June 21 2011
Tahiti Tourisme North America was honored with the 2011WAVE Award in the category of “Best Destination for a Romance Vacation” on June 2 in Beverly Hills as part of the TravelAge West WAVE (Western Agents’ Votes of Excellence) Awards.
More than 126 companies, individuals and destinations were celebrated by the readers of TravelAge West at the WAVE Awards ceremony. Honorees were recognized in 47 categories that spanned the cruise, tour operator, airline, hotel and resort and destination travel fields. The awards gave travel agents in the Western U.S. the opportunity to recognize the outstanding qualities and services of their travel supplier partners.
Travel agent professionals throughout the 14 Western states and readers of TravelAge West were invited to vote on the best-of-the-best from a list of Editor’s Pick award recipients that were chosen after careful review by Editor-in-Chief Ken Shapiro and the editorial team of TravelAge West. Review methods included product analysis, on-site visits, a survey of a select group of travel agents and online research.
“As in past years, the editorial staff undertook hours of research and looked at a wide range of factors in making our picks,” said Shapiro. “The companies acknowledged with our Editor’s Pick designation provide travelers with truly exceptional experiences.”
At the black-tie event, guests dined on a four-course meal while being treated to a multimedia presentation of the award recipients.
“The WAVE Awards are a celebration of excellence in travel products, services and destinations,” said Michelle Rosenberg, publisher of TravelAge West. “This year’s WAVE winners have consistently demonstrated excellence within the travel marketplace.”
TravelAge West will also feature Tahiti Tourisme North America in a special WAVE Awards Spotlight Issue due out in June 2011.
“Tahiti Tourisme North America is honored to again be named the best destination for a romantic vacation in 2011. We thank our industry partners that make the travel experience to Tahiti and her islands beyond the ordinary,” says Al Keahi, Managing Director, Tahiti Tourisme North America.
