We bring you the latest news that OZTek2017 has moved to incorporate its growing amount of speakers and exhibitors.

Press Release

OZTek again breaks new ground with a new home, more exhibitors and more speakers than ever before. With the relocation to the fantastic new exhibition centre at the International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour (ICC Sydney), OZTek cements itself as the premier event for all things diving related.

Technical, photographic and advanced diving topics will be presented along with the industry’s best suppliers exhibiting the latest in diving equipment, travel and training. The OZTek conference and exhibition is the “must see” event in 2017.


The show will open on March 18/19, 2017 in Hall 1, ICC Exhibition Centre Darling Harbour. Our custom-built main theatre is located right on the exhibition floor, along with the workshop areas, and these, coupled with the additional conference rooms directly above, ensure plenty of interaction between attendees and exhibitors.

Located at the heart of Sydney’s Darling Harbour and entertainment area, our new address is easier to find, easier to get to by car or public transport, with the new Goods Line walk taking you on a 10-minute scenic walk from the ICC directly to Central station, without crossing a road! Check out more information on the venue here:


After two years of complete re-design and re-build, the ICC proudly opens its doors in late December, making OZTek one of the first premier events held at the new facility. For more information about this superb location, visit
