Trendsetters

Open to Agencies and Advisors in all 50 States!

Each year, the TravelAge West Trendsetter Awards recognize travel advisors and travel agencies 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.

 2023 Entries will open in January 2023 

There are four categories to enter (you can enter more than one):

     1. Best Use of Social Media 
     2. Upward Bound, Rock Star Advisor Under 40 
     3. Best Targeted Marketing Idea
     4. Best Group Booking Effort   

Sponsors: AMR Collection, Celebrity Cruises, Globus Family of Brands, Playa Hotels & Resorts
