Open to advisors and individually owned agencies in all 50 States! Entry form below.

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.
