Organizers of the Scuba Show 2021, scheduled for the weekend of May 22nd in Long Beach, California, have announced the event will not take place this year.
The next in-person Scuba Show will be held May 14th-15th, 2022.
According to an email sent by Scuba Show organizers:
“Last year, we told you that there was ‘no way to responsibly hold an event of this size with people from around the world for the foreseeable future.’ When we wrote that, we never would have guessed the ‘foreseeable future’ would extend well over a year.
“To bridge the gap, we are working on a resource for divers – for you. Information from our exhibitors with videos, specials, new products, travel and more.”
The resource, available from May 22nd, 2021 through the end of the year, will include regular COVID updates about the status and requirements of travel to your favorite or bucket list destinations, organizers said.
“The hope is that this resource will help keep you connected to diving while we patiently wait another year to gather in person. You’ll hear more from us in the coming weeks.”
Those who requested a ticket transfer last year will automatically be applied to next year’s show (as well as last year’s offer to double them to bring a friend). Those who would prefer a full refund can send an email to [email protected] with the subject line “Refund please.”
