I am a big fan of scuba diving shows and events, so I couldn’t resist writing a post about them on my diving blog. Every time I can, I make sure to join. Why? I have 3 main reasons:
- Getting inspiration about new places I haven’t considered yet and discovering the new trends in the scuba diving industry.
- Seeing the latest line-up of scuba diving equipment, asking directly questions to the manufacturers’ representatives and buying gear taking advantage of special discounts.
- Meeting other inspiring scuba divers and networking for my blog.
Here are some pictures I took at Paris International Dive Show last January, on my way back from the Philippines to Scotland.
