CDEX 2008 report

Post Number:#1  Postby Scuba Symphony » Sun Sep 28, 2008 4:14 pm

The China Diving Exhibiton-  CDEX was held for the 2nd time in Shanghai from 19-21 Sept 2008 at the Shanghai East Asia Exhibition Hall, after the initial run last year in Beijing.

All the major dive gear manufacturer brands were there with huge booths and grand displays.


Very few visitors this year ( exact number to be announced ), air-conditioning was switched off at 1pm and quite a few exhibitors started to pack very soon thereafter! Most visitors were expats working and living in China. A very shocking experience for us who are used to much higher exhibition standards ie ADEX,MIDE, DEEP, DEMA,etc


Anyway, here are shots taken from there:

As of today, much to our despair and exactly 10 days afdter CDEX, the organizers still refuses to reveal the actual visitor number!

I think the lack of publicity is the major let down of this show ...
if u are going to be dumb, u better be tough ....
