The Dive Industry will come together at the 30th annual DEMA Award’s Party, taking place on November 16, 2018, to honor 2018 Reaching Out Award recipients, Ernie Brooks and Margo Peyton, and to reveal this year’s recipient of the Wave Makers Award. Join us at this year’s Black & White inspired evening which will take place in the Main Ballroom at the Las Vegas Westgate Resort.  Get ready to celebrate the night in your favorite black and/or white party attire with all your friends, business associates, and industry peers! Mark your calendar for an unforgettable evening of entertainment and celebration!

First presented in 1989, the Reaching Out Award honors leaders in the diving community whose significant contributions to the sport have elevated the industry on all levels. Areas of contribution have included equipment design, exploration, photography, publishing, retailing, science, training, travel and water safety. This year’s recipients will be joining an extraordinary list of distinguished past Honorees.

The Wave Makers Award was first introduced in 2017 and aims to recognize professionals who have been working in the industry for five years or less and have made a significant contribution to the industry during that time. The Wave Makers Award encourages the Industry to support a culture that fosters innovative thinking and encourages engagement with the association and industry by new professionals.
