MUMBAI: With travelling becoming one of the most preferred activities of many, numerous luggage manufactures are launching travel-friendly and stylish brands.
The latest entrant in the Indian market is High Sierra by Samsonite. The hi-end brand aims to wow the Indian travel enthusiasts with its feature rich designs and versatile functionality.
Speaking on the launch, Samsonite South Asia MD Suresh Menon said: “The Indian youth today is far more keen to travel and explore new places than it ever has been. Over the last few years we have seen a steady increase of domestic and international travel in this segment and we feel that this trend has also created a demand for a specific product. High Sierra is one of the most popular outdoor, adventure brands in the US and we feel that the products will also receive a similar response from the Indian audience.”
He added, “For the launch of High Sierra in India we have looked at a strong digital strategy and online presence. Right from day one our products are not only available across major online players but our social presence has also created a positive response across Facebook, Twitter and our own website www.highsierra.in. We have an active list of travel bloggers, fans who are experiencing the product and providing us feedback in real time.”
