Travelpro Teams Up With Romina Arena to Celebrate Her New Book

Share your travel story for a chance to win a two-piece Travelpro® luggage set!

Have you ever watched a movie like Roman Holiday, The Talented Mr. Ripley, or The Bicycle Thief, and wondered where they filmed it? The answer is “Italy,” of course. But where?

Where Did They Film That book cover by Romina ArenaIn many of these films, Italy has been the silent character that says so much. Only the streets of Rome, Florence, Palermo, and Milan can truly portray the country in a way no movie set ever could.

To showcase her country, Italian singer, Romina Arena, the “Queen of Popera,” is releasing her first book — Where Did They Film That?: Italy — as a way to show movie fans where some of their favorite movies were made, and the must-visit locations in the area, like restaurants, museums, and hotels. The book is set to be released in May 2016.

Travelpro is partnering with Arena to help celebrate her new book with the Where Did They Film That?: Italy sweepstakes. We’re giving away a 2-piece set of Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 bags to the winner — an International Carry-on Spinner and a 29″ Expandable Spinner — with an MSRP value of $1,400.

We like to share travel tips to help you travel better and safer.

One successful example of their use of multi-media rich global platforms is the intriguing work done with international travel writer Mark Eveleigh as he used and reviewed the Travelpro® TPro ® Bold™ line during his three-month journey down the Amazon River. This ‘real life’ approach to the brands is shared throughout all of the social media sites – blogs, Facebook – which added another 1,000 followers monthly for Travelpro and 2,024 for Atlantic Luggage since February — Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram, that concentrate less on advertising and more on providing information, advice, sharing ideas and encouraging people to explore the world around them.

Newest Innovations In Travelpro Luggage

June 10, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

We don’t often talk about our luggage on our blog, but we’ve come up with some innovations that we think will improve travelers’ experience. The changes to our products were far from cosmetic, and designed to solve a common issue with modern luggage: stability.

When using four- or eight-wheel spinner luggage, the luggage has a tendency to swerve to the left or right. This puts a strain on the traveler’s wrist and shoulder as he or she compensates to keep the luggage moving in a straight line. This isn’t unlike a car whose wheels are out of alignment. In order to keep the vehicle in a straight path, the driver must constantly correct the direction.

Travelpro 21 inch Blue Marquis Spinner

Travelpro 21 inch Blue Marquis Spinner

We came up with a solution to the drifting issue by designing our patent-pending MagnaTrac Spinner wheels which incorporate magnetic wheel technology. Made specifically for spinner luggage, we created a system where the wheels will always line up and go straight, but can still be turned easily. The result is less strain on your body, which can mean a more enjoyable (or less tiring) trip.

We also introduced two other patented features, the Contour Grip and the PowerScope handle. Contour Grip is a handle specifically designed for use with Spinner wheels. The handle is made from two cushioned halves that fit directly into the palm of your hand, cushioning it while you push your bag through the airport. This improved handle gives you more comfort and control of your luggage, regardless of whether you push or pull.

The Powerscope Handle is made to resist the pressure points that form when pushing luggage and reduce the wobble in the handle. This gives you more control over the bag, and helps prevent breakage.

All three TravelPro designs won awards at the Travel Goods Association Product Innovation Awards in 2012 and 2013, including 1st place for the MagnaTrac™ Spinner innovation. These designs will be applied to multiple Travelpro product lines so the improvements can fit within most travelers’ budgets.
