CabinZero greatly strengthens efforts in travel market with key appointment of new Global Travel Retail Sales Director Denz Van der List

Ultra-cool, cabin-sized bag specialist CabinZero is to welcome experienced industry figure Denz Van der List to its ranks on September 1st, as it seeks to further strengthen its efforts in the travel retail (TR) market. CabinZero’s newest addition (previously International Sales Director for TR at neck pillow and travel essentials company Cabeau) will attend the 2019 TFWA World Exhibition and Conference in Cannes, bringing to bear his expertise on the company’s newest range that is already attracting great interest. Riding high on a wave of success after two new airline listings for its products, as well as a collaboration with the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London, CabinZero’s major new appointment is yet another feather in the cap for the innovative bag company since its official launch in 2012. Founder and CEO Neil Varden formed the idea for the “adventure-proof backpack” while travelling in India, after experiencing the burdens of many broken bags and cabin restrictions. The fast-rising, travel-inspired brand hopes that its New Sales Director for Global TR, Van der List – already well known in the industry – will use his vast experience in duty free/paid airport retail, inflight retail, cruises, hotels and international distribution to bolster the success of the impressive range of CabinZero bags available. All of which are meticulously designed with travel in mind and include must-have features such as: all-weather protection, hide-away straps, trolley slip, thicker padding on the back and straps, sternum straps, bottle/umbrella pockets and laptop compartments. Van der List said of his appointment: “I am thrilled to be appointed as the Sales Director for Global Travel Retail at CabinZero. “Following the company from its introduction in Cannes, when I received one of its backpacks at the Frontier Awards, I’ve been very excited by its growth. CabinZero travel retail exclusive products and its commitment to ongoing development and innovation throughout the product range gives me the enviable job of helping to develop the brand through the travel retail channel. “CabinZero has affordable, fashionable and luxury travel items. Above all, they are items that people want to own and start to use as soon as they see them. I think the company is a perfect fit for travel retail and I’m greatly looking forward to the opportunities that lay ahead for us.”
