Gearing up for a Great Outdoor Retailer Winter Market!

Posted by Nicole Perry on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012 | No Comments »

Look out Salt Lake City, here we come!  The PORON® Cushioning Team is looking forward to seeing old friends and colleagues, and meeting new ones as well, at one of our all-time favorite trade shows -the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, which will be held at the Salt Palace January 19 – 22, 2012.

Outdoor Retailer is a great opportunity for us to collaborate with the many product developers and designers who attend the show looking for the latest developments in technical materials.  It’s also an occasion where we can visit with many of our footwear, aftermarket insole, and protective apparel/equipment customers under one roof!

From product demonstrations and giveaways, to challenging the defender of the Canadian Street Hockey Cup tournament at the Industry Party, the Rogers PORON® Cushioning Team is looking forward to a fun-packed Outdoor Retailer Winter Market!  We hope you stop by our booth # 155-405 located in the Design Center and say hello!

PORON® Cushioning Outdoor Retailer Show Events, Booth 155-405

  • Each day of the show, we’ll be giving away comfy insoles made with PORON® Cushioning Material.  So whether you are gearing up for, or winding down from a long day on the show floor, stop our booth and pick up a free pair of PORON trim to fit insoles.  Your back and feet will love you for it!
  • The PORON® team is constantly gathering information from their customers on impact protection needs and trends.  So we  want to hear from you!  Stop by the PORON® booth or see the PORON® representative to tell us what      body parts you’ve injured most while participating in sports.  For your participation you’ll receive a  free PORON®  Beanie Bumper made with PORON® XRD™      Protection for your headwear and also be entered for a chance to win a      pair of G-Form Elbow or Knee Pads made with PORON XRD Protection.
  • To celebrate the introduction of our new Beanie Bumper made with PORON® XRD™ Impact Protection made for headwear, stop by our booth to let us know where you’ve been injured most.  You will receive your very own Beanie Bumper and a chance to win a pair of G-Form elbow, shin or knee pads made with PORON® XRD™ Material.
  • Want to see how the Beanie Bumper can protect your noggin?  Come by the booth to request a PORON® XRD™ Extreme Impact Material demonstration. We will place a Beanie Bumper over a clay flower pot, then drop a pétanque ball on top of it.  Can you guess what happens?

  • The PORON® Xtremes are looking forward to competing in the Canadian Cup Street Hockey Tournament to benefit the Conservation Alliance.  It takes place the first night of the show during the Industry Party.  Come cheer us on!  We’ll be the ones with the bright yellow G-Form knee pads made with PORON® XRD™ Protection.

Travel safely and see you at the show!
