Readers wishing to get the latest information, any time, any place, on ongoing preparations for the IUT ’11, again to be held at the Hagerbach Test Gallery near Sargans, Switzerland, on September 14 and 15, 2011, need only to click on www.iut.ch. The IUT‘s homepage has been completely redesigned, and supplies, in German and English, all the information currently required. This single click suffices for exhibitors and visitors to browse opinions on the last IUT, information on the various event features, such as the topics stage, technical seminar, partner country Brazil and the latest list of exhibitors, and obtain assistance in finding the right hotel. And – a complete innovation, specially introduced for the upcoming IUT ‘11: intending visitors who register early online (see “Registration“) pay only 50.– CHF (instead of 60.– CHF) for admission to both days of the fair. You can also sign up for the IUT newsletter, putting you tunnel lengths ahead of the competition with regular IUT information: www.iut.ch.
The innovative IUT ’11 Tunnelling Fair – Innovation Under-ground – is to be held on Sep tember 14 and 15, 2011, in the Hagerbach Test Gallery close to Sargans, Switzerland. The tour of the workings has been specially shortened for the IUT ‘11, to provide visitors with shorter routes to the contacts they need. As in 2008, the rear area of the workings will be accessible via the highly popular IUT Shuttle.
The IUT Topics Stage, a feature very well received in 2008, provides the optimum platform for product presentations, unveiling of innovations and technical discussions. Active audience participation is also possible here. With 5000 m2 of exhibition space in the workings, and 2000 m2 in the open, the IUT provides adequate capacity for exhibits. A wide-ranging technical seminar, featuring top-ranking speakers focusing on “Reconstruction and Maintenance“, is again a programme feature.
Research, testing and development for tunnel engineering under authentic conditions has been conducted, in a form unique in the world, at the Hagerbach Test Gallery near Sargans, in eastern Switzerland, since 1970. The workings extend for more than 5.2 km, and are being continuously expanded. Only large cross-section zones of the Hagerbach Test Gallery are to be used for the IUT ‘11, assuring short communications routes and optimum positioning of the exhibition stands – in short: even greater trade-fair quality for both exhibitors and visitors.
