Last week was a big double event in Singapore with the Yacht Show taking place from the 8th of April and finished with the annual ADEX Dive Show from the 11-13th. Mike was able to attend both of these events last week and had a great and informative time. After speaking at the Asia Pacific Yachting Conference at One15 Marina with Andy Shorten of the Lighthouse Consultancy and Jimmy Blee of Asia Pacific Superyachts about Indonesia as a yachting destination, the rest of the week was filled with other informative talks as well as getting the chance to meet some great people from the yachting business in SE Asia and visit a few beautiful yachts as well.

After the Yacht Show it was time to visit ADEX, the annual scuba diving show that was held at the famous Marina Bay Convention Centre and organized by Cassandra Dragon and the team from Asian Diver/Scuba Diver Australasia. This was a fun event with a lot of familiar faces and great presentations from a lot of people in the photo and dive industry in the Asia Pacific. Although I was not speaking at this show, I had the opportunity to meet and catch up with a lot of people I have not seen in many years as well as enjoy some of the talks. I also attended the Wetpixel/ScubaCam party which was organized by Sanah Z of Scubacam and held at ME bar across from the Marina Bay which presented an awesome view.   Wyland of the Ocean Artists Society was also in attendance creating a large mural for the event.

It was great to meet many people I have not met before and see others who I haven’t seen in a long time! Hoping to visit again in 2015.

Here are a few photos of the people and sights of the week:
