Living up to its name Asia Dive Expo (ADEX), ADEX brings together and celebrates divers, marine life artists, conservationists and photographers from all around the world every year, especially those coming from the Australasia region!
Although the event is already in its 21st year, we are still constantly searching and looking out for more divers, marine life artists, conservationists and photographers from the Australasia region to be part of this exciting event, spreading out to as far as the USA!
From all these amazing divers who were or will be part of the event, ambassadors were chosen and nominated to represent ADEX in various categories, not forgetting that they must be from the Australasia region.
And here, we proudly present all our ADEX Ambassadors thus far!
