So What’s Next For TravelBrands?


And then there were two.

By this time next year Travelbrands’ multiple wholesale companies will be whittled down to just Sunquest and everything else under the all-encompassing Travelbrands’ banner, reports managing editor Michael Baginski in this week’s digital edition of Canadian Travel Press.

Having emerged from creditor protection, it’s full steam ahead for the Mississauga-based tour and retail giant and changes are coming.

Top of the agenda is continuing to cultivate core efficiencies with staff and systems, but also consolidating a myriad of (sometimes overlapping) brands, which range from the aforementioned Canadian classic, Sunquest, to Intair, Holiday House, Fun Sun, Encore Cruises, Boomerang Tours, and many more.

Following last week’s public “thank you” to the trade from owners Frank, Joe and Enzo DiMarinis for supporting TravelBrands during its tumultuous past year while legal agreements were ironed out under the umbrella of the The Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA), Canadian Travel Press sat down with boisterous company president Zeina Gedeon (Z) and senior VP Nino Montagnese (N) for a state of the nation interview at TravelBrands’ Mississauga office, directly across the 401 from Pearson International Airport.
