Now housed in a new space on Level 4 of the exhibition center, AIDE has a new setup and ambience over the five-day event, including a dive education program with presentations and forums on scientific diving, ocean rescue, dive medicine and women in underwater photography. With over 60,000 divers and boaters visiting the boat show every year, exhibitors enjoy extensive exposure, with ample opportunities to interact with visitors, making sales and reaching new audiences.
Indeed, this year’s prizes worth US$25,000 do not disappoint, comprising dive travel packages to some of the best locations in Asia as well as top-of-the-line dive equipment and underwater camera gear. Judges of this year’s competition include renowned underwater photographers Tobias Friedrich of Germany, Jason Isley of the United Kingdom and Nurul Yazid of Malaysia.
The deadline to enter is 15 May 2020.
Over the past 15 years, the show has welcomed around 180,000 visitors, with an average of 10,000 visitors each year, of which 90% were divers. Attending industry professionals last year included dive operators, manufacturers, distributors, entrepreneurs and tourism boards, many of whom made use of a new B2B networking platform MIDE created just for them.
