City of Industry, Calif. - Newegg.com will showcase the latest CE and IT products on more than 100 campuses this fall as part of a two-month college tour.
The annual road show, sponsored this year by Canon, Cooler Master, McAfee, Microsoft, Toshiba and Newegg-owned Rosewill, will visit schools in Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Seattle, among other markets.
During the tour, Newegg will highlight new products and back-to-school "essentials," such as notebooks, cameras and software, and students will be invited to learn more about the devices and receive complimentary giveaways.
In conjunction with the tour, Newegg has also launched a sweepstakes that's open to all college students. Six prize bundles will be awarded, including a Toshiba Satellite notebook, Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit software, McAfee Total Protection 2011, a Canon EOS Rebel T3i d-SLR, and computer cases from Cooler Master and Rosewill.
Said Bernard Luthi, Newegg's marketing, web management and customer service senior VP, "We're visiting these colleges to make sure students will look to Newegg as their â€˜one-stop shop' for back-to-school shopping. With our large selection of consumer electronics products and extensive library of valuable customer reviews, Newegg has everything college students need to get geared up for a successful start to the new school year."
