Re: EuroTek.08 - UK Tek conference in November

Thanks for your reply, Carl and I are currently crunching all the numbers and figures, as you would understand looking at the venue we have hired (ICC Birmingham) and the fact that we have to fly in quality speakers from around the world, running an event as such is no cheap venture. We are taking a risk and digging into our own pockets and time. Perhaps the reason why we don’t have one here in the Northern Hemisphere.

All we want to do is break even and everyone leave thinking what a great show. We are looking towards the figures of about £22 for a day pass and £40 for a weekend pass. Behind the scenes EuroTek.08 is really taking shape but there are lots of hidden extras in running a conference that we are dealing with on a daily basis. The last TEK/IANTD show 8 years ago run by Kev Gurr was £18 for a day pass and the venue we have is a little more geared towards running an event like this. (See website Eurotek advanced diving conference).

We really are gearing this up towards an Oztek Style event, a good conference with good speakers. Both of us are just ordinary Tek divers trying to pull something decent off where everyone gets value for money. The evening gala dinner will have announcements and awards and some stuff we will keep for a surprise and numbers will be limited due to catering logistics.

We have out IT guys currently working on our online registration system, as soon as it is on line and tested we will have tickets for sale.

If this conference works we can expand for another year in the future and have unlimited numbers so those that don’t get tickets don’t loose out.

It looks very interesting - I'm certainly planning to be there.

Many thanks for taking the risk and time to put this together. I really do hope it is a success!

Doesn't sound totally unreasonable.... shame about being in Birmingham but hey- nothings perfect ;) At least I'm in the right country for an event for once!

Modesty will get you nowhere in life :)... seriously, sounds really good- this is one very ordinary diver who is looking forward to it.

Keep up the good work!

EuroTek.08 - Update

Since I made the original post things have been developing well. We have now got a team of conference professionals working with us EuroTek is growing bigger than the pair of us can handle.


Two more seriously interesting CCR Divers/speakers have come on board now which we are really excited about and I will post updates and bios about them on the EuroTek site in the next few days. Eurotek advanced diving conference Our list of speakers is so full now we have had to turn down offers of some big names in the field of scientific diving, so we have some great back up if anyone drops out. Most of these have said they will be coming anyway whether they are speakers or not, so there will be lots of knowledgeable people from the advanced diving world kicking about to talk to as well.

We will have a speaker schedule finalised very soon so if people are thinking of attending for just one day they can see who’s presenting on which day and make their choice. None of the presentations and workshops will be repeated, by working it this way we can get more speakers over the weekend and a wider range of topics for delegates to listen to or attend. All our speakers will be at the Gala evening dinner spread across different tables to socialize with everyone.

For the interest of wreck divers the weekend falls over a spring tide, they are actually Equinox spring tides, something we had actually thought of in advance because we are divers like everyone else!

We will make tickets available as soon as we can, if this falls before Sept 1st we will make a post to let everyone know so those who are planning on going to EuroTek don’t miss out.

The EuroTek website can be found at Eurotek advanced diving conference
