More than just a dive show
Celebrated for more than two decades in Asia since its inception in 1995, the 25th edition of Asia Dive Expo (ADEX) – the largest, and the longest-running dive show in Asia – is driven and organized by the Underwater360 group.
It is my personal belief that everyone can do their part in helping to protect our planet. Regardless of how one chooses to look at it – we are all, inextricably connected to our oceans; from heroes that would champion a cause and go that extra mile; campaigners who would fight their entire lives to save marine species, to the divers who would seek refuge in the big blue.
Continuing my mission to liberate the inner diver, that I believe is enclaved and hidden away in just about anyone and everyone, I aim to learn with, lead, and inspire the coming generations of divers to look below the waves and change the way they – and the world – view our oceans.
Hence, I strive to support this industry impeccably, through the navigation of the Underwater360 group, work tirelessly to inspire and encourage people to explore the beauty beneath the waves and fight to sustain an ocean that we can all enjoy.
ADEX 2019 Silver Jubilee
In 2019, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ADEX show. Celebrating its 10th year since Underwater360 group’s reign of the show, we have seen each show progress from strength to strength. We would like to show our deepest appreciation to all who have contributed over the years, making ADEX the success that it is today. So, thank you to the many exhibitors, sponsors, ADEX ambassadors, speakers, volunteers and visitors who have supported us. We hope for your continuous support as we aim to grow bigger and better each year.
Learn. Lead. Inspire
Being the pioneer of unique and curated ideas, ADEX hopes to educate the public with messages of conservation and fuel their love for the ocean. We hope to influence everyone to become leaders in their own faculties, inspiring many to take a step towards marine conservation.
Entertain. Educate. Engage
ADEX strives to ensure our visitors are not only entertained, but also educated through the plethora of activities and programmes curated for the show. We hope that everyone who attends will be engaged emotionally, mentally, and even physically through activities such as the ‘try dives’ and ‘pool sessions’.
Alongside the trade exhibition platform represented by diverse trade and business stakeholders such as dive operators, equipment manufacturers, and national tourism boards, ADEX congregates distinguished VIPs and thought-leaders and speakers from across the globe. These include scientists, marine conservationists, underwater photographers and videographers. ADEX also provides a space for communities within the diving industry to meet, network, share stories, and exchange ideas.
From the existing pool of divers, ADEX endeavours to inspire non-divers or underwater aspirers to plunge into the diving world. Through curated programmes such as “try-dives” and inspirational industry figures, we hope to raise a new generation of divers and grow the diving community around the world.
