PADI Europe, Middle East and Africa held a special Open Day on May 13th to celebrate the move to the new Pavilions office in Bristol, UK.
Guests were welcomed by PADI President & CEO Drew Richardson and Vice Presidents Mark Caney, Jean Claude Monachon and Neil Fishburne.
After enjoying canapés and sparkling wine, guests were able to visit a range of booths to learn more about the purpose and role of each department. Exhibits from Project AWARE and PADI Sportswear were also on show. In addition to meeting and greeting PADI staff, a group trip to the warehouse was organised – visitors were even invited to take the shrink wrap challenge!
Following a closing presentation by Drew Richardson and Mark Caney, guests were presented with PADI Open Day gift bags before enjoying an evening meal in the Pavilions restaurant.
Open Day visitors were incredibly impressed with the new Pavilions office, and enjoyed the opportunity to meet the PADI staff. Comments from two PADI Members are as follows:
“Thank you and your staff for a superb and most enjoyable visit to your splendid new HQ… You certainly have a first class team”
“It was great to see the new offices (so swish!) and lovely to meet up with so many old friends who work at PADI”
