On this page you can find all the practical information about the congress for technical diving that we organize every two years.
Tekdive is an event for everyone who is passionate about technical and adventurous diving, regardless of your organisation, club, certification or diving experience.
Tekdive Europe was organised the first time in 2011 by the technical divers of the infamous “Wreck Dive team”. At this first edition , we have welcomed more than 350 attendees! Edition after edition the congress was growing. The congress is now one of the main technical diving events in Europe. In 2017 we had about 40 exhibitors, about 20 international speakers and different workshops.
The sixt edition will take place on 23 & 24 October 2021 in Edegem (near Antwerp).
