OZTek Welcomes Blancpain

OZTek2019 is proud to announce Blancpain as a major partner and sponsor of the Gombessa Theatre within the OZTek2019 Advanced Diving Conference.

Exploration and preservation of the world’s oceans is core to Blancpain. With its 66-year legacy of the Fifty Fathoms diving watch, Blancpain has become close to the explorers, photographers, scientists, and environmentalists who treasure this precious resource. With that affinity has come a determination to support important activities and initiatives dedicated to the oceans. 

For the past several years, the Blancpain Ocean Commitment (BOC) has been manifest through its support to oceanographic initiatives and partnerships with leading organisations, such as the Pristine Seas expeditions, Laurent Ballesta’s Gombessa project, the World Ocean Initiative organised by The Economist’s, and the World Oceans Day which takes place every year at the United Nations' headquarters in New York.
