The annual Our World Underwater dive show in Chicago took place last Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Rosemont, Illinois, about 20 miles from downtown Chicago. The show featured more than 130 exhibitors including dive manufacturers, travel destinations, training organizations, and more. It also featured more than 90 presentations and seminars during the three day show, which was open to the public.
Not too many Californians have the opportunity to attend, so I traveled to chilly Rosemont to check out the show, represent California Diver Magazine, and support our advertisers who were attending the show. It was conveniently held at the Stephens Convention center, just a few miles from Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Here’s a quick look at the show, some of the people we stopped by to see, and a few of the attendees we visited with.
The Our World Underwater show also takes place in Texas on January 23-24 and in Phoenix December 5-6. For more information on the show, please click here.
