      Last month, Europe’s biggest football competition kicked off in Germany. With the final scheduled for July 14, LG offices around the world announced various promotions to give football fanatics an opportunity to experience every kick of the ball as if they were witnessing it in person, all from the sublime comfort of home.
      As our office in the host country, LG Germany implemented various promotion campaigns and highlights to ensure consumers could live every world-class goal and line-breaking assist during the four-week celebration of ‘the beautiful game.’

      On its socials, LG Germany raffled a CineBeamQ projector at the beginning of the championships, making private viewing with friends as immersive as it is memorable. And to let local sports fans enjoy every game to the fullest, the company also shared its Life’s Good Fan Snack recipe for half time. A new Life’s Good Fan Snack recipe is shared every month and can compliment other sport occasions like the championships.

      For those who prefer watching sports on their TV – perhaps because live broadcasts provide replays of every major event and closer shots of the action – LG Germany offered several valuable promotions such as a national cashback campaign for selected LG TVs and soundbars, which replicate the stadium’s atmosphere in the living room, with up to EUR 5,200 cashback.

      LG OLED evo TVs have set new standards in TV processing technology, boasting unbeatable picture quality after years and years of pioneering innovation. In the same way, it takes over a decade of practice until a footballer can even think about turning pro, let alone being called up to the national team. So, who better to show off the prowess of LG OLED evo TV than German footballers Kevin Trapp and Niclas Füllkrug?
      Photo credit:
      Niclas Füllkrug not only enjoys watching the big game on his LG OLED evo TV but also entertains thousands of football fans sitting at home in front of their TV by scoring crucial goals for club and country, like his stoppage-time equalizer against Switzerland in the group stage. LG Germany is proud to work with exceptional footballers both on and off the pitch, celebrating the joy football brings to billions of people around the world during the European Football Championship.
      And, before the championships even began, LG Germany’s football-related marketing activities were launched with a fantastic shirt raffle on its social media channels alongside an online store sales event, offering ten sets of tricots for sports clubs up for grabs.

      With many European players being household names across the world, the excitement for the Euros extends far beyond Europe. Committed to ensuring customers enjoy the Life’s Good experience all year round, particularly during football season, LG Malaysia launched its Frenzy Bola Bola promotion in May. This initiative provided ample opportunities for locals to immerse themselves in the play by scoring some amazing deals on LG products.

      In addition to major savings, customers could also win an exclusive trip to Europe and enjoy rebates of Touch ‘n Go eWallet credits upon purchasing selected LG products. These products include 2024 LG OLED TV, Soundbar, WashTower, Styler, InstaView refrigerator, CordZero vacuum, ARTCOOL air conditioner, and PuriCare Water Purifier and Air Purifier.
      LG’s home entertainment lineups are fully equipped with innovative technology to ensure viewers feel like they’re living the action from kickoff to final whistle without leaving their home. Powered by unparalleled LG OLED technology, the company hopes consumers can cheer on their teams and believe that ‘Life’s Good’ when we can enjoy our greatest passions without limitations.

      Featuring Advanced AI Technologies and Sleek Design, Company’s Expanded Lineup
      of Built-in Appliances Brings Outstanding Convenience and Style to the Kitchen

