It’s already halfway through the diving season, and if you have trouble choosing your next diving destination, maybe the Malaysia International Dive Expo 2008 (MIDE) at the Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur can help.

Now in its third consecutive year, the expo (July 6-July 8, 2008) will showcase free scuba diving at the Show Try Dive Pool, a range of seminars and talks in conjunction with the International Year of the Reef 2008, as well as the latest diving merchandise.

Some South-East Asian resorts will also be promoting their latest packages, with discounts. MIDE ambassador, PADI diving instructor and Capital FM deejay Richard Ng will drop in to promote diving.

Seminars by NGOs that are open to the public include Reef Check Malaysia, Malaysian Nature Society and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). As entry is free, this is your chance to discover new diving destinations.

MIDE visitors stand a chance to win Lucky Dip prizes worth a total of RM33,000.

The organisers are also giving away a grand prize of diving merchandise and a scuba diving internship with Air Diving Centre in Bali worth RM26,400.
