(Princeton, New Jersey) The Fall "Business" Issue of Travel Goods Showcase is on its way to mailboxes, and its pages are packed with dynamic photo spreads featuring the latest briefs, totes, and overnight essentials for corporate America, a roundup of the most current travel accessories, and up-and-coming trends for business road warriors.

This very special issue also celebrates the 75th Anniversary of the Travel Goods Association. It's brimming with the history of TGA, The International Travel Goods Show, and Travel Goods Showcase, and as well as contributions from industry leaders on important milestones and what's next in the industry. Travel goods aficionados will also be able to test their knack for history with snippets from past issues of Showcase.

The line-up of must-read, Fall Issue features includes:

  • Modern Business: Less is More — Today's business customers are faced with multiple demands. In turn, they demand a lot from the bags required to get them through the day. The modern workforce encompasses a bigger, broader, more diversified demographic than ever before. It's more opportunity for the savvy retailer, but it's going to take more than just good service to keep them coming back.

  • What's Hot for Business — With ever-blurring lines between social, work, and professional lives, people's everyday travels require more stuff. These pages contain the smart, new cases that help carry and organize gear, to help users maximize productivity wherever they go.

  • Accessories — It takes more than a mere briefcase to gear up for the modern workplace. From sleeves and straps to stands and chargers, these are the accessories that keep today's workforce powered up, energized, and mobile.

  • TGA Celebrates 75 Years of Advocacy, Community, and Connectivity — The Travel Goods Association is the world's largest trade organization devoted to travel goods, but it did not always exist. In 1938, 14 men sat down and launched the organization that would eventually become TGA. This feature includes a look at the Association's history, reflection from industry leaders, and contributions from past and present TGA members.

The 2013 Fall Issue of Travel Goods Showcase is a must-read. Look for it in your mailbox, and contact Kate Ryan, 774-929-5223, with questions about any of the featured products or articles.
