OZTek 2015 promises to deliver a “diving event like no other” with a healthy mix of information, education, entertainment and inspiration aimed at everyone who dives – regardless of experience level.

This year’s event will be held at Australian Technology Park on the 14 – 15 March 2015, beginning with a variety of informal functions on the Friday evening.

The weekend activities include a full-scale Dive and Travel exhibition – showcasing everything from cameras to compressors, regulators to rebreathers, snorkels to scooters, facemasks to fins, and of course exotic overseas dive resorts and great liveaboard trips.
