Travel & Adventure Show Announces A Series of Dive Pavilions Coming in 2024


The Travel & Adventure Show has announced a series of “Dive and Watersports” events to be held in seven popular destinations in 2024.

The additions are in response to the increase in demand seen by the shows in 2023, which included increased attendance and exhibitor participation.

Many participants from the 2023 show have already reserved their space for 2024. To aid dive travel professionals in planning the 2024 event, the Travel & Adventure Show is now offering an “EARLY BIRD” rate for booking prime space in the 2024 pavilions. 

According to John Golicz, the CEO of the Travel & Adventure Show:

“The Dive & Water Sports Pavilion concept was something we added in 2023 as a test. The results have been strong and dive companies have asked us to add other key markets. So, we have. Earlier we announced the addition of New York, Washington DC and Atlanta. The incredible attendance in Denver and requests from dive companies at that venue convinced us to add Denver to the list for 2024 based on its strong dive travel market.”

 While Jonathan Golicz, the vice president of the Travel & Adventure Show, added:

“It’s all about reaching new customers and increasing bookings…The top request we had when talking with dive travel companies is ‘bring us new business’. So that’s exactly what we are doing. As savvy dive travel companies begin making their plans for 2024, the Dive Pavilions in these seven key markets provide an unmatched opportunity to reach new customers and re-establish connections with current ones. We selected markets that have not had consumer dive events for many years. Each of these cities are markets with strong dive communities and we’re looking forward to working with the industry to bring even more customers to the events.”

The 2024 Travel & Adventure Dive and Watersports Pavilion schedule includes the following destinations so far:

  • Chicago: January 13-14, 2024
  • New York: January 27-28
  • Phoenix: February 17-18, 2024
  • Washington DC: February 24-25
  • Atlanta: March 9-10, 2024
  • Dallas: March 23-24, 2024
  • Denver: March 16-17, 2024
