Our work at compagnon HQ reminds us daily how small the world seems to be these days. International compagnon customers, partners and friends seem to be right around the corner. You can get into touch with anyone in the touch of a button. It seems like sharing the amazing products of compagnon with every creative nomad globally is easily achieved.
But, by now, we know that you can only believe something if you get to see & feel it for ourselves. The special appeal of our bags and backpacks might be one of those things. So when we actually got the chance to be part of PhotoPlus Expo 2018 in NYC we couldn't afford to hesitate. As a result, only 3 weeks after returning from photokina Cologne, we're leaving our home, the Black Forest of Germany, yet again to be there on the spot for you. Bringing our products and as much much of the compagnon feel as possible right to the Big Apple.
Never heard of PhotoPlus Expo? It's the largest photography and imaging show in North America. You can be one of over 25,000 photographers, enthusiasts, videographers, learners of creative craft and digital nomads. Besides meeting and shopping with over 250 manufacturers and brands, like compagnon of course, you can choose from over 100 educational seminars, photo walks and masterclasses. Visit the Expo from October 25th to 27th at Javits Center NYC.
compagnon goes America. We've been here before, though. Showing our products around in retail stores from the East Coast all the way to the Pacific. But to be fair, compagnon changed quite a bit since our trip over 3 years ago. We always knew that our vision of European first class craftsmanship, German naturally tanned leather and user-friendly yet dapper design will win over many hearts in the States. Even though we didn't win over the entire country in our first try, we didn't stop working for it. To be ready one day. We even created a little film to remember how compagnon touched down in the States for the first time. Check it out if you have not seen it:
Now, we're back. And we can confidently say: We're better than ever. And so is the current lineup of camera bags and backpacks we're presenting. We'll be showing you around the great details and fabulous looks of compagnon products at Booth 968. Also we're looking forward to welcome compagnon Ambassador, appreciated friend and New Yorker by choice, Mr Matt Granger during PhotoPlus Expo.
If you're a photography or video enthusiast, (semi-)professional content creator, artist or general creative nomad, you owe it to yourself to experience compagnon. Also, we're very interested in meeting nationwide retailers and distribution partners for the North American market to share the love for compagnon gear throughout the States and build a successful future together.
See you soon in Manhattan!
