(Princeton, New Jersey) In the always-on, Internet-connected global economy, someone’s always working, somewhere. Today’s business isn’t confined to regular hours, much less the regular workplace. And the latest issue of Travel Goods Showcase shows off brand new, just-released items that turn portability into productivity for local commuters and globe-trotting professionals alike, allowing them to work anywhere, at any moment.

Story highlights from the upcoming issue include:

  • BAGS GET THE BUSINESS The new generation of business cases let you take your business on the go, yet keep you grounded and organized in the workplace whether you’re out in the field or in the board room.
  • ACCESSORIES Items that preserve connectivity, protect electronics and data, power you up and keep you productive on your everyday commute or border-crossing travel.
  • CROWDFUNDING: THE NEW VENTURE CAPITAL How Kickstarter and the crowdfunding phenomenon are changing the game for travel goods startups and established players alike with capitalization, market data and consumer insight.

All items appearing in Travel Goods Showcase are brand new to these pages; most are just-ready-for-market, with almost zero previous consumer exposure. Look for the new issue of Travel Goods Showcase in your mailbox soon. Please contact Kate Ryan with any inquiries concerning this issue or the Travel Goods Association.
