From far-flung shores to Blue Planet ll

Visitors to DIVE 2017 will have the chance to see an exceptional line-up of diving speakers on the main DIVER Stage.

Guest speakers at the show, which takes place at the NEC Birmingham on 21/22 October, will include Paul Rose, Rachel Butler, Mark Powell and Andrea Zaferes. And topics will range from exploration dives around two of the world’s most remote islands to a behind-the-scenes view of the BBC’s new Blue Planet series.

Paul Rose will be back at the NEC describing wild dives off the far-flung islands of Tristan da Cunha and Ascension; Producer/Director Rachel Butler will be giving an insight into the BBC TV series no diver will want to miss; Mark Powell will be posing the question “Dive Instructors: Can We Do Better?”; and US-based underwater investigator Andrea Zaferes will be exploring “Ultimate Underwater Movement” and “Drills & Games to Strengthen Your Dive Skills”.

Other must-see DIVER Stage presenters include Sally Cartwright (“Bluebird!”), Shane Wasik (“Basking Sharks”), Jack Perks (“Freshwater Diving in Britain”), Martyn Farr (“The Darkness Beckons”), Rosemary Lunn (“What’s Wrong with UK Diving?”) and Marcus Greatwood (“Extreme-Location Freediving”).
