Sport Diver Awards 2016
Don’t miss the party of the year! On 22 October, over 300 movers and shakers from the diving industry will descend on the National Motorcycle Museum - and you are invited
The annual Sport Diver Awards has become the must-attend party of the diving year, and last year it grew massively, with a lavish event in one of the main rooms in the National Motorcycle Museum near the Birmingham NEC.
Timed to coincide with the Dive 2016 show, the evening is hosted by diving celebrities, authors, TV presenters and adventurers Monty Halls and Andy Torbet, who will be regaling us with tales from their respective trips to exotic Wakatobi in Indonesia with family in tow, and the shipwreck of the Britannic deep on the bottom of the Aegean Sea.
The highlight of the event is the presentation of the prestigious awards themselves, and this year voting has been closer than ever. Who will win the coveted trophies this year? You’ll have to be at the event to find out first-hand.
Rounding out the party, this year we have a duelling piano set-up, with accompanying drummer and sax player, so prepare for some interactive fun and games, with singing along actively encouraged. Requests are to be expected, so make a mental note of your fave tunes for then. There is a full bar at the back of the venue, so you can ensure you are suitably lubricated by that point!
The evening, which features a wide-ranging and tasty buffet and is sponsored by Wakatobi Dive Resort and liveaboards.com, will also see the culmination of the Project AWARE silent auction, with a stunning array of goodies on offer - and all for a great cause.
