Everyone ready and in great mood for DEMA Show 2023

The DEMA Show 2023 floor is a diver’s paradise, boasting 600+ prominent dive equipment manufacturers, travel hotspots, clothing wholesalers, and service providers. This product exhibition immerses you in the newest innovations and gear that have just hit the market. The next few days will bring the answer to the question of how successful this year’s event in New Orleans will be. However, we can already say that on the organizational side, as well as on the part of visitors to the fairgrounds, no one was disappointed!

This event is bursting with product debuts, live demonstrations, and experiences from various destinations.

It seems that this year’s edition held in New Orleans, after all the fatal years is coming back on track.

DEMA is terrific this year we are doing 10,000 to 20,000 steps a day across the convention center. It’s a busy place this year definitely more busy than last year. DEMA would be nothing without its legendary parties, Monday was reserved for the PADI, Tuesday DAN, and TDI party is going to be held on Wednesday, also Deeper Blue is holding its party – the tickets sold out in 9 minutes! It’s New Orleans of course.

We also had an RF4.1 meeting with manufacturers and training agencies with 45 attendees we had a very good discussion. Working together as a community to implement some of the RF4 consensus statements and recommendations, states Michael Menduno


The DEMA Show, though hosted in the USA, boasts a significant presence from European manufacturers. Notably, several brands from Poland have made a mark at the event, including industry leaders like Seacraft, SANTI Diving, Xdeep, Seal, and Avatar.

The DEMA Show, founded in 1979, has firmly established itself as one of the most significant and influential trade fairs globally for the diving, marine sports, and adventure industry. Produced by DEMA (The Diving Equipment & Marketing Association), this annual event is the largest trade-only gathering worldwide for companies operating in the scuba diving and ocean water sports sectors.

Over the years, the DEMA Show has been held at two locations, including Orlando, Florida, and Las Vegas, Nevada. The event has been a cornerstone for the dive industry for over four decades, providing an unparalleled learning opportunity with numerous in-person and online seminars and educational sessions.

The DEMA Show has also been a platform for honoring legends in the industry, such as Jacques-Yves Cousteau, who was recognized for his contributions to exploration and invention in 1989.
