Dive show organisers cheered by turnout
An economy in the toilet didn’t stop visiting masses
DIVE – which is organised by Diver Group, recorded a total of 15,456 through the turnstiles over the weekend of 22nd October.
This is despite an economy in the toilet, rising unemployment and a tough trading environment for the UK’s diving manufacturers.
Some exhibitors on the show floor – which included big hitters such as Scubapro, Suunto and Typhoon – even reported record-breaking sales.
But it wasn’t only kit that drew crowds. Many of the presentations were over-subscribed too.
Paul Rose detailed his movements to a packed house, as did Monty Halls on the subject of his new TV series.
