Executive Director visits 2015 EUDI Show

In March, Thadeus Bowden, SEI & PDIC Executive Director, flew to Milan Italy and met up with Alessandro Talamona, SEI & PDIC Italia Course Director. Alessandro and his family were gracious hosts and provided a personalized tour of Milan with stops including the architecturally stunning Duomo di Milano (Milan Cathedral).

Thadeus travelled with Alessandro to Bologna, Italy to attend the EUDI 2015 show and visit with SEI & PDIC Italia leadership team members. During the show, the booth was constantly flowing with traffic and often packed with people. Divers and instructors alike stopped to visit and once a day in the afternoon, attendees were invited to sample ham, wine, cheese and chocolates – which were a delicious hit.

During the show, Davide Cecamore, SEI Italia CEO, and Alessandro Talamona, led a presentation and were able to award recognition to newly certified Instructors. Italy is a country with independent, close-knit and passionate scuba diving clubs where the camaraderie is the glue that binds divers together. SEI Instructors even travelled from Switzerland to attend. Friday night of the show, over twenty instructors joined together for a traditional Bologna meal which was a wonderful way to end the EUDI experience.
