The 2018 event rides the successes of 2017
The inaugural event in 2017 brought together all stakeholders in the dive industry: Dive Operators, liveaboards, resorts, travel providers, dive training organizations, manufacturers, photographers, conservationists, scientists, the media and more. The attendees, representing over 60 organizations learned and shared valuable perspectives and specific tips and practices to improve their businesses. Participants walked away with an expanded network of ocean people on the same path.
The event gave attendees simple steps that they can apply immediately to streamline their businesses, attract loyal customers and staff, increase revenues, and collaborate with other stakeholders to lower costs. Ongoing support continues and networking grows through a closed Sustainable Dive Industry Pros FaceBook Group.
