The SCUBA Show, which took place June 21-22 at the Long Beach Convention Center, drew record crowds to the event. The show had the largest two-day turnout in the history of the show and largest single day attendance ever. Saturday attendance was 6,134, and Sunday attendance was 5,061. The show drew its largest Saturday and Sunday numbers in the 21-year history of the show.

Show Producer Dale Sheckler was pleased with the show turnout. “I couldn’t be happier about the way the show went this year. We had a solid crowd both days, and I know both exhibitors and attendees were happy. I think we did a great job in bringing them together.”

The SCUBA Show also sold out exhibit space well in advance. “We’ve already begun looking towards next year and how we are going to top ourselves,” said Sheckler. “We have some interesting things in the works that are going to once again please both exhibitors and attendees.”
