Dive Industry Association, Inc.
Websites are an important part of any company’s marketing strategy. They are a Business Person’s link with Current Customers, Former Customers, Future Customers and the general public. Finding the right web designer who understands websites, graphics, the internet and the diving industry is a major challenge for many dive industry professionals and their companies. The Dive Industry Association is no exception.
Over the years, our main trade website, diveindustry.net has grown old and stale. We wanted a new website that reflected our association’s mission, vision and growth. On July 28, 2013 we created a website using WordPress software and WordPress Hosing Services. Our new Blog Website quickly became our main web site at https://diveindustrynews.net Hoping to keep our old website current, we updated the Directory and Shows and Events Pages faithfully, but after 5 years at WordPress with 338 Blog Posts behind us, there was no comparison to WordPress. After seeing the progress we have made in the past few years, we recently decided to scrap our old website and move our domain name over to WordPress. We have stopped hosting www.diveindustry.net until a new web site can be created and hosted at WordPress.
In the meantime, if you have been going to our old website for the past few years, we apologize. Please have a look at our https://diveindustrynews.net Blog/Website to see how active the Association has become. If you haven’t been to our WordPress Site lately, you might not recognize us now. DIA had definitely grown in the past 5 years.
You can subscribe to our WordPress Blog-Website for free. Our Monthly Editorials, Product Reviews and Dive Destination Profiles will keep you current with what we are doing and you’ll be among the first to know if and when we create a new web site. Our 3 Dive Directories and our Shows & Events Pages are current and read by Dive Industry Professionals Worldwide.
