Olympic Gold Medalist and Hockey Legend Mike Eruzione to Deliver Keynote Address at International Window Film Tint-Off and Conference™

June 23rd, 2011 by Editor

International Window Film Tint-Off and Conference™ is delighted to announce that hockey legend Mike Eruzione will address attendees at the Memphis Marriott Downtown in Memphis, Tenn., on September 16, 2011. The keynote address will take place Friday morning during the event. Eruzione will speak on teamwork and the necessary steps to be successful.

Eruzione served as the captain who led the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team to its improbable Gold Medal victory in Lake Placid, N.Y. Most memorable was the moment that Eruzione scored the game-winning goal against the unbeaten Soviet Union team to advance to the medal round. Being dubbed the greatest sports achievement of the 20th century, this story was later immortalized on film in the 2004 movie, “Miracle.”

“Mike understands how important teamwork and persistence are, so he’s well-suited to present the keynote address. I’m sure our attendees will be inspired by his life experiences both on and off the ice,” says event director Holly Biller. “We also want to thank the IWFA and supporting manufacturers who have helped to make this event a success and bring in such a wonderful keynote speaker.”

After the spectacular Olympic victory, Eruzione spent several years in New York and New Jersey as a commentator for the Madison Square Garden Communications Network. He provided coverage of the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils games and also did special interviews with players and coaches for many years.

For the past several years, Eruzione has traveled throughout the United States for major corporations and organizations as a motivational speaker and sports promoter. He also is the director of alumni programs at Boston University and remains actively involved in fundraising events for the U.S. Olympic Committee as well as many charities and youth programs.

In addition to Eruzione’s keynote address, International Window Film Tint-Off and Conference will feature educational seminars, an exhibition area and the International Window Film Tint-Off competition.

This is an event dedicated to the window film industry. Registration and competition details are available online at windowfilmmag.com/tintoff.
