Michael Schamis is a professional with experience in sales and marketing. Based in New York City, he is currently a sales associate for a fine wine retailer, Mister Wright Fine Wines & Spirits. In addition to his marketing and sales work, Michael Schamis is an instructor with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors.
The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) recently was on hand to lend its support to the Australia International Dive Expo (AIDE) in Sydney, Australia. The event was put on by the same team that organizes the Malaysia International Dive Expo (MIDE) and featured dive tours, equipment displays, the latest and greatest gadgets, and advice from diving experts.
PADI marked its third year of sponsorship in this year’s AIDE, which takes place each September. PADI featured a “try dive” pool for those looking to learn more about diving through a firsthand experience. Visitors who signed up for courses at the event also received free PADI t-shirts.
