SEOUL, May 28, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the launch of its advanced InstaView refrigerators with MoodUP in France. The company hosted a grand picnic on Paris’s iconic Champs-Élysées on May 26 to celebrate the release of two LG InstaView™ with MoodUP™ lineups in France.

Following launches in Spain, Germany and Italy and now France, LG has augmented its outstanding range of InstaView refrigerators with MoodUP with a new bottom freezer – a model that is highly popular among customers throughout Europe. Offering a smart and customizable culinary experience, the company’s color-changing refrigerators are ideal for those who want to express their mood and personal taste in the kitchen.

Dubbed Le Grande Pique-Nique des Champs, the recent Champs-Élysées launch event attracted more than 4,000 people, many of whom had the opportunity to personally experience the innovative features and unique value of LG’s latest refrigerators. LG, with the support from the City of Paris and the Comité Champs-Élysées, turned a section of the world-famous avenue into a large, vibrant picnic area, complete with a 216-meter-long tablecloth. The event presented a variety of entertaining experience zones, including eight kitchen areas, each with a distinct atmosphere delivered in part by the brand-new refrigerators and their color-changeable LED door panels and InstaView lighting.

To enhance Parisian picnickers’ enjoyment of the special day, LG provided picnic baskets containing mats, utensils and other necessities. In addition to savoring the fine food on offer from specially-erected culinary booths, event attendees had the opportunity to interact with the innovative features of LG’s new refrigerator; changing the color of its door panels and playing music on its built-in Bluetooth speaker.

The new InstaView with MoodUP refrigerator lineups offer two compelling choices: a French Door model and a bottom freezer model. LG’s interactive appliances feature cutting-edge functionalities designed to enhance and personalize the customer experience. Via the ThinQ™ app, users can apply up to 170,000 color combinations to the refrigerators’ color-changing LED door panels to create a different look and feel in the kitchen. The new models also incorporate LG’s distinctive InstaView door panel, which improves convenience and energy efficiency by letting users see inside without having to open the door. What’s more, the LG InstaView bottom freezer with MoodUP comes with a 4.3-inch LCD Cover Screen, a touch display that enables the convenient management of various refrigerator settings.

In addition, the company’s innovative refrigerators come equipped with a Bluetooth speaker, enabling users to play songs and podcasts from their favorite streaming apps. Bringing a fun, dance-party vibe to the kitchen, the refrigerators’ LED lighting can even pulse in sync with the music’s beat.* The Color Alarm feature further enhances interaction, communicating with users by making the LED door panels blink or glow brighter in specific situations.

“It’s an honor to host such a unique and enjoyable event on ‘the world’s most beautiful avenue’, and to showcase our innovative, customizable InstaView refrigerators with MoodUP to a French audience,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.

      Company Reinforces Industry Leadership With
      Summit for Technical Consultants From Across Asia

      SEOUL, May 30, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is currently hosting the inaugural LG HVAC Consultant Leaders’ Summit – LG Alumni Event – in Seoul, South Korea (May 28-31). The summit provides heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) consultants from across Asia with the valuable opportunity to benefit from LG’s extensive industry insight and to learn more about its advanced technologies. The first-of-its-kind event is expected to bolster the company’s leadership in the Asia region, which is now the world’s most rapidly-expanding HVAC market.
      Attending the summit were 46 consultants from five Asian countries: Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam. Technical consultants play a vital role in the HVAC business, supporting customers in important areas including system design, installation guidance and maintenance support. By collaborating closely with consultants in each market, LG is able to provide a differentiated customer experience that adds significant value to its industry-leading HVAC solutions.
      With its high-growth potential, Asia has emerged as a key market for the expansion of LG’s HVAC business. Driven by an increase in commercial construction and stricter government energy-saving policies, the region is experiencing escalating demand for smart HVAC systems offering integrated IoT control, building automation and real-time performance monitoring. A respected provider of high-efficiency residential and commercial HVAC solutions based on innovative heat pump technology, LG is working with universities and research institutes to develop the next generation of cutting-edge heat pump systems.
      In 2023, LG announced its plan to more than double the sales volume of its residential and commercial HVAC business by 2030 – an ambitious goal that will secure the company’s position as a global top-tier HVAC solutions provider.
      Through a series of engaging seminars being led by industry experts, the consultants participating in the LG HVAC Consultant Leaders’ Summit – LG Alumni Event will come away with new insight into the trends and technologies shaping the HVAC landscape in Asia and worldwide. Key topics include zero-carbon buildings and HVAC in the era of Artificial Intelligence.
      With Asia as the starting point, LG aims to strategically expand its consultant network around the globe, extending its outreach efforts to regions with high-growth potential, such as Central and South America.
      “It’s a pleasure to be sharing our cutting-edge technologies and industry insights with professional HVAC consultants from some of Asia’s most dynamic markets,” said James Lee, head of the Air Solution Business Unit at LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We will continue to collaborate closely with our consultant network to ensure the best customer outcomes and to grow our influence throughout the Asia region.”
