About the Conference

In mid-October 2017, GITA concluded an agreement with producers of the CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo which allowed GITA to pair its Southwest regional event with the CGA 811 conference.  Consequently, this led to back-to-back conferences taking place in the Phoenix Convention Center, March 5-8, 2018. The GITA Phoenix Conference started things off on March 5-6, and the CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo followed on March 6-8.

To introduce the respective conference communities to one another, portions of each conference were made available to attendees of the other conference.  All events of the GITA Conference were open to CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo attendees, while GITA attendees were able to participate in the CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo’s Vendor Reception, event Summits which ran through March 8th, and enjoy full access to the Exhibit Hall. In 2018, nearly 2,000 individuals visited this exhibitor venue looking for answers to their underground sensing and infrastructure damage prevention issues.

For reference purposes, links below provide access to the 2018 GITA Phoenix Conference program, sponsor prospectus, and exhibitor page.

In 2019, a GITA regional event on March 25-26, will again be paired with the CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo, March 26-28 at the Tampa Convention Center, Tampa, Florida.  Look for updates on the GITA website event page.
