“We are thrilled to be a part of this extraordinary event,” said Eileen Berner, Sales and Marketing Director, PrimaLoft. “Our sponsorship of the Banff Mountain Film & Book Festivals and Tour aligns perfectly with our overall marketing initiative, which is to engage with and develop emotional connections with outdoor enthusiasts, brands, organizations and retailers.”

“The Festivals seek partnerships with authentic outdoor companies that share our values and passions,” said Laurie Harvey, Manager Strategic Partnership for the Banff Mountain Festivals. “We are excited to partner with PrimaLoft and to align PrimaLoft with the 2009 Banff Mountain Film and Book Festivals and North American Tour.”

As a sponsor of the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival and North American Tour, PrimaLoft's message will be delivered in a visually inspiring and powerful way onscreen, and through various print and electronic media.
