PHIDEX Returns to SMX Convention Center this August 2022
The Philippines is known for its amazing dive spots–Anilao in Batangas; Panglao, in Bohol; Moalboal in Cebu, Coron in Palawan, Sipalay in Negros Occidental; Donsol in Sorsogon; and Ticao Island in Masbate. So to further promote these tourist destinations, the Department of Tourism (DOT) will be hosting the Philippine International Dive Expo (PHIDEX), the country’s largest platform for the diving community, at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City on August 19-21, 2022.

According to the agency, it seeks to continue the narrative of conservation, community, and convergence within the diving community through the theme “Back into the Blue: One with the Sea.”
The expo will also showcase the country’s readiness to welcome dive tourists from all over the globe, gathering local and international dive experts, dive tour operators, and partner dive businesses to share their ideas and experiences.
Through conferences, participants will get an opportunity to learn about new dive destinations developed during the pandemic, product updates from key dive destinations, as well as the latest underwater photography gear showcases. International dive operators will also get to inspect and assess the best and up-and-coming dive destinations such as Anilao, Bohol, Camiguin, Dumaguete, Malapascua, and Puerto Galera through familiarization tours.
At least 100 local and international dive buyers and media from the Philippines, United States, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Korea, Japan, Thailand and Singapore, are expected to attend the PHIDEX.
