Trendgruppen Design TV – ENG

February 08, 2021
Trendgruppen PR, Sweden''s leading PR agency within interior design, launches a new concept, an international ”TV channel" for design news
During Stockholm Design Week, Trendgruppen PR launches a new concept, Trendgruppen Design TV. Every day, Monday through Friday at 3 pm, a 15-minute-long episode will be broadcasted with design news. The design news, which normally would have been communicated at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair or at closed press events are now offered digitally and to a broad audience. Behind the initiative is Trendgruppen PR''s founder and strategist, Karin Sköldberg.

"The pandemic has made us rethink and offer new ways to communicate! During the spring and summer of 2020, virtually all of the agency''s events were cancelled. There was time for reflection and a desire to do something new. During the autumn, we switched to offer digital press events, and achieved brilliant results. Basically all of our customers have significantly increased sales and I am confident that our rapid transition to digital communication has been a strong contributing factor ", says Karin Sköldberg, CEO of Trendgruppen PR.

"The Trendgruppen Design TV is inspired by the morning sofas on TV – personal, informative but also easy going. Our experience is that few people appreciate long, digital broadcasts with hard-to-access information. We wanted to create and offer something more accessible and fun – striving to offer an experience that is as close to an IRL-event as possible", continues Karin Sköldberg.

The Trendgruppen Design TV will also be more inclusive than the closed press events that have been held during previous years in connection to Stockholm Design Week. To reach a wide audience, all episodes will be in English and everyone is welcome to sign up, free of charge.

The studio is built in Trendgruppen PR''s showroom in central Stockholm. To create a nice feeling, cool and upcoming architect studio, Aska Arkitekter, were hired for set design. The guests are interviewed by Swedish Trend Expert, Stefan Nilsson.
