21 May Welcome to Scuba Show 2021
Dear Scuba Show Attendees,
While the 2021 Scuba Show was physically cancelled due to COVID-19, we decided we couldn’t let the weekend pass without trying to bring some of the show into your homes! Here’s what we cooked up to help fight off the Scuba Show FOMO we’re all experiencing:
Connect with Exhibitors. (This will remain active throughout the year.) You obviously can’t walk the show floor this year, so we asked exhibitors to show you some of their products and services here. If you were at the physical show, there would be companies that you intend to see, and others that you discover walking the hall. We want you to connect with exhibitors here the same way. The “Connect with Exhibitors” section on our site is an interactive listing of exhibitors and their offerings. You’ll find descriptions, really cool videos, contact information, COVID updates for travel, and lots of Scuba Show specials!
At a glance you’ll be able to see who’s represented in different categories and what products or specials they’re offering.
For example, if you’re looking for your next diving destination, you can narrow the list down to travel generally, and from there to exhibitors in specific areas of the world where you would like to go.
In the same way, you can look for gear – by manufacturer, in general for dive equipment, or more narrowly by BCDs. The same for art, apparel and jewelry, local dive retailers, certifying agencies, underwater photography, insurance providers, dive associations…and more. You also have the option to bring up exhibitors at random – almost as if you were walking the show floor and just stumbled on someone new!
Product Showcase. The #1 reason why people attend Scuba Show is to see the latest dive equipment and accessories. Our Product Showcase allows you to discover and read about products, see images and watch videos of the gear in action. These are items the manufacturers were planning to present to you at the show, and while we can’t all be together in person, you can still scope out your next purchase and find your nearest dealer!
Seminars. We hosted six popular sessions live last year. In case you missed them, they were recorded are available to watch on demand on our website and Facebook page. You’ll find sessions on the best California beach dive spots, getting back into the water with your camera system, diving in the age of Covid, and more!
New this year — Karl Huggins, Ken Kurtis and Captain John Kades have updated their very popular seminar on the facts and lessons learned form 2020 California diving facilities. This prerecorded session premiers on our Facebook page “live” at 10am PST.
