The TEKDiveUSA conference that was scheduled to take place in April 2021 has been postponed, the latest victim of the COVID-19 pandemic. It had already been moved once after the 2020 dates were cancelled due to the pandemic.
The biennial advanced and technical diving event, which comprises an exhibition, a conference and a gala awards dinner, will now be rescheduled yet again, but as yet, a new date has not been announced.
In a statement on the tekdiveusa website, it said: “TEKDiveUSA has been monitoring the evolving situation on coronavirus both in the US and around the globe. Due to the public health emergency we are currently facing, we believe that it is not possible to move forward with TEKDiveUSA.2020 as planned.
“In the interest of addressing the health and safety concerns of our stakeholders and in consultation with partners throughout the technical diving industry, as well as local and federal health agencies we have decided not to move forward with the TEKDiveUSA.2020 Conference in April. We are currently considering a number of potential alternatives to create the best possible experience for our community. Our intention at this time is to reschedule the Conference. All exhibition spaces, sponsorships, attendee tickets will be honored at the rescheduled Conference.”