      SEOUL, Apr. 18, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling its latest built-in kitchen appliances at Milan Design Week (MDW) 2024, taking place in Milan, Italy, from April 16-21. At the center of LG’s Milan showcase are the brand-new Signature Kitchen Suite built-in oven, free zone induction hob and downdraft hood. Boasting innovative, premium design and highly-convenient features, the company’s refined built-in solutions bring exceptional ease-of-use and effortless elegance to the kitchen.
      Signature Kitchen Suite Built-in Oven with Advanced Cooking Technologies
      Debuting at MDW 2024 and designed with European consumers in mind, the Signature Kitchen Suite 60-centimeter (24-inch) built-in oven offers a variety of cutting-edge features and AI technologies to elevate the culinary experience. Equipped with Gourmet AI, the oven can identify what the user is cooking and automatically select the appropriate cooking mode from 130 recipes. Gourmet AI also enables ‘browning’ control for foods such as pizza and steak, actively keeping tabs on the cooking process and notifying users via the ThinQ app as soon as their food is done. Thanks to video-recognition, LG’s intelligent oven can suggest the optimal settings for the dish being prepared, while real-time video monitoring and time-lapse recording make it easy to check on the progress of one’s meal using the ThinQ app.
      Employing enhanced ProBake powered by inverter technology, the new oven delivers uniform heat and fast, efficient cooking with an A++ energy rating. LG’s innovative technology rotates the convection fan back and forth to ensure shorter preheating times, even heating and crispier results when using the oven’s Air Fry mode. The company’s unique InstaView technology further enhances user convenience, making it possible to see inside simply by knocking twice on the oven door.
      Free Zone Induction Hob for Convenient and Flexible Cooking
      The Signature Kitchen Suite’s 90-centimeter (36-inch) free zone induction hob presents next-level flexibility and ease-of-use, allowing users to place any size and type of cookware – such as Paella pans and moka pots – anywhere on its cooking surface.* The new appliance can detect and track the position of cookware, eliminating the need to manually cancel and reapply settings when moving a saucepan or skillet from one part of the cooking surface to another. What’s more, the AI technology embedded in the hob can detect the temperature of cookware and automatically lower the heat when necessary, helping to minimize spills and splatter when boiling water or preparing soups and sauces.
      Expanded Built-in Lineups for Diverse Kitchen Lifestyles
      LG is further bolstering its built-in product lineup with the introduction of the new Signature Kitchen Suite downdraft hood. Made to integrate seamlessly into islands and countertops, the 90-centimeter (36-inch) hood offers a sleek, sophisticated look with its chic black glass and modern frame design. It also provides powerful ventilation, effectively extracting steam and odors for a more pleasant cooking experience.
      Additionally, LG has expanded its portfolio of built-in appliances for the European market. Along with new products, such as an 80-centimeter (30-inch) induction hob and built-in combi refrigerators and microwave ovens, the company now provides a wider range of options within its oven lineups – from more product variation to a greater choice of colors and sizes. Among the new models are the Signature Kitchen Suite 122 centimeter (48 inch)-wide French-door refrigerator and stunning appliances from the Transitional lineup, featuring slim handles and satin stainless steel exteriors with a velvety matte finish. To help customers create a curated kitchen aesthetic, the company offers an array of new finishes for its premium built-in products, with black stainless steel and stainless steel joining the previously-introduced black glass finish.
      “We are thrilled to showcase our latest built-in innovations at this year’s Milan Design Week, demonstrating our commitment to leading new design trends and meeting the diverse needs of European customers,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “LG will continue to strengthen its presence in Europe through an expanded range of built-in appliances delivering style, performance and convenience in the kitchen.”
      Visitors to MDW 2024 in Milan from April 16-21 can experience LG’s latest built-in lineups at the LG booth at Milan Fairgrounds.

Presented inside are the Signature Kitchen Suite built-in portfolio and LG-branded built-in kitchen and home appliance lineups.
      Among the products on display is the newly unveiled Signature Kitchen Suite 60-centimeter (24-inch) built-in oven with Gourmet AI technology.

      Launching in Italy this month, the LG InstaView bottom-freezer refrigerator with MoodUP can be found alongside the French-door InstaView fridge with MoodUP at the company’s Salone del Mobile booth.
      In addition to exploring new LG products, visitors to the company’s booth will have the opportunity to enjoy a lively cooking demonstration hosted by Signature Kitchen Suite. The event features renowned chef Fabrizio Ferrari, who will prepare delectable cuisine using some of the latest built-in appliances from the Signature Kitchen Suite lineup. Other special activities include ‘Zero Wasting Oven Cooking’ with LG’s built-in appliances, wine tasting sessions hosted by sommelier Emanuele Trono, and a unique musical and culinary experience with DJ and cook Daniele de Michele (a.k.a. Donpasta).
      The newly-revealed Signature Kitchen Suite 48-inch French-door refrigerator and the sleek appliances of the Transitional lineup, which include built-in combi refrigerators, induction hobs and microwave ovens, form part of LG’s expanded portfolio targeting the European built-in market.
      Precision and Elegance with Signature Kitchen Suite’s New Capsule Collections

      An exciting development for Signature Kitchen Suite is the collaboration with internationally acclaimed designer Patricia Urquiola, who has designed a sculptural cabinet for the brand’s under-counter drawer fridge. Ideal for modern places, where the boundary between living room and kitchen is frequently blurred or erased, Urquiola’s cabinet transforms the ultra-premium brand’s home appliance into a gorgeous piece of furniture. The amalgamation of Signature Kitchen Suite’s superior technology with Urquiola’s design artistry has resulted in an elevated lifestyle solution with a luxurious, handcrafted touch. The cabinet is available in three modularities and two finishes – wood or Cimento tiles.
      Visitors to the showroom can also see SKINS Club; an ultra-elegant cabinet for the Signature Kitchen Suite under-counter wine cellar designed in collaboration with local Milanese architectural and design firm m2Atelier. A must-have for the connoisseur, the stunning SKINS Club features separate compartments for storing wine and cigars and offers customizable finishes for personalized look.
      An Exclusive Collaboration of Technology and Artistry
      At the Salone dei Tessuti, LG has collaborated with Moooi to create an extraordinary experience where technology and design seamlessly merge. The gallery-concept exhibition space shows off the evolved design and thoughtful features of LG’s groundbreaking home appliances, such as the LG InstaView bottom-freezer with MoodUP, Styler clothing management system, Styler ShoeCase and a PuriCare AeroFurniture table-type air purifier decorated with a new pattern from Moooi.
