New dates for OZTek | OZDive Expo ‘22
Unsurprisingly, OZTek Advanced Diving Conference and OZDive Expo have been postponed. 2020 was a tough year for everyone and sadly, it looks like we’ll still be globally sorting ourselves out in 2021.
In order to provide the absolute BEST possible event, it was decided postponement was the most realistic option. As of today, Australian international borders remain closed and even within Australia, it is difficult to travel. COVID has placed us all in a constant cycle of border closures and lockdowns. In this environment, it makes it impossible to hold our usual beloved OZTek & OZDive.
It took a while to find a new date (weirdly, we’re not the only ones postponing!!) but have settled on Oct 1-2, 2022.
Note: Please be aware this is a long weekend for QLD, ACT, NSW and SA (not VIC, TAS, NT or WA). So, if you are planning to travel to Melbourne for the event, you may have an extra day up your sleeve.
Be sure to mark oztek dive conference and exhibition in your 2022 diary.
Not Everything Has Changed!
OZTek and OZDive Expo '22 will still be held at the Melbourne Conference & Exhibition Centre (Jeff's Shed) on October 1/2, 2022 – the very start of the Australian diving season.
Expectation is building; we’re all keen for a bit more normality.
“Divers tell me they want a real live, ridgy-didge, face-to-face event where everyone can meet, talk, swap ideas and socialise,” says Sue Crowe.
“MCEC has rolled out the welcome mat and continues to be very supportive in light of these trying times. It has been a tough time for them too. It’s difficult for everyone.”
The combination of the traditional OZTek Conference, alongside the updated OZDive Expo will bring together divers from all over Australia like never before.
Block the new 2022 dates (OCT 1-2, 2022) & bookmark the website as we work towards making this a truly jaw-dropping event.
