Maldives launches first international dive show
Maldives has launched its first ever international boat and dive show.
Organised by local PR and marketing firm Maldives Getaways, the first edition of the Maldives International Boat and Dive Show will take place from March 22-23, 2018 in the satellite town of Hulhumale.
“Places like Singapore and Dubai already host their own dive shows. With the current growth in the tourism industry, there’s a need for the Maldives to have a dive show of its own,” Abdulla Nashath, a director at the firm, told local media.
Maldives Getaways also publishes Divemv, which is the only dedicated dive magazine in the Maldives. The magazine, developed solely for the purpose of exclusively promoting the Maldives as a dive destination, is published in English with a total of 3000 copies printed and freely distributed to all interested parties across the globe, including suppliers, travel agents and other businesses.
Known internationally as one of the world’s best scuba diving destinations, the Maldives has an abundance of dive sites with one thrilling dive opportunity after another. The islands of the Maldives have consistently warm waters with outstanding visibility throughout the year, and consist of exhilarating dive sites such as vibrant thilas, exciting channels, coral-filled overhangs and fascinating wrecks.
The dive show is a welcome addition to the range of events organised by Maldives Getaways to promote the Maldives tourism industry. The firm is currently gearing up to hold the first edition of Travel Trade Maldives (TTM), the first international travel trade show in the Maldives, in July.
