Travelpro Voted “World’s Best Luggage” by Premier Traveler Magazine for 2nd Consecutive Year

Travelpro, the original inventor of Rollaboard luggage and a market leader in innovative, high-quality luggage design, was honored to receive the prestigious “World’s Best Luggage Award,” from Premier Traveler Magazine’s reader survey for the second consecutive year. Travelpro Vice President of Marketing, Scott Applebee, was on hand to receive the award at Premier Traveler Magazine’s festive gala event, celebrating the upper echelon of the global travel industry, held at the Sofitel Los Angeles Hotel.
Over 14,000 Premier Traveler readers voted for the Best of 2014 Awards in a survey posted on from June 1st through September 20th, 2014. The survey consisted of open-ended questions only, with no company names given or choices provided. As a result, the luggage Premier Traveler readers favored most was Travelpro, the luggage choice of flight crews and frequent travelers and its comprehensive offering of innovative luggage collections.
“We want to thank Premier Traveler readers, our customers, retail partners and the media for all their complementary comments on our products,” said Applebee, after receiving the award from Premier Traveler. “By listening to customer feedback via social and traditional media, product reviews and observational research, we were able to identify the implicit needs of the customer that led to the development of a series of groundbreaking luggage innovations. One of the most recognized developments has been the MagnaTrac spinner wheel system, which eliminates the drifting and pulling effect that typically occurs when pushing other 4- and 8-wheel Spinner luggage.”
Travelpro 21 inch Blue Marquis Spinner with contour handleAnother breakthrough innovation is the patented Contour handle grip. It was the first handle grip designed specifically for Spinner luggage. The Contour Grip provides superior comfort and control, relieving fatigue on the shoulder, arm, hand and wrist when pushing Spinner luggage. In addition, the exceptionally strong, patented PowerScope Extension Handle minimizes wobble when fully extended. Strong enough to support a tote or case, PowerScope had been tested over 10,000 up and down cycles.
