Last year, in light of the unprecedented global situation, we took the opportunity to create a special event, with our best line up ever.  We used the Pheedloop Virtual Event Platform to host a weekend including 32 presentations on two virtual stages, networking opportunities, exhibitions, fun stuff for the young (including young at heart), awards, a quiz and the famous NAS raffle. 

The 2020 event was generously supported by Historic EnglandDiveMaster InsuranceMSDS MarineSub-Aqua AssociationGo Dive Scuba Store, and Maritime Archaeology Sea Trust

The 2020 conference event was also made possible with the grant support provided from the National Lottery Heritage Fund Covid19 Fund. #NationalLotteryHeritageFund. Thank you to players of the National Lottery #thankstoyou
