Diving education professionals from across the region who are members of the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) gathered in Bali and nearby Gili Trawangan September 14-18, 2009.
The world's leading scuba diving training organization, PADI has been existence for more than 40 years and operates an established network connecting 5,300 dive shops and resorts worldwide.
The Bali regional managers meeting welcomed 9 regional managers from Malaysia, Australia, Philippines, Thailand, China, Korea and Indonesia who represent PADI to 42 Countries in the Asia-Pacific Region.
The meeting also welcomed PADI's newest regional manager, Tony Andrew, based in Bali.
According to the meeting's organizers, when faced with the dilemma of choosing between Bali and the nearby diving Mecca of Gili Trawangan they took the easy way out and decided to hold the meeting in both locales.
The recent meeting reviewed the current state of the dive industry and explored way that PADI can assist its membership in developing their businesses. Two social events held at the Villa Ombak Resort at Gili Trawangan and the Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel in Bali allowed the PADI managers the opportunity to meet with over 150 local PADI members.
