Ria Money Transfer Unveils New Logo and Launches New Brand Image

BUENA PARK, Calif., July 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ria Money Transfer, a leading money transfer company and subsidiary of Euronet Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: EEFT), unveiled today its new visual identity following a holistic rebranding effort. The new logo and visual concept are inspired by the company’s spirit and honor its diverse customer base, workforce, and the lives touched by Ria’s expansive geographic and digital network.

Ria’s brand transformation establishes a more dynamic dialogue with its customers. Aside from a new logo and contemporary visual concept, the company has redefined its messaging scope to better connect with its diverse customer base. While Ria has always been about opening ways for a better everyday life, it is now the company’s defining purpose and will guide the evolution of the business into the future.

Today, people are on the move more than ever before. For a better future. For a better everyday life. As a leading money transfer company, Ria is committed to helping businesses and individuals prosper through the safe, convenient, and affordable transfer of funds. By providing a fast and reliable service at a great value, Ria gets money to where it matters.

“Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, and we want our new brand identity to reflect that,” said Shawn Fielder, CEO of Ria Money Transfer. “ Through our new brand concept, we honor the journeys and sacrifices of our customers. For us, it’s about providing more than just a money transfer service. Our goal is to strengthen our close-knit relationships with our customers and make them feel safe, appreciated, and understood.”

Introducing the new Ria Brand

Purpose: What’s behind Ria’s drive

Ria opens ways for a better everyday life. This is the company’s purpose and driving force behind why, how, and what it does. No matter where customers are in the world, Ria gets your money to where it needs to go – quickly, simply, and affordably.

Logo: Putting our customers front and center

The new Ria logo lets customers take center stage. The “i” symbolizes the individual, with the “r” and “a” representing Ria’s support. The dot in the “i” when extrapolated from the logo serves as a standalone orange disc, an element that speaks to the connection and support customers can achieve through using Ria’s services.

The Orange Disc: Bringing the logo to life

What was once an image of an interconnected globe has been simplified to an orange disc that represents the story of each money transfer. The emphasis is no longer on the world in its entirety but on the customer’s individual world and what each person can do for herself or himself and their loved ones when given the necessary tools.

Photography and Illustrations: Communicating across borders

Ria’s new photography style is simple and powerful, effectively highlighting the message it’s looking to convey. The use of illustration also gives Ria the flexibility to connect with diverse audiences, cultures, and age groups through inclusive and emotionally compelling content.

The rebranding also comes as a response to Ria’s expanding global footprint as well as its digital product and expansion strategy.

“When you start a company, your focus is on serving customers and creating products or solutions that fit their needs,” said Juan Bianchi, CEO of Euronet’s Money Transfer Segment. “Now, after nearly 35 years in the industry, we’ve realized that Ria has become much more than just a business. It’s an idea, a community. We needed a brand identity that reflected what Ria means to people and, more importantly, what people mean to Ria.”

For Ria, the most important aspect of its business is being a part of its customers’ lives. Ultimately, this is what the new brand tries to illustrate: An orange glow working behind the scenes to make loved ones feel close and goals feel attainable.

Trip.com Group CMO Bo Sun named one of the top 50 brand marketers in APAC

Trip.com Group CMO Bo Sun named one of the top 50 brand marketers in APAC

Trip.com Group CMO Bo Sun

SINGAPORE, July 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trip.com Group CMO Bo Sun has been named one of the top 50 most influential and purposeful marketers in Asia-Pacific, by industry leading publication, Campaign. Sun is recognized as the only finalist from OTA, among the marketing elites from different industries, such as Coca-Cola, Alibaba and Google.

Sun joined Trip.com Group in 2010 and currently serves as Chief Marketing Officer. Sun has a wide remit looking after digital marketing, brand marketing, destination marketing, content marketing, advertising as well as public affairs.

To say 2020 is a tough year for online travel agencies such as Trip.com Group would be an understatement. Like many industries, the travel industry has suffered substantially from the impact of COVID-19 with border restrictions in place and air travel grinding to a holt. However, this unprecedented global pandemic did not deter Sun, instead he threw all of his energy into efforts to revive the travel industry.

Sun launched a ‘travel revival plan’ in China in March, with RMB 1 billion (US$141 million) committed by Trip.com Group. And when China eased the travel ban in late April, Sun shifted the brand’s efforts towards matching pent-up consumer demand for travel after being stuck at home for over four months. Trip.com Group also started online streaming from March, promoting domestic travel along with local products. With a series of marketing events that included asking their Chairman to do livestreaming wearing a wig, Trip.com Group found an innovative way of getting back into the limelight.

Sun didn’t stop there. Last week Trip.com Group announced a range of new initiatives to reinvigorate travel, as part of its online “Travel On” launch event. Trip.com Group was joined by more than 70 representatives from over 200 industry partners for the launch of the industry-wide initiative, which attracted an audience of over 1 million viewers worldwide.

“I’m humbled to feature in this top 50 list alongside some of the very best marketers in APAC.” said Sun. “It has certainly been a challenging year so far but I hope our Travel On initiative will help play a part in reviving the industry. Initial results show we’re making a big difference with not only strong sales from our discounted hotels, flights and attractions, but we’re also offering the consumer peace of mind with flexible advance bookings and new safety standards.”

Sun’s inclusion in Campaign’s top 50 most influential and purposeful marketers in APAC is just one of many industry recognitions in recent years. In 2017 Sun was awarded the Annual Influential Figure at the Great Wall Awards, in 2018 the Xi’an government granted Sun Consultant for the travel development of Xi’an, and last year Sun was named Innovative Figure of Ecological Forces by Harvard Business Review China and Tencent Marketing Institute.

About Trip.com Group:

Across its platforms, Trip.com Group enables local partners and travelers around the world to make informed and cost-effective bookings for travel products and services, through the aggregation of comprehensive travel related information and resources, and an advanced transaction platform consisting of mobile apps, Internet websites and 24/7 customer service centers.
