Visitors to the recent VIP Jackson Bonanza 2012 will remember the Uponor name for many months to come, after being thrown an opportunity of a lifetime with a darts world champion.
Uponor stole the show at Jackson’s recent trade show, held at the Lincolnshire Showground, where visitors and guests were able to play 2008 world champion Mark ‘the spider’ Webster at a number of darts challenges.
The games involved Mark throwing six darts and the competition nine darts in a high score challenge, but the world number eight was still impressed with what he saw, even if he was slightly hamstrung.
Uponor’s sales director, Mark Tudor, said that exhibiting at the Jackson’s event had been a big success, with a number of sales leads generated and huge brand exposure also achieved through the innovative darts stage. He said: “Our plumbing solutions including pre-insulated pipe and One Pack underfloor heating systems were well received, as was our darts stand with Mark Webster, who we sponsor.
“There were a number of 180s as well as some slightly less memorable scores, but the standard overall was fantastic, as was the decision to exhibit at the Jackson event.”
