WIDIA and Kennametal Sponsor Exclusive House of Blues® Event at IMTS 2010

(LATROBE, PA) – During IMTS 2010, attendees may see The Blues Brothers in the show aisles handing out invitations to the hottest event during IMTS week: “Let’s Rock Chicago!” at Chicago’s famous House of Blues®. The experience kicks off at 7pm on Wednesday, September 15, and will feature free appetizers, drinks, and live music.

Attendees can register for the event in three ways: through visiting www.letsrockchicago.com before the show; visit either Kennametal (Booth W-1522) or WIDIA (Booth W-1452), co-sponsors of the event, at the show; or register on-site at the House of Blues. All guests are encouraged to arrive early, as space will be limited to the first 1,300 people.

If the reviews at the IMTS 2008 House of Blues® gathering are accurate, this promises to be the hottest party at IMTS 2010. Then, as now, live music provided the background (in 2008, a singer with a strong resemblance to U2’s Bono mingled with the crowd and sat in for a few songs) and guests were dancing and enjoying the atmosphere for the entire evening.

Those not fortunate enough to run into Jake and Elwood on the IMTS show floor (perhaps your sunglasses were a tad dark?), are urged to visit the WIDIA and Kennametal booths early to make the list. The House of Blues definitely rocks Chicago, and this is an event you don’t want to miss at this year’s IMTS.
