ScubaCon 2023


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. Participants must be present for the entire Zoom presentation to be entered in the daily drawing. You should register in advance for the seminars using the links below!

There will be two door prize drawings each day at the in-person event on Saturday and Sunday Sept. 9 & 10.  Attendees of the in-person event will get entrees in the drawings by completing daily questionnaires.  These questionnaires are designed to introduce you to our exhibitors and provide information about their product or destination.
