Tickets are selling fast for this year’s BSAC Diving Conference on the 24th October at the NEC.
Members have responded well to the new approach taken by the BSAC Diving Conference. Earlier in the year a research project on the event unveiled that members wanted to gain more knowledge on the day, have more opportunity for meaningful discussion and get greater value from the event overall.
The organisers were tasked accordingly and ticket sales so far indicate the changes are going down extremely well. The venue capacity has been increased due to demand and it’s anticipated the event will sell out before the day itself.
Here are five reasons why you can’t miss it:
1. Hear BSAC’s latest diving and training developments
Hear from BSAC’s new National Diving Officer, Sophie Heptonstall, get the latest on the Diver Training Programme and hear from BSAC Chairman Eugene Farrell on organisational strategy and new developments.
2. Hot-off-the-press 2015 incident analysis
Safety Adviser Brian Cumming will be presenting the latest findings from the BSAC Incident Report 2015 and outlining his recommendations to ensure safe diving remains at the heart of BSAC diver training and practice.
3. Listen to world-renowned external speakers
Professor Simon Mitchell returns to the BSAC conference stage to explore the respiratory challenges of diving. Plus, shark expert and Women Divers Hall of Fame member Cristina Zenato will deliver a not-to-be-missed talk on sharks.
4. Interact, discuss, feedback
There will be an expanded open forum discussion session, a more in-depth and interactive session on the Diver Training Programme, new breakout sessions and a free drinks session (courtesy of blue o two!) to chat to fellow members.
5. Better value than ever
With the top international speakers, additional sessions, access to the Dive Show all weekend, an Apeks regulator bag (worth £25) for each delegate and even a free drink at the end for all, this year’s event offers better value than ever.
As previous years, the conference will be open to all members but is most relevant for Diving Officers, Training Officers, Instructors and Branch Officers.
