World’s Largest Hockey Consumer Trade Show Draws over 40,000 Fans
Woodstock, CT; February 15, 2012 – In anticipation of viewing the latest and greatest with all things hockey, thousands of fans will flock to the 23rd annual Let’s Play Hockey Expo taking place at the River Centre in St. Paul, MN, March 9-10, 2012. The PORON® Cushioning Team will be there to educate and demonstrate how PORON® XRD™ Extreme Impact Technology works and how it is incorporated into the best hockey equipment on the market today.
PORON XRD Extreme Impact Protection Material is a key component in BAUER hockey gloves, pants, goalie equipment and helmets, including its newly released BAUER RE-AKT helmet. While soft and flexible to the touch, PORON XRD Material instantly forms a comfortable, protective shell on impact, providing reliable and long-lasting protection, hit after hit.
The Let’s Play Hockey Expo is held in conjunction with the Minnesota boys state high school hockey tournament, which is held in the attached Xcel Energy Center allowing easy access to this free event. In addition to product displays from major manufacturers, the Expo also features sports celebrity appearances, radio and TV personalities, product seminars and more.
“We look forward to meeting a passionate group of hockey fans at the Expo, and introducing them to our impact-protection technology” said Dave Sherman, Business Development Manager, Rogers’ PORON® Cushioning. “There has been a lot of attention paid to protective equipment in the news lately, and we hope to give attendees a better understanding of the materials that go into products developed to keep players in the game.”
Attendees have the opportunity to score a ‘hat trick’ by registering to win BAUER hockey gear with PORON XRD Protection in three different promotions:
