Welcome to tekDIVE Europe
Here you can find all the practical information about the congress for technical diving that we organise every two years.
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 fifth edition will take place on 19 & 20 oktober 2019 in Edegem (near Antwerp).
There are 2 rooms available (a big room for 200 participants and a small room for 60 participants). Over the years, we invited many big names who gave very memorable lectures, often illustrated with unique photo and film material. Just to name a few : Martyn Farr (UK), Rod Mc Donald (Schotland), Michael Barnette (USA), Curt Bowen (USA), Pim Van Der Horst (Netherlands), Drazen Goricki (Croatia), Aldo Ferruci (Italy), Richard Lundgren (Norway), Barry Mc Gill (Ireland), Don Shirley (USA), Evan Kovacs (USA), Sebastian Popek (Poland), Sabine Kerkau (Switzerland), Severine Barr (Germany), Steve Sanders (Schotland), Dr Jacek Kot (Poland), Stewie Andrews (Ireland), Immi Wallin (Finland), Saami Pakarinen (Finland), Peter Kubicka (Slovakije) and many many others. Also many big names of the Belgian diving community -people like Erik Wouters, Peter Brandt and Steven Galicia- have supported our event and continue to do so.
Tekdive is an event for everyone who is passionate about technical and adventurous diving, regardless of your organisation, club, certification or diving experience.

WDT also organises the "Wreck & Tek Events" and has published three very well received diving books :

The first one was recently translated in English and published as 'Diving for Treasures' by Whittles Publishing from Scotland.
