SCUBA Show 2014, America’s largest consumer and dive expo will take place June 7-8, 2014 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California. This is the 27th year of this popular event. The show will have 76,000 square feet of more than 300 exhibits with new and revolutionary dive gear, worldwide travel destinations (many offering show discounts), dozens of seminars by the industry’s leading dive professionals. Over $25,000 in door prizes will be given away in scheduled drawings throughout the two days, while several exhibitors will also offer free drawings for valuable prizes.
Highlighting the exhibit hall will be artist Doreen Hann who will be directing community paintings of ocean art on individual-tiled canvases with audience participation (a favorite of kids). The art will be auctioned or sold with the proceeds going to the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Seminar topics will include all aspects of fascinating marine life, California diving, dive travel, dive medicine, shipwrecks, exploration, workshops, underwater photography and video, and much more.
