Highlights of Diving Talks 2022
The DIVING talks 2022, after a 2021 edition considered by many “the 2021 BEST DIVING EVENT”, comes with a new context, formats and a stronger value proposition for the supporting brands:
- Once again, the show will bring together a fantastic Speakers Panel with some of the most recognised and followed divers, explorers, scientists, and researchers;
- Capitalising on the success of the “Talks” format, DIVING talks 2022 maintains the thematic panels’, but the Speakers will engage in other debate formats;
- The brands will have more facetime with their clients and promote equipment trials, workshops, and networking opportunities during the so-called “Activities”.
- Establish in Portugal a new hub for all subjects related to diving, both technical and scientific.
The DIVING talks Speakers come from all over the world, work on different projects related to the subaquatic environment and share incredible stories with the attendees.
DIVING Talks brings notable explorers, scientists, divers, and researchers to the show.
Already confirmed: Adam Wood, Alexandre Hasche, Armando Ribeiro, Audrey Cudel, William (Bill) Stone, Brandi Mueller, Gareth Lock, Jean Claude Monachon, Leigh Bishop, Mark Caney, Mark Powell, Nuno Sá, Simon Mitchell, Stef Panis, Teresa Amaro, Tomasz Stachura, and Xavier Meniscus.
Structure of the Event
The Panels will promote the best, the most innovative content, the latest work and discoveries in diving, sub-aquatic studies, and technological development. The Panels will feature exciting presentations or debates on essential topics such as scuba diving teaching evolution.
DIVING talks 2021 will feature an exhibition area, a ‘show and tell’ expo that will host a range of exhibitors from the global diving industry, showcasing their latest services, products and technologies.
The Activities will be a space and time for joining a brand with its client base, showing, discussing or experimenting – even underwater.
WHY DO WE ATTEND THE DIVING talks?
Is it the Speakers? The Talks? The Exhibition and Equipment Trials? Or is it the venue – Tróia?
All those reasons impact one’s decision, but it is pretty evident that one of the main reasons is the Talks, the content each Speaker will share.
However, this year DIVING talks Organization wants to go a bit further. The program will feature a different type of Panel.
THE DISCUSSION EVERYBODY WILL WANT TO HEAR
Imagine having PADI, SDI and SSI in the same room to discuss the future of teaching in diving? This would be an exciting debate, wouldn’t it?
Imagine no more. Suppose you are an Instructor or simply a curious diver. In that case, this will be the right spot to listen to Mark Caney, Mark Powell and Jean Claude Monachon talking about diving through the perspective of the three biggest agencies: PADI, SDI and SSI.
Mark Caney, PADI – Professional Association of Diving Instructors’ Industry Relations and Training Executive, is President of the European Underwater Federation, President of the Rebreather Training Council and President of the World Recreational Scuba Training Council.
Mark Powell is the SDI – Scuba Diving International Director of Global Development
Jean Claude Monachon is SSI – Scuba Schools International Vice-President, International Business Development & Marketing.
TALKS & SPEAKERS
We want to hear their “Talks” and know everything about their recent achievements.
What do you get when you have in the same room Dr Alessandro Marroni, Dr Óscar Camacho and Dr Simon Mitchell? Undoubtedly an incredible amount of knowledge in diving physiology and hyperbaric medicine. If you are a diver, you know the value of such a debate.
What do you expect to see in a Bill Stone presentation?
Wouldn’t you like to discuss with Thomas Stachura, Leigh Bishop or Armando Ribeiro their findings underwater in the expeditions that led to the discovery and identification of new shipwrecks?
The Exhibition: brands and trials
It’s about talking with who knows and testing that piece of equipment even underwater if you want!
Friday, October 7, is BRANDS DAY. Try dive the Mares SCR Horizon, test your preferred scooter, and more. Bring shorts or a swimming suit. This is happening in the swimming pool. Join us on October 7. Diving Talks is also Brands Day!
