This year’s ScubaCon event will be a hybrid, with virtual seminars from Sept. 4 to 7 and the in-person event at Weaver’s Sept. 9 & 10. During the virtual seminars, you will be able to learn about some of the world’s top dive destination form the exhibitors themselves. Our wonderful friends from around the world will be presenting first hand up-to-date information about your favorite dive spots. At the end of each day, attendees will get one entry for each seminar attended that day, for a chance to win a trip donated by one of the presenters.
