Travelpro Wins Coveted New Product Innovation Award at the 2013 Travel Goods Association Show

1st Place Award for Platinum Magna 8-wheel Spinner Luggage Which Incorporates 5 new technologies

Boca Raton, Fla. – March 6, 2013 – Hollywood has its prestigious Oscar Awards and the Travel Goods Association (TGA) has its New Product Innovation Award. Travelpro, a market leader in durable, lightweight luggage was honored to receive the New Product Innovation Award for its revolutionary Platinum® Magna™ luggage collection at the TGA 2013 show in Las Vegas. This is the second consecutive year that Travelpro has received an award for product innovation at the show.

”We are honored to receive this most important Travel Industry award from our peers,” added Scott Applebee, Travelpro Vice President of Marketing. “We’d like to thank the Travel Goods Association for recognizing Travelpro as a leader in innovation.”

The newly unveiled Platinum Magna is a groundbreaking collection of luxury 8-wheel Spinner and Rollaboard® luggage. Featuring five new patent-pending technologies, the Platinum Magna collection sets a new standard for lightweight, durable and effortlessly maneuverable luggage with the revolutionary MagnaTrac™, 8-wheel Spinner system, user removable and replaceable Spinner wheels, the Duraframe® framing system, the PowerScope extension handle and the Contour handle grip.

The end result of these features is the luggage is easier to move, more durable, lighter weight and more comfortable to grip. Travelpro has eliminated the drifting and pulling effect that is typically seen in other 4- and 8-wheel Spinner luggage. The entire Platinum Magna collection is backed by the Travelpro® “Worry-Free” lifetime warranty.

The award is an acknowledgment of the cutting edge consumer research that served as a foundation for the design of the line. Comments from blogs, reviews, forums, Twitter and Facebook were used to hone-in on very specific consumer needs and wants.
