Dates For Rebreather Forum 4 Have Been Announced


Rebreather Forum 4 will be held Thursday through Saturday, April 20-22, 2023 at the old University of Malta campus in Valletta, Malta, organizers announced this week.

The purpose of the scientific and trade-only meeting is to advance the diving community’s state of knowledge regarding rebreather technology and its use, with the goal of improving rebreather diving safety and performance. Proceedings of the meeting will be published and made publicly available.

According to RF4 organizer Michael Menduno:

“We are just in the process of finalizing the arrangements with the hotel, meeting and exhibition site, and have set up a preliminary website with the basic details and a place for you to express your interest and get on our mailing list for updates. We expect to have registration up and running soon.

“And yes, there will be diving — shipwreck diving to be specific, with the help of our friends at RAID and Heritage Malta!”

The event will be sponsored by DAN Europe, PADI, DAN and Heritage Malta.
