Seeing further into recreational diving’s future by standing on the shoulders of giants, OZTeK2013 is again ramping up to deliver a diving event like no other; one that showcases the people, the equipment, and the organisations that are helping to shape the diving world of tomorrow.

Featuring speakers and presenters drawn from around the world, OZTeK2013 will again deliver a full programme of outstanding talks, seminars and workshops. Either held in state-of-the-art theatre – with its big-screen impact – or one of the other purpose-designed conference rooms immediately adjacent to the exhibition floor, each of the presentations will represent diving info-tainment at its very best.

Whether it’s the opportunity to learn more about the latest developments in rebreathers, or dive computer technology; advances in techniques and equipment configuration; diving safety, or to listen to tales of underwater adventure that, with proper and appropriate training, lie just around the corner, these programmes provide the diving community with the opportunity to meet and talk to some of modern diving’s most accomplished personalities.
Shaping up to be a must-visit event for all divers – regardless of experience level – who are keen to check out the very best that the entire world of diving has to offer, OZTeK2013 is the one-stop shop window onto the dynamic world of underwater adventure and excitement.
