TravelindustryToday.com is an online travel news publication that is electronically delivered to over 23,000 travel industry professionals each weekday morning. The Canadian-based journal of news and opinions delivers in-depth information, interviews and opinions to help decision makers, executives and industry professionals regardless of position, observe and understand where their industry is going, recognize how it is getting there and to be aware of how those processes can affect their organizations and careers.

Regular columnists, editorials, and even the image banners that accompany each story, are thought provoking, humorous and irreverent.

Our vision is not just to supply a rehash of media releases and PR pamphlets. We aim to be provocative, entertaining, and yes, of course, informative. It’s about ideas and information from and to all sectors of our industry, here in Canada, in the US, and internationally.

TravelindustryToday.com also has a sizable (and ever increasing) number of consumer readers – particularly those who travel frequently. If it is pertinent to the travel industry here, you’ll read about it in TravelindustryToday.com




Jen Savedra began TravelindustryToday.com after a long career and considerable experience in various sectors of travel and tourism. She first gained valuable insight into the electronic and internet aspect of travel by designing, producing and operating the first travel channel for AOL Canada. AOL was at that time the only internet travel channel - a forerunner to Travelocity and Expedia.

An accomplished writer and artist, Jen is dedicated to producing a publication that differentiates itself from the pack. One that pulls no punches, and - along with being a forum for news and ideas - is easy to navigate and always fun to read.

Among the first inductees, and the first woman, named to the Canadian Travel Hall of Fame, Vicki Borenstein is a well known and highly regarded figure in the Canadian travel industry. She began her travel career with CP Air and later, as owner and founder of The Last Minute Club, bought The Wholesale Travel Group from Mike Overs of Pizza Pizza, making her the owner of the two largest individually held travel agencies in the country. Vicki, an acknowledged marketing expert, then ran two brands that were each other’s biggest competitors.

After selling the companies Vicki retired from retail travel to pursue a career in residential real estate and other investment interests. She acted as an advisor and consultant to TravelindustryToday.com from its inception and agreed, finally, to formally take on the role of publisher.

“With writers and columnists of this calibre, the publisher’s job is the easiest one in the house. I see my role as one of keeping the business aspects and vision of TravelindustryToday.com focused as we move forward.”
