Get yourselves ready for a surreal and fantastical setting: mermaids galore! ADEX Shenzhen will see the largest gathering of mermaids – ever! Officials from the Gushiness Book of Records will be in attendance to make this historic recording. It will be a celebratory atmosphere, made even more enjoyable by the lovely mermaids who are famous for being kind and chatty with those visitors who want to know more about what they do, what drives them, and the ocean realm that they so visibly represent and stand for. Get yourselves ready for tons of positivity – and so eye-catching performances from our mermaids and mermen.
ADEX is holding it’s very first Mermaid Festival at the 2017 Shenzhen International Dive & watersport Expo, from 8 to 10 September 2017. The festival will be held on September 9 in conjunction with Shenzhen Mermaid School, Guangzhou Mermaid School, and Hong Kong Mermaid School. Over 200 Mermaids will gather to celebrate this mythical creature that may just live in all of us.
Get excited for a whole line-up of exciting activities! Observe how the mermaids use their flukes and tails to gracefully glide through the Mermaid Pool, enjoy performances by the mermaids, where they will captivate the audience with their beauty in the Mermaid Tank. You can even get up close and personal with the mermaids at Mermaid Cove.
We would like to give special mention to Ocean Alliance and Mermaid-Alliance, our partners for this year’s Mermaid Festival. Ocean Alliance is an organisation that promotes the existing ocean conservation initiatives, while Mermaid-Alliance is a global organisation that promotes mermaids and freedivers. They plan to build state-of-the-art pool facilities for demonstration and interaction purposes.
Mermaid-Alliance will have four booths at the Shenzhen show, including a cinema screening of mesmerising underwater and freediving footage, mermaid hair, makeup, and body painting services, a display of mermaid silicone tails and accessories, and lastly, an ocean conservation booth.
The festival is organised by Dada Li, the owner and founder of the Dada Mermaid (Shenzhen) Ocean Culture Ltd. Company and the Co-organiser of the ADEX Shenzhen.
During the inaugural Mermaid Festival this year, ADEX will be hosting an exciting Mermaid Challenge!
On September 9 2017, mermaids from all over the world will gather to showcase their unique persona, presentation, and swimming skills to the panel of judges. It will be the first challenge of its kind in Asia.
A 40-foot dive tank will allow the Mermaids to display their natural connection with the ocean, and our panel of judges, both Mermaids and Tritons, will be the first to show everyone how it is done. Mermaid Alliance, who is sending representatives from around the world, will produce a video to be screened on the last day of ADEX China Shenzhen 2017, September 10. Make sure to drop by to cheer for your favourite mermaid!
