Young Trenchless Professionals Networking Night

Date: Sunday, April 14, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Location: Rotunda

About: Kick off the NASTT No-Dig Show at this complimentary networking event for Young Professionals. This event is designed for young professionals in their 20s through mid-30s to get to know one another so they can connect with ease throughout the week at the NASTT No-Dig Show.

This event is for professionals under 35 years.  The event is free but you must add your ticket to your conference registration.

Opening Breakfast

Date: Monday, April 15, 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM

Location: Ballroom A

Entertainment: Join the fun with our Opening Breakfast speaker, Mr. Dana Daniels! Dana keeps the laughs going at a speedy clip using his trusty side kick Luigi the Psychic Parrot. Yes, you read correctly — a psychic parrot! In-between Dana’s outrageously funny sight gags, he sets out to prove that his little green friend is truly clairvoyant. Together, they perform such miracles as finding chosen cards, reading the mind of somebody on a cell phone and turning an audience member’s $100 bill into bird food only to have it reappear inside an egg laid by Luigi (Tough trick for a male bird). Dana takes command with a style and confidence that puts the audience at ease. His clever audience participation and an undeniably magnetic personable connection have given him wide appeal!

About: Full Conference attendees are invited to attend the opening breakfast to visit with colleagues and learn all that is in store for the week! Breakfast served at 7:30 AM. Awards and entertainment to follow.

This is a ticketed event for Full Conference attendees. Be sure to check in on Sunday to get your attendee badge and breakfast admission ticket.
