The objective of the DIVING talks organization is to ramp up a different type of event. A much more immersive experience with spaces and moments where the show happens: speakers and attendees network, and brands communicate. The “Talks” won’t be confined to the classic in-room format; speakers can present their talks in one of the different “stages” available. For the brands wanting to gain visibility at the event, this is a unique opportunity to associate themselves with an event that has been called “the most important diving event in 2021”. The idea is to go way beyond the logo on…

The UASBC’s monthly Speakers Series presentations on Zoom are open to all! Details Presented by Underwater Archaeological Society of British Columbia Wednesday, April 14,…
