  • (1888PressRelease) February 07, 2014 - Boca Raton, Fla - Travelpro, the original inventor of Rollaboard® luggage and a market leader in innovative, high-quality luggage design, was honored to receive the World's Best Luggage Award for its Platinum® Magna™ luggage collection from Premier Traveler Magazine's reader-selected "Best of 2013 list". Travelpro CEO, Rob Rankin, 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 subscribers were invited to vote for the Best of 2013 Awards in a survey posted on from June 1st through September 20th, 2013. 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 innovative Platinum Magna collection.

    "We want to thank Premier Traveler subscribers, our customers, retail partners and the media for all their complementary comments on our products," said Scott Applebee, Travelpro's Vice President of Marketing, after receiving the award from Premier Traveler readers. "By listening to customer feedback via social media, product reviews and observational research, we were able to identify the implicit needs of the customer that led to the development of the innovative Platinum Magna magnetic 8-wheel spinner system, which eliminates the drifting and pulling effect that is typically seen in other 4- and 8-wheel Spinner luggage."

    The Platinum Magna Collection introduces four revolutionary patent-pending features, including the MagnaTrac™ magnetic 8-wheel spinner system, with user removable and replaceable Spinner wheels, as well as 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. The entire groundbreaking Platinum Magna collection is backed by the Travelpro® "Worry-Free" lifetime warranty.
