Malaysia International Dive Expo Photos

MIDE Malaysia

These Malaysia International Dive Expo photos taken during the event which was held from 5 to 7 July, 2013 at the PWTC in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The diving event also saw many new industry players take part while international companies and even tourism boards participated for the first time.

Known commonly as MIDE, thousands of divers from around Malaysia are seen here where most are buying or upgrading dive equipment while others are booking dive packages or signing up for dive courses.

There are also a number of international participants and visitor who make their way to the dive exhibition, which is touted to be the biggest in Malaysia.

As an avid diver myself, I make it a point to check out MIDE every year to keep up to date with the diving technology, products and even destinations.

One of the top attractions this year was Raja Ampat in Indonesia while exotic places in the Philippines were gaining popularity.

With the connectivity of many budget airlines around the region, diving is now more affordable compared to 10 years ago. 

Even dive equipment has taken a twist where conventional BCD jackets are now a thing of the past. Brands like Hollis and OxyCheq have entered a new trend in the market with their new innovative designs that come in simple back plate style that are easily stored.

OxyCheq however, comes in small and large sizes and in various interesting colors that are very good for divers. It is easy to identify divers when in the water with the colored BCDs.

These were seen sold by authorized distributor Scubaholics Anonymous (Skoobaholik) who were seen really busy as many divers were captivated by the striking colors and sizes.

Other interesting features at MIDE 2013 were the many new dive destinations, live on boards (LOBs) and also dive computers. One that stole my attention was Liquivision Dive Computer with colored LCD displays.

Speaking to the dealer, these dive computers are pretty good for new divers where the colors for depth and air can be adjusted for easy identification.

Overall, MIDE 2013 was very interesting and I am sure many divers and would-be divers got what they needed during this diving expo here in Malaysia. The event takes place in the first half of the year in Malaysia.
