ADEX Asia Dive Expo is determined to raise awareness on the threats of plastic in the ocean, educating both divers and non-divers on the ways they can help save our ocean, backed up by China and international influencers and celebrities who forged together to reinforce on the importance of the conservation theme of ADEX Asia Dive Expo: Dedicated towards a Plastic-Free Ocean.
