Baltic Tech Conference
We regret to inform, that on 05 July 2016 during common diving trip around the Oland Island our friend Dimitris Stavrakakis passed away.
Dima died of natural causes, it wasn't a diving accident.
He was a reliable friend and an authority for us.
Condolences for his wife, children, all relatives and friends.
The Baltictech Team
Baltictech 2015 conference starts this weekend! This year we have a record number of registered participants. There will be more than 500 people! Remember that you can buy a ticket for Baltictech 2015 on the day of the conference.
We have prepared an attraction for the participants of the conference. On Sunday, at around 15:00 there will be a possibility to explore the Polish Army Divers Training Center named after Commander Stanislaw Mielczarek in Oksywie, Gdynia. Divers Training center in Gdynia is the main center for dive training in the Polish Armed Forces. It prepares the divers to carry and protect the needs of the Polish Army related to the performance of underwater work on small and large depths. It also cooperates with the management authority of the Maritime Rescue MW in the scope of improvement, testing and performance of rescue equipment and diving.
- Polish citizenships - require ID card, entitling them to entrer the training center.
- Persons with other than Polish nationality - need to send their data: name, surname, date of birth, nationality and passport number.
We provide a free shuttle bus from the conference place back and forth.

In less than two months the seventh edition of the Baltictech international conference for technical divers will begin. On November 21-22 in Gdynia, Poland divers from all over the world will gather to listen to the experts’ lectures, participate in workshops and share their experiences.
The subject of this year's Baltictech will be highly diversified, which suggests that each conference participant will find something for itself. The names of a dozen speakers have already been confirmed, like eg.: Becky Kagan Schott, Steve Jones, Marek Kaminski, Paul Raymakers, Simon Mitchell, Adam Borzyszkowski Dominik Graczyk "Honzo", Cesare Balzi, Kamil Iwankiewicz, Thomas Żabierek, Phil Short, Benedict Hac, Thomas Michura, Radoslaw Sieniawski. The guests' list has not been finalized yet.
One of the most interesting speakers will be Simon Mitchell – an anesthesiologist specializing in diving medicine, a world authority in hyperbaric medicine, author of more than 100 articles about diving, widely published in the world literature.
Another one is Steve Jones – journalist and photographer in Ocean Geographic Society. For many years he has been developing techniques to capture wide-angle color images with only a small amount of natural light available at significant depths.
Tomasz Stachura, head of Baltictech: "With each edition the organizers try to raise the level of our conferences. That is also our goal this year. There are so many interesting topics that we would like to present and discuss, but we are limited by the time – two days of the conference. However, I believe, that participants will come to us to gain some new and valuable knowledge, and will leave enriched with the experience gained after discussions exchanged with divers from all over the world."
