Telegraph Events Launches Oceans Festival


New festival joins Outdoor Adventure & Camping Show, the London Bike Show and the Triathlon Show: London at ExCeL London

telegraphTelegraph Events has announced the launch of Oceans Festival. The new event will bring together both The London International Dive Show (LIDS) and WhaleFest – organiser of Incredible Oceans Live. For the first time ever, visitors will have the chance to enjoy the best of both experiences in one place.

Oceans Festival will be curated by Telegraph Events and will take place February 16-19 2017 at ExCeL London. It will feature special guest speakers – including biologists and dive experts – activities such as LIDS Try Dive Pool, and Incredible Oceans Live virtual reality experiences. Organisations from the scuba, travel and conservation worlds will also be exhibiting, presenting a fantastic opportunity for dive enthusiasts and families to get their hands on new gear and to find out more about exploring the world’s oceans.

Tickets to the event will be essential for all lovers of the great outdoors, as those visiting the Oceans Festival will also get access to the Outdoor Adventure & Camping Show, the London Bike Show and the Triathlon Show: London. All of these events will take place over February half-term and will be hosted at London’s ExCeL.

Steve Clark, Group Show Director at Telegraph Events, added:

“Telegraph Events is well known for launching and refreshing events that visitors love, and this exciting combination of the London International Dive Show and WhaleFest is no exception. We look forward to working closely with exhibitors and partners to build Oceans Festival into the annual celebration of our oceans.”

Nigel Eaton, MD of Dive Shows Ltd, added:

“Oceans Festival provides an exciting opportunity to grow the sport of diving in the UK. It brings an added educational aspect to the ever popular London International Dive Show, and gives visitors access to special guest experts and the opportunity to try diving.”

Ian Rowlands, Director of Whalefest, commented:

“We are very pleased to be working with Telegraph Events for a third year. Along with our sponsors and exhibitors, we’ll be educating visitors on our oceans, sharing the best whale watching destinations, and showcasing the coolest products that are created from recycled fishing gear and ocean plastics.”
