Through a several magic scenarios, the innovation of Targus solutions with profound theories enhancing the daily life was smartly envisioned — highlighting that a moment with Targus makes complicated things much easier like a magic. For instance, an office station on the stage suddenly disappeared just like the way Targus “Hot Docks” efficiently save the office space, while magic cards were amazingly controlled by the magician LEWIS just like Targus “Remote-control Presenter” and unseen story could be only read by him like Targus “Privacy Screen”.
Followed by the magic show, Targus 2019 collections were showcased on a special runway. Interestingly, models wearing Targus’ backpacks were running across the irregular shape of runway instead of traditional T-stage. Key collections showcased during the runway were “Groove X generation 2 — Max and Compact”, “CityLite Pro“, “Newport generation 2 — convertible“, and “Work and Play“. “New iPad case” which is one of the season hot item of the brand was introduced. At the same time, “Targus USB-C™ Universal Quad Video HD Docking Station (DOCK520USZ)” which has won a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree and “Targus DOCK190″, a native USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1 (USB Super Speed) Universal Docking Station (UDS) were also launched. Clothing of the models was sponsored by 33 XUANPRIVE — a luxury and famous Hangzhou fashion brand which provides prestige tailor-made clothing services for upper-class business men and women as well as top-tier Asia celebrities like Chi-ling Lin, and XuKi.
“Targus 2019 collections are produced by a mix of creative design, advanced technology, quality materials, ergonomics theories, and patented functions. What is even more amazing about our new collection is that some of the line-ups consist of unique functions like anti-forward tilting design and sling protection which enable stronger protection of your laptop, similar to the theory of air technology designed for running shoes to protect the feet. We hope our 2019 collection will further enhance the mobility of today’s on-the-go-professionals. Committed to support our consumers to perform at their best, we will continue to strive in our innovation to liberate our consumers in using their mobile devices in any and all environments,” added Edith Ka.
