International Convention Centre Sydney

Running since 2014, the Australia International Dive Expo has today become a one stop centre platform for divers and non-divers alike to discover and learn about scuba diving and all things related to the fascinating world of diving.

The key objective of the Expo is to engage with existing divers and newbies in order to keep them inspired and curious about life underwater, while updating them with cutting-edge technologies and important conservation practices as well as other marine interests.

This platform not only useful for educational purposes, but for industry players for networking opportunities and suppliers to connect directly with their clients.

NEW IN 2018
After a highly successful 2017 expo, where we welcomed 63,000 visitors, we are once again collaborating with the Sydney International Boat Show to bring you an even more impressive 2018 event.

Taking place at the International Convention Centre, Sydney with the same floor location and space, we will be lining up even more speakers, workshops, forum, dive club activity, marine educational program for NSW schools and two additional pools for more demonstrations and experiences.

There will also be more exclusive travel deals from various dive operators. Check out ‘What’s On AIDE 2018’ to plan your visit to the expo.

We look forward to seeing you from 2 – 6 August at the ICC Darling Harbour!
