The start of the exhibition is less than four months away. We share the latest news from the organizing committee, which, despite lockdowns and covid storms, is continuously working on preparing the world's best water exhibition (well, in Russia and Eastern Europe we are definitely the biggest and most beautiful :) We are making deal with exhibitors (80% of the area has already been sold), selecting speakers and films for the cultural program, improving the food court and auditorium (there will be a 6x9 meter LCD screen!), launching advertising and simultaneously solving hundreds of other tasks to please the underwater and surface community in February.
1. Moscow, Gostiny Dvor, February 17-20
All our news begins with this block, because there are still fellows who escape from any information flows. We know, there are only a few of them, but they should also be in the right place and at the right time. Now we are going back to the classic February dates again. And we stay in former place — Gostiny Dvor, the best exhibition complex a stone's throw from the Kremlin with a huge glass atrium and a unique historical atmosphere of the XVIII century.
2. Tickets and discounts
On November 15, ticket sales will start. No changes: standard ticket is for 1 person, and family ticket — for the whole family members at once. A husband and wife, their children (if their age is less than 18), grandparents — all of them can get to the exhibition on a family ticket. Civil marriage does not give the right to buy a family ticket, but it is a great reason to register your marriage officially :)
