It is, of course, impossible to walk the halls of DEMA without being stopped every few meters. I snapped photos of some of the brief encounters and wish I could dedicate an entire entry to each of these wonderful people!
Special thanks to Willy Volk of Divester.com for coming to DEMA and providing sister coverage along with Wetpixel. Thanks also to Drew Wong for his fantastic video coverage, and to Paul Ng and Lena Goh for helping to gather information. Jason and Wendy Heller (DivePhotoGuide) served as great company for the few minutes we had each day to socialize without consequences.
For more coverage of DEMA 2006, please see the DEMA coverage index.
