The Shows for Scuba Divers!

Twice a year the diving world gears up for two highlights of the sport's calendar - the London International Dive Show (LIDS) at ExCeL, and the Birmingham Dive Show (DIVE) at the NEC.

Organised for more than 25 years by DIVER, Britain's best-selling diving magazine, each event attracts hundreds of exhibitors offering the latest diving holidays, training courses, and dive gear - on display and to buy - and is visited by thousands of experienced and aspiring divers from the UK, Europe and beyond.

The Dive Shows also deliver an unrivalled programme of free presentations from the world's top diving speakers. And this is combined with popular in-hall features such as the Try Dive Pool, Rebreather Pool, PhotoZone, and New Product Showcase, plus themed Travel and Dive-Training areas.

Coming to ExCeL, London on 11-14 February, the next big date for your diary is LIDS 2016.

If you've been to the London International Dive Show before, you'll know that everything under the sun (and the sea) can be found there. Compare or buy all that "essential" kit you've been hankering after; plan or book dive trips; or meet some of sport diving's biggest names.
