Celebrating the Art of Travel: Briggs & Riley Marks 30th Anniversary

Revisit favorite travel incentives from Baseline, @work & Rhapsody collections

The start of spring is a celebratory time, ushered in by warmer temperatures, more hours of sunlight, blooming flowers, and special occasions like spring break. It’s an exciting moment of transition, filled with joy and festivities. And for many people, it’s the perfect time for travel.

Whether it’s the first family vacation of the year or a beach weekend tacked onto a business trip, spring is when lots of people hit the open road or take to the skies. Thus, the season’s cheerful mood makes sense – there’s nothing quite like the anticipation of a forthcoming journey or the awe of exploring a new place.

However, this year, it isn’t only travelers delighting in the seasonal shift. Briggs & Riley – the industry-leading brand known for its stylish, seamless, and functional travel rewards – is commemorating a major milestone with a seasonal celebration of its own. Travel incentives can be a powerful tool to boost employee motivation and loyalty.

Briggs & Riley commemorates 30 years of innovation

March marks Briggs & Riley’s 30th anniversary. For three decades, the premium travel company has been an unstoppable force, crafting groundbreaking bags and luggage, and offering the industry’s only true lifetime guarantee.

Reaching the 30-year mark is an achievement in and of itself, but Briggs & Riley isn’t content to pat itself on the back. For its special 30 Days Of Giving campaign, the brand has partnered with Comfort Cases, a charity organization that provides comfort and personal care items to children entering the foster care system. During the month of March, for every order over $99 made exclusively on its official website, Briggs & Riley will donate one bag to a foster child in need. It’s an incredible initiative that exudes compassion and reinforces why the brand is so beloved.

Additionally, this monumental anniversary serves as an excellent occasion to revisit some of Briggs & Riley’s most coveted products.

Corporate incentives that illustrate the art of travel

Part of Briggs & Riley’s appeal is its versatility – its many pioneering collections meet the needs of all travelers from occasional adventurers and weekend warriors to frequent flyers and international voyagers. These corporate incentives are perfect for business travel or traveling with family and friends.

The flagship Baseline collection is a feat of savvy engineering and timeless style, with many of the hallmarks that Briggs & Riley customers have come to love. One-touch CX™ Compression Expansion easily increases packing capacity, the Outsider® handle enables a flat packing surface, and the ballistic nylon fabric stands up to the challenges of any trip. The Essential Carry-On is a favorite, highlighted as a top luggage pick by The New York Times’ Wirecutter, The Manual, and USA Today. Reviewers love the spaciousness, the shock-absorbing spinner wheels, and the durability. Other popular Baseline entries include the Weekender Duffle, Medium Expandable Spinner, and Large Expandable Spinner.

Baseline Essential Carry-on Spinner - Olive

Sympatico’s stellar hard side pieces, which bring high style to every baggage claim carousel, have been lauded by critics as well. Observer loved the Medium Expandable Spinner’s TSA-approved lock and CX® technology-enabled expandability while Real Simple raved about its polycarbonate shell, steel wheels, and handles.

For shorter distances, the @work collection offers an intelligent extension of professional style, infusing work bags with modern detailing and impeccable organization. The Large Cargo Backpack is a standout – it fits most 17” laptops and has an intricately designed main compartment with pockets and pouches for all business essentials. This is a must-have for the spring commutes ahead.

Rhapsody pushes the professional aesthetic in a more fashion-forward direction, with lightweight fabrics and chrome hardware. The Essential Tote comes in vibrant colors – like Plum and Navy – and makes it easy to access everything you need, with a simple button closure and loads of packing space. The Rhapsody Tote offers the same striking details in a classic silhouette.

And for more rugged outings, the ZDX collection’s duffles are up for the challenge. The 27” Medium Upright Duffle holds bulky and oddly shaped gear with ease, making long-distance travel seamless despite unusual cargo. The Large Travel Duffle offers the same flexibility for weekend trips, with a PVC-lined pocket to separate wet clothing from everything else.
