Tahiti Tourisme North America Recognized with 2010 Wave Award From TravelAge West June 1 2010
Tahiti Tourisme North America was honored with the 2010 WAVE Award in the category of “Best Destination for a Romantic Vacation” on June 10 in Beverly Hills as part of the TravelAge West WAVE (Western Agents’ Votes of Excellence) Awards.
More than 125 companies, individuals and destinations were recognized by the readers of TravelAge West at the WAVE Awards ceremony. Honorees were celebrated 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.
“This was an especially tough year for travel,” said Shapiro, “but the companies that received Wave awards rose above the difficulties and delivered exceptional experiences to travelers. They should be very proud of their achievements.”
“Tahiti Tourisme and the islands of Tahiti are honored to be named the best destination for a romantic vacation. All of our industry partners make the travel experience to Tahiti and her islands truly beyond the ordinary, and for that we thank them,” says Al Keahi, Managing Director, Tahiti Tourisme North America.
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. “The Editor’s Pick award recipients have consistently demonstrated excellence within the travel marketplace and this award is a stamp of endorsement by our Editorial Staff.”
