MISSISSAUGA — TICO’s quarterly newsletter has a brand new look in celebration of the organization’s 20th anniversary.
TICO Talk, designed for Ontario’s travel industry, was first launched in 1999 as a way for travel agencies and wholesalers to learn about consumer protection, regulatory updates and compliance matters. After the revamp, it now boasts a highly visual format that’s as easy to read on phones and tablets as it is on a desktop computer.
“TICO is continuing to enhance its value for Ontario’s travel sector, so it only made sense for us to look at our communications as well,” said Richard Smart, TICO’s president and CEO. “TICO Talk is a key way that we share regulatory news and other updates affecting Ontario’s travel agencies and wholesalers, and we hope that this new digital format will allow us to reach even more members of the industry than before in a cost-effective way.”
The latest edition of TICO Talk highlights the ongoing collaboration between TICO and the government on proposed regulatory updates, as well as TICO’s renewed emphasis on registrant engagement. It also features TICO’s consumer awareness campaign, which encourages Ontarians to book with a registered travel agency or website, and a compliance quiz about disclosure and invoicing.
