Zero Damages. You Are The Solution.

The CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo began in 2004 as the Underground Focus Academy. In 2006 we began hosting the CGA Annual Meeting and the name was changed to help build the CGA brand. This event is the premiere international event dedicated to providing educational content and resources to help protect buried assets. The Conference, owned and produced by Infrastructure Resources, LLC, is the largest event in the underground damage prevention industry, drawing nearly 1,700 participants and offering 80+ hours of educational content. Common Ground Alliance (CGA) holds their annual meeting at this event, and with conference sessions, comprehensive workshops, numerous networking events, and 100+ exhibitors, it is the place to be if you are committed to the mission of reducing damages.

Whether you have attended every Conference over the last 15 years, or if this will be your first time, there are sessions and workshops for everybody. We offer numerous opportunities to learn new information directly related to your industry, to network with peers who understand your job function and to share ideas with dedicated professionals. We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Have something to share? Let us know at
