If you live in the Middle East and love to spearfish in the Arabian Gulf, an upcoming dive expo might be right up your alley.
The third edition of the One Breath Dive Expo is set to take place at the Dubai World Trade Center on January 12th–13th, 2018 and will feature the top names in diving and spearfishing from the region.
The top dive event in the Middle East attracts visitors from the United Arab Emirates and neighboring countries, providing a platform for the Middle East’s scuba diving, freediving and spearfishing enthusiasts as well as dive professionals and business owners to gather alongside the latest brands and products on the market.
Prior to the discovery of oil, the tribes of the UAE and neighboring countries were known around the world as accomplished pearl divers and today diving remains one of the most popular water sports in the UAE.
Recreational divers, professionals and dive business owners will be travelling from neighboring countries Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and internationally to make their purchases at the expo for the upcoming year.
Exhibition founder Zarir Saifuddin said:
“Our ultimate goal is to have one of the largest dive exhibitions in the world that gathers the major dive players from the Far East, Africa, Europe and the Middle East here in Dubai. This in turn will undoubtedly increase the popularity of dive sports such as scuba, freediving and spearfishing in the UAE and the greater region. We’re now entering our third edition and this is our biggest expo yet in terms of both exhibition space, the number of exhibitors and an international dive competition we are soon to announce.”
The event features the latest products from brands including Salvimar, Carbonio G.F.T., Sea Sniper, Rabitech, and Pelagic, among others.
The expo is collaborating with over 40 regional and international professional diving and spearfishing ambassadors with a combined audience of over a million followers.
The One Breath Expo is a part of the 2018 Extreme Sports Expo taking place at the same time.
