About Dive Ireland 2006
The first ever all-Ireland dive conference due to take place in Belfast on the 25/26 February 2006.

Venue: Ramada Hotel, Shaw's Bridge, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Tickets are just £6 for the full weekend when bought online!

The aim of this 2-day conference is to bring together divers from all diving agencies (CFT, BSAC, PADI, SAA, TDI, IANTD) to promote scuba diving in Ireland as a sport for everyone, irrespective of qualification or geographical location.

The conference aims to provide a list of high profile speakers and practical workshops that will cater for a diverse range of diver interests such as photography; wreck diving; overseas diving; mixed gas and technical diving.

Present at the conference, together for the first time, will be two of the largest recreational diver training agencies in Ireland - the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) and the Irish Underwater Council (CFT). Also present will be NIFSAC (Northern Ireland Federation of Sub-Aqua Clubs) who are the governing body of the sport in Northern Ireland.

The BSAC and CFT will use the conference as a platform to update and inform their members about recent developments, including technical and training changes, in their respective organisations and any impact these may have on their local branches. CFT will also host their annual conference and delegate meetings while BSAC will host their first regional meeting with the newly appointed regional coach. In addition a trade area will provide opportunities for purchasing that must-have new equipment or checking out the top holiday destinations.

Such an event, involving divers from all corners of Ireland, will serve to raise awareness about diving as a sport in Ireland and inject a much needed boost of publicity into the area.

An evening social event should ensure that this 2-day conference is one not to be missed!!

*Tickets purchased on the door are £10.
