Tradeshow, Seminars, And Jumps Planned
Skydiving gear manufacturers from around the world are
organizing the first ever Skydive Expo, to be held March 11-14,
2010 at DeLand Municipal Airport (KDED) northeast of Orlando, FL.
Skydive Expo is a 4-day multi-part event focusing on educational
seminars, a skydiving equipment showcase, and gear tests during
The focus of the event will be the Gear Expo, a tradeshow
featuring equipment manufacturers at booths to answer questions and
show their wares. Daily seminars are planned on a range of
topics intended to help skydivers learn more about their gear.
The event will be running concurrently with US Parachuting
Association's Safety Day. The annual event is used to promote
safety programs, inform jumpers of new developments, and refresh
them on procedures before the busy summer season.
In addition to seminars, load organizers will on-hand be at
Skydive DeLand, putting together small, low-key, pick-up-style
jumps throughout the event.
Non-skydivers are invited and welcome to attend.
Organizers say anyone interested in aviation will find lots to see
and learn about in addition to a convention full of people
with similar interests. Many skydivers are also private pilots,
commercial pilots and participate in other aerial sports, such as
BASE jumping, paragliding, hang gliding and more.
