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 20 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 the NEC, Birmingham on 24/25 October, the next big date for your diary is DIVE 2015.

The Birmingham Dive Show has taken place every year since 1991 and if you've been to one 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.

Speaker Presentations

With the popularity of the interactive experiences within the hall itself, DIVE 2015 will again include a rolling programme of presentations from top diving speakers on both the main DIVER Stage and the Centre Stage in the PhotoZone.
 

Exhibitor Seminars

In addition to the speakers appearing on the DIVER and Centre Stages there is another way to enjoy great audio-visual presentations - the Ocean Theatres. It's here that DIVE 2015 exhibitors share their wares in depth, especially diving destinations. So whether you already have somewhere in mind or are simply trawling for ideas, keep an eye out for the daily speaker line-up.
