The Value of Pre-Planning and Pre-Marketing for DEMA Show
DEMA Show offers unparalleled opportunities for dive businesses to showcase their products and services, engage with potential customers, and build meaningful connections. However, effective pre-planning and pre-marketing is the key to maximizing the success of participating in DEMA Show.
Schedule a Free, Private Prop 65 Attorney Meeting at DEMA Show
Private meetings with an attorney that specializes in Prop 65 issues are available in 20-minute segments at DEMA Show 2023. 

Litigation and fines from California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (referred to as “Prop 65”) have already impacted many diving manufacturers and retailers – are you next?

As the 5th largest economy in the world, a vast majority of diving products can end up in the stream of commerce in California where they will be subject to Prop 65. This law reaches far beyond California and can affect any diving equipment manufacturer anywhere (even internationally) as well as any entity in the chain of manufacturing and distribution including retailers or resorts selling the product.

Funded by the DEMA Manufacturing Committee and free to DEMA Show attendees and exhibitors, this is a unique opportunity to schedule a one-on-one meeting with an attorney that specializes in Prop 65 issues. Private meetings are available in 20-minute segments.  

These free 20-minute meetings are available on a first-come, first-served basis only to DEMA Show 2023 registered attendees and exhibitors. Register now to secure your private meeting.

Beware of Fraudulent Housing and Attendee List Solicitations
Sham housing companies are actively approaching DEMA exhibitors and attendees with fraudulent offerings. Please don't fall prey to these imposters!

These companies are in no way affiliated with DEMA Show, or our official hotel block. They troll the internet and association websites looking for annual events and then gain access to email addresses for direct contact or to draw attendees to their websites posing as a sanctioned provider. Do not give them your credit card information!

If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a service or room reservation for DEMA Show 2023, or if they represent themselves as "DEMA's official housing providers or contractors," please get as much information as you can, then contact DEMA Show at [email protected].
