EUROTEK is an advanced and technical diving conference and exhibition that is happening on the 16th and 17th October at the ICC, Birmingham, UK.
It was originally conceived by Leigh Bishop, Roz Lunn and Carl Spencer. Carl tragically died on the Britannic in May 2009. Leigh and Roz have continued to run EUROTEK and the team was augmented by Mark Dixon and Crispin Brake in 2010.
Here are some extracts from the press release that Roz Lunn forwarded to me:
‘Must have’ Tickets are now on sale for the bi-annual Advanced and Technical Diving event – EUROTEK.2010. Held on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th October in Halls 9, 10 and 11 at the International Convention Centre, Broad Street, Birmingham; EUROTEK has proved to be popular with a plethora of divers.
We’ve got a mouth-watering list of 26 speakers thanks to Co-Organiser Leigh Bishop’s hard work. I’m thrilled to say we’ve successfully secured such luminaries as cave explorer Jill Heinerth, underwater cinematographer Carl Douglas, Algorithm Author Bruce Wienke (sponsored by Suunto), and tech legend Tom Mount (sponsored by IANTD). In addition the ever charming and popular Dr Simon Mitchell will be talking again. At 2008 his presentations were packed out, and not everyone got to hear him speak, hence we’ve invited him back to EUROTEK.2010. Simon’s got the knack of being able to explain in quite simple terms complex physiological information to divers, whilst at the same time keeping the medics engaged. No wonder it was standing room only in his talks!
For further information about EUROTEK or to book your ticket, simply log onto www.eurotek.uk.com A pre-booked One Day Pass comes in at £38.19, a Weekend Pass is £70.50, whilst the Gala Award Dinner is £52.88 per head. Tickets may be available on the door if we’ve not sold out at £43 and £75 for a Day / Weekend Pass respectively.
So if you are the Birmingham area in mid-October, it should be well worth a visit. Unfortunately I’ll miss it – I’ll be in the UK just beforehand, but by mid-October I’ll either be back in Hong Kong, or heading down to NZ.
Anyway get the full details from their website – www.eurotek.uk.com.
