    Get your ticket before you go. Go to the DEMA website and register. Long way to travel to be turned away at the door.

    No person gets turned away at the door.

    You have the money, you get in.

    A dive master, a dive store employee, press, dive rep, many other categories will
    get you in once you put the money down.

    It is wise, as noted, to register before hand.

    Almost anyone will qualify as a dive "pro" with little effort.

    People can always game the system. But the targeted audience is for people working in the dive industry.

    Yes, of course, the target audience is, as you noted, people working in the dive industry.

    I was at the first DEMA show in Miami and have been to most since.

    At least 20-25% or more, of people walking the floor are friends of dive store owners, other
    hangers on, etc.

    It does not mean that the DEMA show is not a good place for the Dive business to connect.

    Anyone can get in, if they want.
