Last week was the 63rd annual Travel Goods Show. While a trade show about luggage might seem to be an industry-only story, we found real innovations that will matter to everyday travelers. And when a luggage innovation takes off, it can change the whole industry….did you know the Rollaboard suitcase is only 25 years old?
This year, it’s not so much about reinventing the wheel as it is improving it. Like any trade show, there were some hits and some misses (stay tuned for more of those) but we were able to spot five trends in luggage that are going to make travel better for you this year.
Watch as Alyssa Caverley highlights new wheel technology, hard-case pocket innovations, collapsible luggage, convertible bags, and organization improvements.
