  • "PDCA’s conferences are ones we invest in."

    Christian Cunningham (CEO) ( International Construction Equipment (ICE) )
    “Sponsorship has allowed us to be exposed to many in the Driven Pile industry. PDCA conferences are still intimate enough that you can have real conversations face-to-face; something that other events just don’t have. If we’re going to invest in a conference, PDCA’s conferences are ones we invest in.”
  • "Everybody gets a chance to share their story"

    Bill Marczewski, P.E.
    “The PDCA Annual Conference is one of a few events where the entire community of dedicated deep foundation participants gather to exchange ideas and share industry knowledge.  Everybody gets a chance to share their story, and hear those of others, at this event.”
  • “We’ve seen all of this incredible value out of our PDCA sponsorship”

    Kurt Seufert (COO) ( International Construction Equipment (ICE) )
    “Where are we going to see new customers, gain exposure, and meet new contacts? We’ve seen all of this incredible value out of our PDCA sponsorship and we’re really happy to be a part of their annual conference and look forward to next year.”
  • “The conferences have benefitted my personal growth and that of my business”

    Eric Alberghini, P.E. ( Blakeslee Arpaia Chapman, Inc. )
    “Having been a pile driver for over 15 years prior to getting involved with the PDCA, I am surprised at how much more I've learned at the conferences and how much it has benefitted my personal growth and that of my business!”
  • "The New Orleans Conference was one of the best."

    Mike Elliott ( Vice President Equipment Corporation of America (ECA) )
    Great location, accommodations, venue, exhibits and food. Keep up the good work and thanks.
