OZTek2019 saw a small increase in exhibitor space but again, some of the larger equipment manufacturers were missed - many visitors commented that they wished to see more equipment on display. However for those who did attend, overwhelmingly, the results have been positive, most stands reporting quality audience and excellent sales.
The new session schedule changes have been overwhelmingly praised. The gap between each speaker session allowed delegates more time to move around and visit the stands. Also keeping all the main theatres in the hall, made it easy for delegates to smoothly move around the hall and not waste any time.
The Australian Dive Marketplace was again welcomed by both participating stores and by manufacturers and distributors who all mentioned how good it was to have their stores on the show floor, especially as it enabled them to direct sales and traffic to their dealers. This space, also enables Australian dive stores to meet face-to-face prospective new customers and establish an immediate connection.
