The Roundtable for Contractors 2024

Held May 9 2024, Chicago IL

We know contractors have a lot to say about today’s 811 system, but are almost always outnumbered at industry events. It’s finally time to tell their story, and we think this is something unique within the industry. Conversations were live streamed and recorded. Utility company personnel, one-call center and 811 locating companies were welcome to attend the event as audience members to ask questions, and attend the after show networking. Only contractors and those that support contractors could sponsor. 

We’d like to thank HBK Engineering for hosting this Roundtable for the 1st time and thank our sponsors for your dedicated support to damage prevention. Without you, this event could not be possible!

About the Event

The Roundtable for Contractors is a series of four-person unscripted conversations focusing on avoiding risks of excavation damage to underground utilities. Seated at tables face to face, participants from various parts of the underground utility contracting industry are invited to discuss the unique challenges in their day to day work impacting safety, damage prevention, utilization of new technologies and other topics.

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 related topics. We’d like to thank industry expert Jemmie Wang of Bizmetrix for moderating the discussions and audience Q&A.
