ADEX Comes to Japan in October 2024
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 2, 2024 @ 01:00 AM (EST)

Alongside the latest edition of ADEX Beijing, the organizers of “Asia’s largest and longest-running dive exhibition” have officially announced the inaugural ADEX Japan—or ADEJ for short. The show, which will take place in Tokyo in October, is jointly hosted by Japanese newspaper The Asahi Shimbun and Underwater360, the umbrella group that includes the ADEX brand and magazines Asian Diver and Scuba Diver.

Like other ADEX dive shows, visitors can expect booths packed with the best brands in the diving and dive travel industries, as well as stages featuring engaging presentations and panel discussions. Adding something a little different is the GOOD LIFE Fair, which will run alongside ADEX Japan. The fair is billed as “Japan’s largest consumer exhibition on daily life enrichment and sustainability.”

ADEX Japan will be held at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center (Tokyo Big Sight) in Ariake, Tokyo, from October 25th to 27th, 2024. Check out the press release below and head over to www.adex.asia to find out more and purchase tickets.


Asia’s largest diving exhibition “ASIA DIVE EXPO” held for the first time in Japan

Asia Dive Expo (ADEX), renowned as Asia’s largest and longest-running dive exhibition, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2024 with an expansion into Japan. For the first time, the celebration of the ocean and diving, “ASIA DIVE EXPO JAPAN (ADEJ),” is scheduled to be held at Tokyo Big Sight from October 25th to 27th, 2024.

Established in 1995, Asia Dive Expo has transformed into a comprehensive marine event attracting divers, non-divers, students, and families alike. Over the years, ADEX has dedicated each edition to addressing critical marine issues, such as climate change and plastic pollution, while advocating for marine conservation and biodiversity. Based in Singapore and spearheaded by Asian Geographic, Asia Dive Expo is Asia’s leading dive consumer and trade expo, with international and industry recognition.

Jointly hosted by The Asahi Shimbun and Underwater360, ASIA DIVE EXPO JAPAN promises to enchant divers, dive operators, and marine enthusiasts, offering a platform to share ideas, explore solutions and champion marine environmental protection.

ASIA DIVE EXPO JAPAN embodies the concept of a “festival of the sea and diving,” offering attendees the opportunity to engage with diving-related products, services, and interactive displays. The event will feature expert stage presentations, educational workshops, and appearances by renowned divers, celebrities, and academic experts, addressing vital topics related to the ocean and the dive industry.

The Asahi Shimbun, one of Japan’s premier newspapers, serves as the co-organizer for ASIA DIVE EXPO JAPAN. Concurrently, the GOOD LIFE Fair, Japan’s largest consumer exhibition on daily life enrichment and sustainability, will enhance the event’s appeal, attracting visitors with a keen interest in diving and marine conservation.

“We want the Japan diving community to grow,” remarked John Thet, CEO, ADEX. “In the past, Japanese divers were seen all over the world, but now we see fewer Japanese divers traveling to different locations. ADEX’s strength is to educate and raise awareness for the ocean, divers, and potential divers in Japan. Join us for this opportunity to be part of the dive community and contribute to the growth of ocean awareness in Japan.”
