There are many parties and dinners during the DEMA Show, one of the coolest has got to be the NOGI Dinner. This is a fascinating evening because you get to rub shoulders with some distinguished scientists, explorers, environmentals and artists who have done some remarkable things, yet they are not always household names in scuba diving.
The AUAS has stated it is not possible to gurantee a ticket on the night, hence they suggest you book a ticket now.
The NOGI Awards
The NOGI Awards are acknowledged as the oldest and most prestigious in the diving industry, yet they are probably the least well known. They are given to a select group of divers and undersea visionaries who rank at the top of their fields in arts, science, sports / education, environment, and distinguished service.
