2016 TravelAge West Wave Awards, Trendsetters
Hey, we’re on the cover of the Rolling Stone! I’m gonna buy five copies for my mother.
Well, not really. But we’ll soon be featured as winners in the Trendsetters category of the 2016 TravelAge West Wave Awards. 😊
The official publication isn’t out yet, but here’s a special sneak peek…
Each year, the TravelAge West Trendsetter Awards recognize travel agency leaders who make an impact on the industry and the community. Two finalists in each category are invited to and honored at the WAVE Awards as guests of their sponsor.
Entries are reviewed and voted on by the sponsors and editorial staff of TravelAge West. Furthermore, suppliers who sponsor the Trendsetter Awards do so not just for publicity – they support the travel agent community and wish to honor those who are making significant strides in the industry.
