This summer HockeyShot sent their best to Manchester, New Hampshire to participate in the New England Hockey Expo! This year’s event was held on August 26th and 27th at the beautiful Radisson Hotel. The first annual New England Hockey Expo was the consumer show for all things hockey! The expo featured many of the top hockey manufacturers in cutting edge equipment, training aids and apparel. Attendees of all ages had the opportunity to participate in demonstrations and test out some of the latest gear the sport has to offer over the course of the two-day event!
There was a lot going on throughout the weekend. Parents had the chance to connect with many of the local clubs, organizations and hockey camp directors to learn important information about the upcoming season and ask questions. Highlights of the weekend included special guest appearances from Boston Bruin’s defenseman Adam McQuaid and centerman Tim Schaller! The Bruins stars took photos and signed autographs for fans with all proceeds going to local charities. Over the weekend event exhibitors put on fun and challenging hockey competitions and giveaways making the expo an enjoyable and interactive event for hockey fans of all ages!
For the expo HockeyShot teamed up the New Hampshire Junior Monarchs to host both a Hardest Shot and Accuracy Shooting competition! Contestants had the chance to test out their shooting skills for a chance to win one of eight awesome HockeyShot products! This year’s prizes included some of the best from an “Extreme” collection. Up for grabs was HockeyShot’s Shooter Tutor, Sports Radar Gun, Shooting Tarp, Passing Kit Pro, Dangler, Hockey Sauce Kit, Shooting Pad and Slide Board Pro! The hardest shot competition was a hit with attendees lining up to test their power. Contestants were shown the importance of properly setting up the Sports Radar Gun. By keeping the radar in a shaded area and tilted slightly down it ensures that only the puck is picked up and avoids the radar reading stick movements and any other “ghost readings.” Kids were instructed to aim low for harder shots! HockeyShot handed out promotional bracelets, stickers, sunglasses and t-shirts to participants and offered flyers and catalogs for more information on the best hockey products!
Staff had a great time interacting with hockey fans young and old over the weekend and showcasing some pretty cool hockey products! HockeyShot strongly recommends the event to anyone in New England looking to test out some of the newest equipment in the game, have some fun and expand their hockey knowledge! The company is looking forward to attending next year.
