Philippine International Dive Expo (PHIDEX) 2022 Kicks Off at SMX!
On its third year, PHIDEX 2022 amplifies the importance of conservation, community, and convergence in the diving industry with the theme “Back into the Blue: One with the Sea”.
PHIDEX 2022 sends out the strong message that the Philippines is ready to welcome dive tourists from all over the globe, gathering local and international dive industry experts, dive tour operators, and partner businesses to share their ideas and experiences.
Opening the Expo officially are key guests (from left) DOT Office of Product and Market Development (OPMD) Product Monitoring and Evaluation Division (PMED) OIC-Division Chief Rowena Sorioso; Philippine Airlines President and COO Capt. Stanley K. Ng; OIC-Undersecretary for Tourism Regulation, Coordination and Resource Generation Shalimar Tamano; Bohol Governor Aris Aumentado; and DOT-OPMD Director Paulo Benito S. Tugbang.
PHIDEX is the only dive show in the world that combines in one event a Dive Travel Exchange (TRAVEX), a business-to-business (B2B) meeting program for local and international dive operators, dive conference and seminars, and familiarization tours to top and emerging Philippine dive destinations. Exhibition booths will also showcase dive resorts and centers in different destinations, as well as top-rated dive gear and equipment.
