It’ll be here FAST … the first Australian Dive Event in 3 years!!! Unbelievable.

And the line up is impressive; both for speakers in the OZTek Advanced Conference, as well as the workshops, exhibitors and specialists at the OZDIve Show.
A truly unique event, destined specifically for divers of ANY level (even those who are ‘thinking about it!)

The 2022 Presenters – and their incredible topics can be found Here:

( More topic details listed on their individual bio pages.

OZTek introduces two new speaker additions: Bobby Chacon, FBI Dive Team Founder will be doing two talks. First: About the creation of this (not-well-known) specialised unit, why it is necessary, the training required for the FBI Diving agents, the technology they use etc. It’s a fascinating look into this little known world and the first timeChacon has ever spoken to a dive forum.

His second talk is about the actual real life Crime scenes they have had to navigate, including notable dive operations such as the TWA Flight 800 (1996), Space Shuttle Colombia (2003), Laci Peterson (2003) and the Minneapolis Bridge collapse (2007).

Another new face is Richard Fitzpatrick ACS – an Emmy awarded cinematographer and Research Fellow at James Cook University specialising in sharks. Richard, a rebreather convert, will be providing equipment and stories behind the lens whilst filming for Attenborough, Nat Geo and Discovery specials – including his numerous visits to the ER Department! Richard’s second topic is about his shark tagging and mapping research, including a scientific response to shark bites!
