DEMA Show 2021: In Vegas, I learned to TikTok!


Thank you to DEMA (Diving Equipment & Marketing Association) for including me as media for the 2021 conference in Vegas. It was great to be back together IN PERSON!! Thank you to Resorts World Las Vegas for my conference stay!

The annual DEMA Show is the largest trade-only event in the world for companies doing business in the scuba diving, ocean water sports and adventure/dive travel industries. It attracts hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of dive and travel industry professionals from around the world each year.

At the show, I started a social media challenge of 5 videos a day for 30 days. Thank you to everyone for being in my new videos! It was so much fun to see everyone in person and talk scuba!

I did my first TikTok dance in the Beqa Lagoon Booth with Bamba!

My first job in travel was at CLUB MED! It was great to learn about what they are doing NOW!

Check out my TikTok channel as well as Instagram Reels to see the 15 videos we made at the show about diving in Bonaire, Fiji, Indonesia, Cayman islands, a mini-series about Lionfish, Tahiti, Mexico and Antarctica!
