ADEX 2018 Starts 6 April in Singapore

adex3

Operating since 1995, ADEX is the biggest and longest-running dive expo in Asia, becoming one of the most popular events in the industry.

Since its handover to Underwater360 (UW360) in 2009, ADEX has seen significant expansion in size and variety, settling in Singapore, Beijing, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong. Previously known for being an established trade-show in the industry, ADEX has since evolved to be more than just a dive show, welcoming divers, non-divers, families, and students with its attractive programmes and festivities.

The show serves as an invigorating platform for the diving community – giving them a voice and providing a space they can meet, exchange ideas, and get recognition for their achievements. ADEX is dedicated to an endangered marine species every year to raise awareness of the threats they face and heighten conservation awareness. With a new species each year, visitors are always treated to fresh and exciting content delivered by the experts.

The event is proudly endorsed by major organisations in the industry such as the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association (DEMA), Singapore Tourism Board (STB), and the China Underwater Association.

In 2018, ADEX will be dedicated to sharks. Just like in 2010, when we started to combat the pressing issues facing sharks and their survival, we will be educating a new generation to raise awareness about their fragile existence.Showcasing some of the world’s top shark conservationists, defenders and photographers, ADEX 2018 will change the way the world views sharks.
