PADI and Mares Visit Prodivers Kuredu01 Dec 2012
Padi and Mares have been on a safari boat this week touring around the Maldives. This has given them the opportunity to visit many of their partner dive schools and shops that operate throughout the country. This allowed them to promote their latest products and provide support to many of their customers.
Prodivers, a 5* PADI dive center with a long standing relationship with Mares was one of the dive centers where they stopped off. Jean Claude Monachon, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Market Development for PADI and Tomas Sobota, PADI Examiner joined Gerald Skrobanek, Mares President and Dieter Heinz, Mares International Diving Center Manager along with handful of other Mares staff in a visit to PD for a day, where they got a tour of the facilities, and a chance to meet many of the staff. This also gave everyone involved a chance to discuss the newest dive equipment on offer, and the types of support that is needed in running a large dive operation such as Prodivers, along with providing the opportunity to catch up with some old friends.
Of course all being avid divers they managed to squeeze in one or two dives along the way as well.
