The Chicago Blackhawks are pleased to announce that the Inaugural Blackhawks Convention slated for July 18-20 has been completely sold out. An anticipated crowd of 10,000 will be on hand to attend what is believed to be the first event of its kind in the history of the National Hockey League.

Fan response was outstanding as hotel rooms sold out in 24 hours and weekend passes to the convention sold out in less than two weeks.

“The fan response was just incredible,” said Blackhawks Team President John McDonough. “This promises to be a very special weekend and we are all looking forward to it with great anticipation.”

Former Blackhawks greats and Hall of Famers Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita and Tony Esposito along with General Manager Dale Tallon, current Chicago Blackhawks Head Coach Denis Savard and young stars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane will headline the weekend of fun at the First Annual Chicago Blackhawks Convention . Many of the current Blackhawks players and several other alumni members will also be on hand throughout the weekend.

Chicago native and current Blackhawks and national television analyst Eddie Olczyk will act as Honorary Chairman of the Inaugural Blackhawks Convention.

The inaugural Chicago Blackhawks Convention will take place in downtown Chicago, July 18-20, 2008. The “puck drops” Friday (7/18) at 5:00 PM with Opening Ceremonies at the Hilton Chicago (720 S. Michigan Avenue).

The convention will continue on Saturday (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM) and Sunday (9:00 AM –12:00 NOON) and the festivities will include:

• Autograph and photo sessions with current and former Blackhawks
• Q&A sessions with current and former Blackhawks, Business and Hockey Management, and Broadcasters
• Coaches and Hockey Operations Staff detailing their strategy for bringing the Stanley Cup to Chicago
• Exhibits and interactive games
• A live HawkCast (podcast) taping

Current and former Blackhawks will be on hand as we look forward to the upcoming 2008-2009 season. Blackhawks legends Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, Tony Esposito, Denis Savard, and other favorite alumni will recount their days in the Chicago Stadium while young stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews will be joined by fellow teammates to share their experiences on and off the ice.

Player appearances and schedule are subject to change. Additional Blackhawks Convention details will be posted at chicagoblackhawks.com as they become available.
