About us

Since its inception, Logimonde Media has strived to be the go-to resource for travel professionals in Canada.

Founded in 1992, Logimonde Media launched its three websites – PAXnews.com, PAXnewsWest.com and PAXnouvelles.com – between 2002 and 2007. All three produce unparalleled coverage of the latest industry information, updates and events, keeping our subscribers up to date on the latest industry trends, travel deals, promos, loyalty programs, webinars, contests, promotions, appointments and career activities, while offering in-depth profiles and interviews from key figures in the Canadian travel trade.

Logimonde Media is the only travel trade media company whose online subscriber lists have been audited by the national accounting firm Deloitte LLP.

With PAX magazine, Logimonde Media rounds out its industry-centric product range. PAX is printed 10 times per year in both English and French, with each edition featuring different content prepared by the editorial teams.

Logimonde also features the QuickPresse e-blast service, the event management service, QuickRSVP.ca and QuickQuestions.ca, a new interactive website allowing you to conduct online surveys.

Founder

Uguette Chiasson, founder of Logimonde Media.

Uguette Chiasson is the founder of Logimonde Media, a Canadian business offering various services to the Canadian travel industry.

She began her career in publishing in 1986, with the launch of a business magazine in Quebec which issued more than 35,000 copies each month, sold at newsstands and via subscriptions.

In the early stages of the Internet boom, Chiasson had the foresight to develop QuickPresse, a fax and e-mail distribution service. This service became popular in Quebec, and eventually expanded to other provinces. Since 1992, Logimonde has launched three travel trade e-magazines, which became known as ExpressVoyage.ca, HelloWestTravel.com and TRAVELHotNews.com, then rebranded in May 2014 as PAXnouvelles.com, PAXnewsWest.com and PAXnews.com respectively.
