DEEP Indonesia is Indonesia’s first Diving, Adventure Travel & Watersports expo. The growth of the diving and water sports industry in Indonesia demonstrates a noticeable improvement in people’s lifestyles. This has also been observed in other sports industries across the country. Despite being a new player in sports industries, stability in Indonesia’s economy has increased people’s income allowing them to participate more and more in sports and healthy living activities. And with a population of 220 million people- which is the equivalent of the rest of South East Asia combined- the potential growth is enormous.
