The Apple Conference at the 12th of September
One of the things we look forward to the most, is the future world of wireless charging. The Apple conference really made clear that wireless charging now isn't only for brands like Samsung and LG/Nexus. The forthcoming models Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone X will both have the technology built in. Newgen will take advantage of the opportunities to distribute the most attractive wireless chargers, portable wireless chargers and wireless desktop stands.
Newgen attended the IFA fair in Berlin to keep updated on what's new. We met both existing and new potential vendors, learned more about new launches together with our customers and discussed future business opportunities in the Nordic market. Below Patrik is seen together with the Homido team and prototypes of new light-weight VR-glasses that won't feel as heavy as standard pairs. A good thing is also that forthcoming models will be able to wear with regular glasses! Also August, purchaser at Clas Ohlson.
We got a request from our vendor Fitbit to promote and sell Fitbit at place at Topploppet 2017 the 16th of September, a race arranged by Bonnier and held yearly. Newgen's Product mananger Patrik joined the event to handle counter and prize-giving to the two winners that came at second place, together with Jennifer from Fitbit's retail-team. A sunny day with many new customers, introduced to what Fitbit can offer for their wellbeing.
