CANCUN, MEXICO, December 07, 2016 -- AquaWorld was named Top Performing Facility for a sixth consecutive year at the and Marketing Association (DEMA) Show, which took place from November 16 to 19, 2016 in Las Vegas.
AquaWorld is the only company in Mexico that has received this international recognition.
Scuba Diving International (SDI) gave the award, something that brings pride to Alberto Garcia Castillo, SDI and PADI instructor at AquaWorld.
"I believe we are one of SDI's best accounts, not just because of our sales, but because of what we do," said Garcia, who's been at AquaWorld for 23 years. "The quality of people we have here is quite high. And we have been winning this award every year."
The AquaWorld team was among the more than 5,000 attendees, which included divers and photographers known globally, as well as renowned companies such as Body Glove, Head Sports, Hydraulics International, Bauer Compressors Inc., Kinugawa Corporation, and many others.
"It's a spectacular show, everybody is there, all the cream of the crop of diving is there," said Garcia Castillo, adding that the DEMA Show is "very famous, it's been taking place continuously for 30 years."
While there, many attendees expressed interest in the Mexican Caribbean, where diving is becoming more well known over time thanks to AquaWorld's programs.
"We have activities such as diving with the bull sharks, with the whale sharks, with the eagle rays, and to the sunken ship. It's all being promoted to the people, and many agencies and instructors expressed interest in our services," Garcia said.
At DEMA 2016, diving industry leaders presented and exchanged ideas about what's next for the field.
"There's a lot of innovation in everything," Garcia Castillo said, noting that the last 10 years have brought about diving suits "almost like those belonging to James Bond or to astronauts. The equipment is totally different, it doesn't give off bubbles anymore, you breathe your own air."
For Garcia Castillo, interacting with these leaders helps AquaWorld prepare for an awesome 2017.
