Lough Derg Sub Aqua Club is hosting Ireland’s annual scuba diving show – Dive Ireland International Expo – in Nenagh in 2019.


This is a major event that will take place over two days, Saturday and Sunday, March 2nd and 3rd, at the Abbey Court Hotel. It is expected that as many as 1,500 people will attend over the weekend.


The ‘Dive Show’, as it is commonly known, will feature trade stands from scuba diving and related businesses from all over Ireland and the UK. There will also be an array of speakers delivering talks on diving, the environment, wildlife and similar themes that will be of interest to a great many people.


We would like to invite you to come aboard as a sponsor of this national event. Sponsorship options include:


  • Main sponsor: Promote your business as the main sponsor of the 2019 Dive Show. This would also provide you with the opportunity to have your business logo displayed at all activities and events attended by Lough Derg Sub Aqua Club over the next two years. There would be an option to renew sponsorship on an annual basis thereafter, if so desired.


  • Associate sponsor: Support the 2019 Dive Show as an associate sponsor by giving whatever you can towards facilitating this national event in Nenagh. All sponsors will be credited in print media and social media platforms promoting the Dive Show, as well as a special booklet that will be published in association with the event.


  • Sponsor a room: Sponsor one of the speaker rooms or exhibition areas at the event.

About Lough Derg Sub Aqua Club

Lough Derg Sub Aqua Club was founded in 1992 and is currently comprised of around 30 members. The club provides a completely voluntary search & recovery service, both to the local area and on a regional and national basis.


This service is becoming increasingly busy, with a significant level of callouts over recent years. Among the more high-profile operations involving our S&R divers was the search in Mayo last year for the missing crewmembers of Irish Coast Guard helicopter R116.


Lough Derg Sub Aqua Club also organises water clean-ups at lakeside amenity areas, such as Dromineer and Garrykennedy. Our divers regularly attend training exercises involving emergency services, voluntary bodies and other sub aqua clubs around the country.
