2013 STUVA Conference in Stuttgart – Countdown for Early Birds

The 2013 STUVA Conference, the get-together for everything and everyone involved in underground construction, will take place from November 27 – 29 in Stuttgart. With the Conference and its accompanying exhibition a unique international platform is available to exchange experiences with other national and international tunnel specialists.
Under the motto “Tunnels – Infrastructure for the Future” forty two experts will present papers on the following topics at the series of lectures on November 27 and 28:
International major projects

Mechanised tunnelling
Citizens` involvement, legal and contractual issues
Tunnel operation, costs
Underground construction in Stuttgart
The accompanying exhibition STUVA-Expo, which registers growing attendance figures every year, will take place on November 27 and 28, 2013. Currently a net exhibition area of more than 2,200 m² has been taken so that the result of the last exhibition running in conjunction with the fair will be exceeded 2 months prior to the start of the event itself. More than 140 leading companies from home and abroad will take advantage of this professional marketing platform and present products and services from the fields of “machines and equipment”, “material and accessories”, “planning and consultation” as well as “execution” on the underground construction sector.
On November 29, conference participants are cordially invited to take part in an excursion. On the spot they will be able to obtain proper impressions of the mega project Stuttgart-Ulm and have the new urban transit link under the Europa District presented to them. The retrofitting of the Heslach road tunnel with safety equipment will be explained and a visit can be paid to the integrated traffic control centre in Stuttgart. Of interest is also mastering methane gas during driving operations at the Scheibengipfel Tunnel as well as looking around the Mercedes Benz factory in Sindelfingen. The tunnelling machine plant at Schwanau enables you to observe the assembly of these tunnelling giants close up.
