Malaysia Dive Expo

MIDE 2014 is slated to take place from the 6-8 June at PWTC, Kuala Lumpur. This scuba diving expo has seen tremendous growth over the years with more exhibitors participating, many from around the Southeast Region and also as far as Australia.

This is also the 9th year for MIDE and divers from all over the country, some even from abroad make their way here to find out about the latest industry equipment and also information. 

Dive operators are also participating in offering a variety of Dive Trips around Malaysia and as far as Raja Ampat or Palau.

Most popular are the Bali dive sites and also from around Sabah Borneo. Some tourism boards have also participated in the previous expo, therefore, you can expect to see them here again for MIDE 2014.

Final Thoughts To MIDE

Honestly, this is the largest dive expo in Malaysia, and if you are a beginner or advanced scuba diver, you should be heading here.

There is much to see and learn, and even possibly buy as many of the items will be on sale at MIDE. As some scuba divers claim, wait for MIDE to get the best possible deals.
