We're Celebrating

In March 2019, it will be 20 years since OZTek was first inspired and created. Richard Taylor and David Strike conceptualised and brought together a unique combination of real-life adventure and diving technological innovation.

20 years on, OZTek not only continues to celebrate those to step over previous sand-drawn lines and boundaries but also embraces all aspects of diving bringing like-minds together to inspire and educate.

When:  March 16-17, 2019    Where:  International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour

OZTek2019, is the only Australian bi-annual one-stop adventure into the dynamic world of diving. We bring together the world’s greatest divers, scientists, explorers, trainers and photographers. Impossible to replicate, get ready to absorb the excitement, discover new adventures and destinations, learn new possibilities and, most importantly, have a heap of fun.

The OZTek2019 - All about the Adventure

Every two years, over 40 Diving Giants arrive down-under to share their discoveries, adventures, achievements, personal journeys and blow us away with what’s possible.

Each presenter brings unique, exciting (often sobering) topics heard first at OZTek. These seriously extraordinary divers, at the top of their careers, provoke awe, provide knowledge, improve methodology and above all, entertain.
