A Monumental Moment For Uniglobe
When UNIGLOBE Travel (Eastern Canada) held its first annual conference since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Toronto this past weekend, Dean Dacko, Regional President of the group, took the opportunity to announce that Uniglobe Travel (Eastern Canada) has formally acquired the territory rights for all of Canada and will rebrand itself as Uniglobe Travel (Canada) effective immediately.
During his opening presentation, Dacko emphasized that this is a monumental moment in the 40+ year history of the Uniglobe Travel brand in Canada and represents a new beginning for an organization that is already recognized as one of the most successful corporate and leisure retail travel brands in Canada.
Dacko told his audience of 190 travel agency owners, managers, travel advisors and preferred supplier partners, that: “The strength of this new national position will enhance our ability to accelerate our growth right across the country from coast to coast to coast.”
Martin Charlwood, President & COO, Uniglobe Travel International LP, also addressed the group, telling them that: “We are very supportive of today’s announcement regarding the formation of the new Uniglobe Travel (Canada) Region.”
Charlwood continued: “Previously, Uniglobe ran two separate Regions in Canada, one in the east and one in the west, and while there was often co-operation between the two entities, this newly combined Canada-wide Region will be able to take advantage of many synergies that will help drive Uniglobe to new heights in Canada. In fact, we’re coming back full circle to the early days when Uniglobe first entered the Canadian Market as one Region, and we feel strongly that some of Uniglobe’s best days here in Canada are yet to come.”
Current Regional Owner Frank Dennis Jr. son of past Regional Owner Frank Dennis Sr. delivered a heartfelt tribute to his late father that complimented the success of the region over the past four decades.
He observed that: “Uniglobe Travel has always led the industry with leading edge technology and marketing solutions that allows our members to focus on delivering exceptional customer service that drives increased client growth and profitability. Our ability to deliver value will be greatly enhanced as a national entity and we look forward to strong growth in the months and years to come.”
