Calling all members of the dive industry! A packed schedule awaits at the GO Diving Show Trade-Only Day on Friday 21 February. Supported by the Scuba Industries Trade Association (SITA), it is only open to those working within the diving industry or special invite-only guests – the GO Diving Show Trade Day should be on your ‘must-visit’ list for 2020!
The main exhibition hall will be open from 12noon to 6pm, giving you chance to chat business-to-business with training agencies, manufacturers, retailers, specialist tour operators, resorts, dive centres and liveaboards, plus you can also give our VR experiences a go, and we will have our interactive experiences – The Cave and The Wall – open for you to have a go! The Cave was massively popular last year, and gives you 30 metres of winding, narrow cave to scramble through, but new for 2020 is The Wall. See how good you’d be at reaching some of the remote diving locations people like Andy Torbet head for – and if you really want to get the competitive streak going, one of the four climbing routes will have a timer attached, and it will be showing the fastest time of the weekend. Could it be you?
Many of the exhibitors will be hosting a drinks reception on their booths from 4pm-6pm, for further networking in a more-social environment.
We are flying diving industry expert Tec Clark in from the USA to be our Keynote Speaker on the trade day.
Tec Clark has held elite positions in the industry, including Managing Director of the University of Florida’s Academic Diving Programme and National Director of the YMCA Scuba Programme, and his acclaimed ScubaGuru brand is dedicated to giving dive pros the tools and techniques they need to be great leaders.
Tec Clark holds over 40 professional certifications with over 15 diving agencies, and has received numerous honours for his instructional abilities. He has co-edited several diving texts, and has appeared as a diving expert on A&E, The Learning Channel, and Outdoor Life Network. He is currently the Associate Director for Aquatics and Scuba Diving at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Tec will be presenting on the Main Stage throughout the Trade Day.
