RETC Heads to Boston

The biennial Rapid Excavation and Tunneling Conference (RETC), the largest gathering of tunneling professionals in North America, heads to historic Boston June 11-14, 2023. The event will be held at the Sheraton Boston Hotel in the city’s Back Bay area.

RETC is renowned for its technical presentations, which span all aspects of tunneling, along with the its large exhibition, featuring about 200 leading companies in the worldwide tunneling arena.

Boston was last host to a national tunnel conference back in 2000 when it hosted the North American Tunneling Conference. At the time, the Big Dig was still in full swing, as well as various water and sewer projects, making it the epicenter of tunneling the U.S.

As a conference-goer, Boston offers a wealth of attractions during off-hours. The conference venue is located near historic Fenway Park, which will play host to the Red Sox and Rays June 12-14. Downtown Boston’s walkable Freedom Trail passes many famous landmarks and historic sites including Boston Common, the Massachusetts State House, the Old State House, Fanieul Hall, the Paul Revere House, Old North Church, the Bunker Hill Monument and the USS Constitution (“Old Ironsides”).

RETC is hosted by the Underground Construction Association of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration, in alternate years with the North American Tunneling Conference. They comprise the largest gathering of tunneling professionals in North America each year.
