|FEBRUARY 14, 2012 (New York City) - Pacific Holidays, Inc., has been honored with a TravelAge West 2012 Editor’s Pick Award in the category of Best Tour Operator, Asia, as part of the TravelAge West WAVE (Western Agents’ Votes of Excellence) Awards.
Now in its seventh year, the goal of TravelAge West’s WAVE Awards is to give travel agents in the Western U.S. the opportunity to recognize the outstanding qualities and services of their travel-supplier partners.
The Editor’s Picks were chosen by Editor-in-Chief Ken Shapiro and the entire 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.
“Travelers in the West have a unique perspective and they are very travel savvy,” said Shapiro, “so Western travel agents need to work with the best companies in the industry in order to please their customers. As the number-one travel trade magazine in this dynamic region, we look forward to the opportunity to acknowledge the hotels, cruise companies, tour operators, destinations and others that go above and beyond.”
In addition to this distinction, Editor’s Pick honorees are also in the running for a WAVE Award, to be determined by a TravelAge West readers’ choice poll conducted during the month of April 2012. The voting is open to readers of the publication, as well as to all visitors to the magazine’s Web site, TravelAgeWest.com.
Editor’s Pick recipients will be celebrated at the WAVE Awards gala dinner on June 7 at the Four Seasons Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, Calif., where the readers’ choice winners will be announced as well. TravelAge West will produce a special WAVE Awards Spotlight Issue, due out in June 2012, highlighting each nominated company.
“We are honored to receive this award from TravelAge West,” said Jerry Chang, Pacific Holidays’ president, “and we deeply appreciate this recognition by the Western travel agents.”
