Day two of ADEX China was a busy affair. Following the success of the show on Friday, Saturday was set to be even bigger. Once again, the star-studded line up of speakers and incredible products on show from exhibitors drew in the crowd.
Josie Yang kicked off the day with her presentation on diving with the giants while working for LAMAVE. Straight after, Tillis showed the latest on offer from the Maldives Cruiser. Freediver Jessea Lu explained her journey into, and why she loves, freediving, and her talk was followed by Potti Lau who offloaded her tips and techniques to increase your breath-hold endurance. Both Todd Essick and Yorko Summer held down a huge main stage crowd as they exhibited their work. Shortly after, actress Lee Yoon-Mi and Y.Zin Kim talked about the importance of the ocean environment.
Pepe Arcos showcased his artistic film, Pressure, which follows a record-holding freediver as he attempts to push the limits by breaking a freediving world record, to a full up audience. Amos Nachoum wowed the crowd with an ever-impressive portfolio of the big animals few ever get the chance to witness, let alone photograph. Suunto revealed their latest products, before once again the lucky draw saw many visitors go away with top-prizes.
Once again the Ocean Zone proved a crowd hot-spot. Speakers, from Imran Ahmad to Tim Ho, addressed large audiences. Lynn Wu let the crowd in on her underwater macro world, and William Tan presented the sub-aqua realm of Raja Ampat. Jim Chen offloaded handy tips and techniques for aspiring photographers to work on their “photographer’s eye”. John Fang closed the zone with his talk on challenging the one-hundred metre dream, using an open circuit rebreather.
Every year ADEX grows, through great speakers and top exhibitors attracting information-hungry crowds who are mad about the dive industry. Day two was a complete success, now we look toward tomorrow – the closing of the show – to complete what has been an exciting event so far.
