Thursday, December 13, 2012

What do a jar of pickles, ski bindings and creativity have in common with a Vermont winter?

Come to ECHOís AfterDark event, THATíS BRILLIANT! and find out!

THATíS BRILLIANT! is an evening dedicated to ingenuity and creativity by Vermont inventors with a focus on the Vermont Winter Outdoors and, new this year, a twist of sorts with presentations by the VT Agency of Transportation and also by Vermont Ski Safety.

ECHOís new Revision Lakeside Pavilion space will be transformed into an inventorís dream space with nine Vermont exhibitors showing off creativity around products created for winter use.

Climb aboard! VT Trans will also have their Super Tanker Salt Brine Truck on display with additional VT Trans folks on hand to answer questions.

Observe, touch, try and learn about these useful, quirky, clever and amazing inventions! Meet inventors and learn about their special creations and what motivated them to invent in the first place. Learn how to get your invention to market from professionals who will be on hand.
