DEMA Show 2017 Hosted More Than 7,850 Attendees


More than 7,850 dive industry professionals attended this year’s DEMA Show in Orlando, Florida, according to figures released this week by the organization, and had a front-row seat to all the new products that will soon be in the hands of scuba divers.

DEMA said:

“The Show’s long-standing credentialing process established by the Board of Directors helped confirm that the Show maintained a trade-only atmosphere, welcoming highly qualified buyers and influencers.”

Next year’s DEMA Show will take place in Las Vegas, and the convention will return to Orlando the following year. 2020 will see New Orleans added to the rotation.

“DEMA continues to look at additional venues for future shows, using key factors of exhibitor and attendee cost and venue availability. . . . With this year’s strong DEMA Show participation, DEMA can continue its mission of bringing businesses together to grow the diving industry.”
