Jongo goes Stateside


Last week, Chloe and I headed on an epic trip to the US of A to showcase the new Jongo T2 and T6 speakers - which will be available at leading North American stores, Walmart, Best Buy and - and announce the arrival of our music service stateside. We covered both the East and West Coast taking in New York, San Francisco and LA which meant taking four flights in just six days!

We were joined by Noam, Pure's US sales director and kicked off our tour at Hearst publishing in New York to meet with Good Housekeeping magazine and followed this with a number of tech and trade publications. The day was rounded off nicely with a dinner with the lovely guys from Laptop magazine at the highly recommended Lupa Italian restaurant.

After our whirlwind tour of the Big Apple, we took a flight to San Francisco and visited numerous titles including the iconic Time magazine. By this time, jet lag was really setting in but we bravely continued onto LA to set up an industry dinner at Soho House. Before setting up for the dinner, we met with a new freelance contact at British pub, the Cat and Fiddle where I noted it's possible to get marmite and proper tea! The dinner was a great success and was attended by tech and music press and music industry guests.
