It was a fabulously planned and executed event! Asian Diver Magazine, the organizer of this year’s Asian Dive Expo in Singapore’s Suntec Convention Centre have a lot of kudos going their way for organizing such a brilliant trade show. We were invited to speak for half an hour each day of the three days of the dive expo. The number of people in the halls were staggering and that truly speaks well for the Asian dive industry.

The prominent WWF booth during ADEX is the backdrop of our group picture. With us L-R are Abi Virjee of WWF Singapore, dear friend John Rumney of Eye to Eye Marine Encounters, us and PANDA a.k.a. Lineke!

WWF Singapore’s booth was in a prime spot with WWF Singapore information stand positioned at the Conservation Zone near the stage.

Abi Virjee WWF Singapore Coral Triangle Partnership Manager also gave a great follow-up talk entitled “Sustainable Seafood and How You Can Make a Difference” after our Coral Triangle expedition presentation.  Abi’s talk helped raise awareness about the ongoing WWF Singapore Seafood Campaign.  The new Singapore Seafood Guide was distributed at the show and across the region as an insert in the publications Asian Diver Magazine and Scuba Diver Australasia. In addition, the famous Panda Mascot was on hand to help distribute copies to visitors at the show.
