The Roundtable – Live!

THE ROUNDTABLE – LIVE…A PICNIC AT A JOBSITE

Sponsors and Demo List | About Our Site

Join us for a National 811 Day Celebration, a great meal and conversation!

Registration has now begun for The Roundtable Live!
This “Picnic at a Jobsite” helps take up the conversation from The Roundtable in December and bring it outside where people can learn things in a hands-on environment. Attendees should not expect a trade show but a casual, educational and networking event where everyone–no matter what they do–is on equal footing. Any product or service that is used during the design, construction, protection or maintenance of underground utilities will be conducting educational demos and be part of our Planet Underground “jobsite” for a day. Participate and learn about excavation safety first hand, in action.
The Roundtable – Live! is held at the only site in the world dedicated to damage prevention!
