TRADE DAY INFORMATION

 

The GO Diving Show is a brand-new, interactive and engaging dive show aimed at existing divers and those interested in entering the sport, but as well as having a weekend for consumers, there is a dedicated trade-only day on the Friday.

 

Only open to those working within the diving industry or special invite-only guests, the GO Diving Show Trade Day should be on your ‘must-visit’ list for 2019. Manufacturers and training agencies are already planning to run seminars, workshops and member updates during the day, alongside discussion panels incorporating various dive industry gurus, and keynote speakers explaining how to improve your bottom line, make the most of your website and Social Media, and much, much more.

 

There will also be a drinks reception within the hall in the early evening for further networking in a more-social atmosphere.

 

Before submitting your credentials you first need to purchase your ticket. This ticket only covers the Friday trade show and you have to fall into one of the below categories to be eligible to purchase.

 

 

Only then should you submit your credentials. It’s important you give the same information with your ticket purchase as you submit below. Failure to do so will result in your ticket being cancelled and refunded back to your card.

 

Valid photographic ID will be required in the same name as the ticket to collect your entry badge on the day of the show.
