 Record Attendance for the 10th Annual Alabama Damage Prevention Summit!
Gulf Shores is not a bad place to be when you have nothing on your mind. However, in the 3rd week in September, stakeholders from across the state and beyond descended upon the Lodge with a mission on their mind.
Keeping up with and staying ahead
of the underground projects was just one of the hot topics discussed at this year’s event. Dynamic and informative speakers led the audience to redefine issues and make new friends. If you’re the excavator, the locators may become your new friend and of course, if you’re the locator, maybe we need to try to better understand the pressures placed on the excavator. It is clear that we’re
going to see a lot more of one another over the next 5 years, so it would make sense to work together to help one another be more successful.
This year’s exhibit hall was hopping. First time vendors as well as first time attendees made the Summit explode with energy and kept it fun and easy to learn.
That’s really the purpose of the Summit in the first place. Bring stakeholders together to share perspectives and experiences to create a better path
for public safety and the protection of underground utilities... and do it together as a team!
