Exhibit at DIVE 2016
Stand space is selling fast for DIVE 2016 (22/23 October) and some 250+ companies are expected to take part. The list of companies is growing daily, and the aim is to make this year's event the biggest and best Dive Show ever. Once again, diving experts and celebrity speakers from all over the world will be giving free seminars and presentations to hundreds of seasoned and wannabe divers. The Try Dive Pool and Rebreather Pool will also be major features of the show, as will be the New Product Showcase, the PhotoZone and the new TekDeck presentations.
Always Leading The Way
Reassuringly long established, the Show's success is thanks to its continued market evolution. Only through the passion and expert knowledge of our DIVER Group team can the Show format be developed year on year ensuring it is always in total harmony with the spectrum of visitors. At DIVE 2016, we will be focusing on attracting newcomers as well as satisfying the thirst for knowledge and information of our seasoned divers. Potential newcomers will be targeted over an extended period of time with lots to get their imaginations going. This is all in addition to the many presentations, seminars and in-hall features that the Dive Shows are famous for. So when you book a stand at DIVE 2016 you can be sure that you're signing up to a Show that's constantly evolving!
Who Should Exhibit?
A stand at DIVE 2016 is a must for any company targeting divers but, with over 80% of the audience also being ABC1 and under 45 years of age, the Show provides an excellent opportunity for organisations to meet large numbers of young, active and affluent people.

- Tourist Boards
- Travel Agents and Dive Destinations
- Dive Liveaboards and Charter Boats
- Underwater Photographic Suppliers
- Boat and Chandlery Suppliers
- Compressor Manufacturers
- Leisure Clothing Companies
- Diver Training Agencies and Schools

Attracting the Right Visitors
It's quality, not quantity, that counts - It's a phrase you hear often enough and at DIVE 2016 it couldn't be more true. The Show goes all out to attract the keenest divers around - whatever agency they may have trained with.
Attracting more than 16,500 divers in just two days to DIVE 2015 could be considered quite an achievement. But for DIVE 2016 we're planning to do even better and here are just some of the promotional highlights:
- The full support of PADI, BSAC and SSI
- The full backing of the DIVER Group - the UK's largest diving media organisation whose products include DIVER Magazine and Divernet
- Advertising and editorial support in key UK diving magazines over a three month period
- Regular show updates sent to 30,000-plus Divernet Xtra subscribers
- A 6,000 strong direct mail shot to a regional selection of visitors from our 'active divers' database
- Regional and national press coverage including 'ticket giveaway' competitions
- Link-ups with radio and TV stations
- E-mail campaign to more than 20,000 past visitors
