Mark Evans - Go Diving Show ANZ & Scuba Diver Magazine

Mark Evans - Go Diving Show ANZ & Scuba Diver Magazine

Join me on the podcast as I sit down with Mark Evans, co-founder of Rork Media and Editorial Director of Scuba Diver Magazine. We delve into his fascinating career journey, intertwining scuba diving with journalism, his profound passion for the sport, and his commitment to delivering top-notch information to the global audience. Mark's love affair with diving began at the tender age of 10, and it has only deepened over the years.

In this episode, we explore Mark's hectic schedule and gain insights into the workings of Scuba Diver Magazine, as well as the exciting launch of the inaugural Go Diving Show ANZ ( , scheduled for this September at the Sydney Showground. It's at this point I would highlight that the show is FREE to enter and also has free parking! 

Mark's journey includes his tenure as the editor of PADI's Sport Diver UK magazine, which unfortunately came to an end in January 2017. Undeterred, Mark, along with colleague Ross Arnold, seized the opportunity to fill the gap in the market by founding Rork Media. Just a month later, Scuba Diver magazine emerged, offering readers quality content and expert insights.

As Editorial Director of Scuba Diver, Mark oversees three magazine editions: UK, North America, and Australia/New Zealand. But his ambition doesn't stop there. Recognizing the need for modernized in-person events, Mark and his team introduced the Go Diving Show in the UK. After three successful years, including a brief hiatus due to COVID-19, the UK show attracted over 10,000 attendees. Now, it's Australia's turn to experience the excitement.

The Go Diving Show boasts a stellar lineup of speakers across various stages, including the Main, Photo, Australia/New Zealand, Inspiration, and Tech stages. Attendees can indulge in interactive experiences like VR diving, try dives, encounters with Bruce the rodeo shark, mermaid sightings, and even catch a glimpse of a podcaster you may recognise.

Alongside these attractions, a diverse array of exhibitors, ranging from tourist boards to conservation organizations, will surround the stages, providing a comprehensive showcase of the diving world. Join us as we unravel the journey of Mark Evans and explore the vibrant world of diving journalism and events.
