Targus® Mobile ViP Backpack Named CES® 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree

Anaheim, CA – November 10, 2016 – Targus, leader in the mobile computing accessories category, announced today that its Mobile ViP Backpack was named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Computer Accessories category. The award-winning backpack will be displayed at the CES Innovation Awards Showcase, which runs January 5 to 8, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We’re honored to be recognized with the Innovation Awards for the Mobile ViP Backpack,” says David Dorantes, Director of Product Marketing at Targus. “It’s the ultimate laptop case for the modern professional with a focus on protection, convenience, and comfort.”

The Mobile ViP features Targus’ innovative SafePort® Sling protection system, its patented checkpoint-friendly design that helps users zoom through TSA airport screenings with the laptop safely inside, and a convertible floor that accommodates larger supplies, if necessary. Plus, the pack doesn’t slouch thanks to its structured and tailored design.

CES Innovation Awards are granted to new consumer technology products that enable, enhance, and connect computer systems across 28 categories. Entries are on the products’ innovation in design, engineering, and user value.

This award helps reaffirm that the Mobile ViP Backpack is a valuable product in the market — with quality engineering, design, and aesthetics — which aligns with Targus’ mission to create cutting-edge, quality-made products to carry, protect, and connect mobile devices so that professionals can perform at their best everywhere they work.


The Mobile ViP Backpack is available through authorized resellers and at targus.com.
