The dive industry is coming together at the 31st annual DEMA Awards Party taking place November 15, 2019 to honor the 2019 Reaching Out Award recipients and to reveal this year’s recipient of the Wave Makers Award. Join us at this year’s 80’s inspired evening which will take place at Hard Rock Live Orlando.  Get ready for a night full of acid washed jeans and teased hair as we celebrate with friends, business associates, and industry peers! Mark your calendar for an 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.
