What's been said about past OZTek events

"It was, in my opinion, the best OZTek to date and a sterling reflection on the diversity and success of the diving industry ... I would personally like to thank you for everything you have done to make this show such a resoundingly positive focal point for diving in Australia and for the high regard it has given the Australian Dive Community in the Global arena."

"What an amazing event. .... We were amazed at such a result - far exceeding our expectations. ... Your hard work was evident in the way the stands were organised, along with three and four presentations running simultaneously; all without a hitch. (Or if there were, they were not evident.)"

"In my professional life, I have the opportunity to participate in and attend conferences in a range of subjects in USA, Europe UK Asia China and here. OZTek was genuinely of world standard in pretty much every way. The speakers were better than all other conferences I have attended, and the venue was great."

"OZTek is looked upon as something very special and the place to be and rub shoulders and share adventures with other divers around the world. This is now the best conference for diving on earth and the only one of its kind."

Melinda Herndon

"My third OZTec, and as always it delivered. This is the premier tech diving conference in Oz. Fantastic speakers and presentations, there is always something to learn during this conference. Granted, it was the first time at a new venue so there were some minor technical difficulties but I'm sure these lessons learned will be applied and make the 2019 OZTec even better. And Major Kudos to the event coordinators for the work that was done to pull this conference off after losing the previous venue with practically no warning. The exhibitors area was significantly larger which may have caught some exhibitors a little off guard and the venue change may also have kept some away. But it is a much better exhibitors area layout than the previous venue. I'm looking forward to the 2019 Conference in this new venue!"
