"Asian Dive Expo" (ADEX), Asia's most popular scuba-diving exhibition brand, has announced the first-ever Maldivian edition of the expo.
According to the brand, the Maldivian edition of the event, "ADEX Maldives" is scheduled to be held in March 2023 and will feature the leaders in the Maldives dive sector.
The organizers said that the expo will run alongside the eighth edition of the Maldives Marine Expo, at the Hulhumalé Central Park, from March 15 - 18, 2023.
The Maldives Marine Expo, organized by the National Boating Association of Maldives (NBAM), was first held in 2016. The event is now held annually with local liveaboard operators, water sports businesses, and fisheries companies in an effort to expand investment opportunities and network among industry leaders.
ADEX has partnered with NBAM to host the Maldives edition of the expo. They have also signed a contract with Medium Private Limited, the local event management business that organised the expo.
ADEX, Asia's largest dive expo, has been running successfully in Singapore for 27-years. The brand has since expanded into a number of global destinations, including the Philippines, Malaysia, China, and India.
