Vepe named Official 360° LED Board Supplier of E.H.C. Alliance

Gothenburg, Sweden (9 March 2022) - Vepe and the Alliance of European Hockey Clubs (E.H.C.) today announced a multi-year partnership, naming Vepe the official 360° LED Boards supplier of the E.H.C. Alliance.

The partnership will offer Vepe an array of networking and exposure opportunities within the European club hockey community and preferred participation at the E.H.C. Hockey Business Forum, a must-attend international networking event and the best forum in Europe to attend for hockey clubs looking to grow their businesses.

Vepe has developed and manufactured ice hockey dasher boards as a pioneer in Finland since 1976, bringing the first flexible boards into Europe to the IIHF World Championships in Stockholm in 2011. Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics Ice Hockey and Paralympics Para Ice Hockey were played with Vepe Beta Flexi boards.

In November 2021 Vepe delivered unique and the first in the world 360° LED Boards to Nokia Arena in Tampere, the home arena for Ilves and Tappara. Nokia Arena will also be the main stage for the IIHF World Championship in May 2022. The innovative Vepe NextGen 360° LED boards raise the existing flexible board standard to a totally new level by making it possible to install LED screens in the whole set of boards. Also, Lukko Rauma will get 360° LED boards installed to their existing arena for next season.

“Compared to static advertisement prints, Vepe 360° LED boards allow videos and constantly changing content. This creates new possibilities in advertisement business and raises the bar for viewer experience,” says Antti Terkomaa, Vepe CEO.

“In addition to that, the board screens support other events in a multifunctional arena, thus enabling visible and targeted content on an event-specific basis for just that audience and the moment it is intended to. This solution changes the actions of advertisers, clubs and arena organizations, and brings added value to all parties. In the Vepe NextGen board, the LED screens will be installed even closer to the playing surface, thus granting the best optical condition and the best spectator experience from every seat” says Antti Terkomaa.

“We are truly delighted to enter into a partnership with Vepe that has such a track record in delivering products and solutions which are essential for hockey,” says Szymon Szemberg, Managing Director of the E.H.C. Alliance. “We are especially excited to promote the new 360° LED Boards, which we are convinced will be a game-changer regarding revenue potential for many of our member clubs.”
