Oxygen Plus: The Air Apparent” of Sundance Film Festival

Park City, UT (PRWEB) January 22, 2015

Oxygen Plus (O+), the pioneer and leader in the growing category of portable recreational oxygen, today announced its mission to be the preferred air of independent filmmakers and film enthusiasts during the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Robert Redfords epic event, which takes place in Park City, Utah from Jan. 22 through Feb. 1 attracts approximately 50,000 movie-lovers over its two-week span.

Oxygen Plus will host a number of activities during the festival, promoting its lightweight, ski-jacket-friendly canisters of 95% pure, recreational oxygen that restores mental clarity and depleted energy levels to normal, healthy levels. The O+ team will elevate the streets and slopes of Park City through product education at select Oxygen Plus retailers, including Marmot on Main (540 Main Street) and various Jans Mountain Outfitters (http://www.jans.com) locations. Visitors, mountain mavens and partiers who are shaken by the combination of jetlag, higher elevation, skiing and multiple nights on the town, can purchase Oxygen Plus when they land and throughout the festival to feel, as Oxygen Plus CMO Lauren Carlstrom phrased it, more like you again. Carlstrom said, Oxygen Plus is at Sundance so festival attendees can feel more energized and revitalized so theyre not catching their breath when they’re walking to a premiere, recovering from a late night out, or flying down black diamonds on the slopes. Our company has always been about helping people go further, so, Carlstrom teased, it shouldnt be surprising if, by chance, attendees are offered a lift in the O+ SUV.

In addition, Oxygen Plus has partnered with SiriusXM host, Todd Shapiro, to broadcast The Todd Shapiro Show from the studios of Park City’s KPCW 91.9 FM on Thursday, Jan. 22 and Friday, Jan. 23.
