Posted by Nicole Perry on Wednesday, July 31st, 2013 | No Comments »

Outdoor Retailer imageOver the next four days, thousands of outdoor industry folks will flock to the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City. It is THE place to be for exhibitors to present, and retailers to preview the vast array of new Spring/Summer ’14 outdoor products that range from apparel, footwear and accessories, to backpacking, climbing and paddling gear.

The show is also a great gathering place for product developers to check out the many ingredients (textiles, materials and components) used in the innovative XRD 8 fold v3design of these products.  That’s where we come in!

Our PORON® Cushioning Team will be at the show (booth 155-513 in the Design Center) to meet with product developers to help them with their distinct design challenges. We will be presenting our new PORON® XRD® Shapes, which allow designers to develop attention-grabbing apparel and gear designs with high performance cushioning and impact protection.  There will also be a collection of new products from our PORON Performance Cushioning Performers on display!

So if you are at the show, we would love to see you!  Come by early so you can grab a pair of PORON Cushioning insoles to keep your feet comfy while you walk those miles of aisles!

And if your feet are just craving an ‘aaahh’ moment, stop by on Thursday, August 1st from 1-5pm when we will have a massage therapist in the booth giving foot massages!

Stay tuned as we post new PORON Performers reviews and news from the show!
