Following a stellar track record, ADEX, or Asia Dive Expo, has received one of the most prestigious awards in the industry – Best Exhibition Organiser under the Experience Excellence (MICE) category at the Singapore Tourism Awards 2018. The Singapore Tourism Awards show brings together Singapore’s tourism sector to celebrate individuals and organisations that best deliver exceptional experiences and achieve enterprise excellence. Twenty-nine individuals and organisations were recognised at the prestigious award ceremony held at Fairmont Singapore in May 2018, which was graced by the President of Singapore, Halimah Yacob.
Approaching its silver jubilee, ADEX has brought divers together for the past 24 years and evolved beyond its origins as a dive show – it is now one of Asia’s leaders in the fight for the ocean. The dive expo, originating in Singapore, serves as a platform for divers to congregate and share their underwater experiences, but more importantly, it provides a conducive environment for ocean lovers to learn about how they can protect marine life. Furthermore, ADEX provides an avenue for businesses and organisations – dive operators, equipment manufacturers, and national tourism boards – to spread the message of responsible stewardship of the ocean.
