After many years as a co-organizer of Tekdive Antwerp, it was time to spread my own wings in 2019. And just like that, Tec-Expo was born. An innovative expo, organized by a young, passionate team with new fresh ideas. With the purpose to deliver a well organized, affordable expo with great shows and presentations, wokshops at an attractive venue.
The one-day first show was a big succes, but we wanted more.
So before, during but mostly after the Tec-Expo we listened to the exhibitors, speakers and visitors. We noticed that the market of the recreative diver who wanted more, who was curious about "technique and safety issues" is increasing. Interest in finning techniques, bouyancy issues is growing so we decided to widen the range and notlimit ur show to "tech-only" interests.
That's when Dive-expo was born!
