Exciting Things are Happening at Cutting Edge

Cutting Edge is a key, must-attend conferences on the tunneling industry calendar. Featuring technical sessions and speakers focused on key industry issues and advances, Cutting Edge is a professional event you will truly enjoy and remember.


From the East to the West Coast, North America’s tunneling industry is flourishing. In 2018, the seventh annual Cutting Edge Conference convenes in Atlanta, Georgia, to examine the latest advances in tunneling technology, its methodology and how they can be harnessed to assist the nation’s major upcoming underground projects.

Organized in partnership by North American Tunneling Journal and the UCA of SME, the Cutting Edge Conference features a tailored, high-end single-track program of subject-specific presentations that focus on innovation and practical experience, as well as extended in-depth industry discussion sessions – which have become a trademark of this conference.

The Cutting Edge Conference is a great opportunity to learn about the next generation of underground construction projects in North America and meet the owners building them. Plus, with a dedicated exhibition, social functions, and a superb conference field trip to the City of Atlanta’s Water Supply Program – hosted by Stantec and Atkinson/Technique JV – there are plenty of networking opportunities.
