations around the UK in that time, but the East of England Arena offers us everything we need in one place, with plenty of room to grow, and an understanding of the unique requirements of our event, particularly the need for groundwork demonstrations. ”

“In addition to the central location of the arena,” continued Harwood, “holding the event here means we’re able to stage our gala dinner and awards ceremony on-site rather than at a nearby hotel, making use of the superb conferencing and catering facilities that are now available. The East of England Arena and Events Centre also boasts an impressive outdoor event space that is perfect for live demonstrations, and a modern, pillarless Arena building that enables access for vehicles and large exhibits of machinery and technology, allowing us to offer exhibitors a wide range of options for their presences.”

Dean Rees, business development manager for the East of England Arena and Events Centre, was enthusiastic about the Westrade’s decision to return to the Arena after the success of the 2016 event there, saying, “It will be a pleasure to welcome NO-DIG Live back to the Arena. We have watched this event grow over the years, attracting more and more visitors, and I’m delighted that our recent refurbishment has enabled Westrade to hold the exhibition and gala dinner together, simplifying arrangements for guests and visitors. NO-DIG Live makes full use of our indoor and outdoor space for exhibits and live demonstrations, and this year it has chosen to take advantage of dining and catering services too, ably delivered by our  new hospitality partner, Amadeus.”
