Wave Awards 2020

Collette Recognized with 2020 WAVE AWARD FROM TravelAge West

December 11, 2020

December 4, 2020 — COLLETTE was honored with the 2020 WAVE Award in the category of Best Escorted Tour Operator, Europe in the first-ever virtual TravelAge West WAVE (Western Agents’ Votes of Excellence) Awards held Dec. 3.

In addition to adapting the awards to a virtual platform, the editors of TravelAge West changed the focus of this year’s awards — putting the perseverance of the travel advisor community front and center.


“WAVE Awards usually honor the great work of travel suppliers,” said Ken Shapiro, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of TravelAge West. “But this year — given how difficult a time it has been — we thought it was important to center the awards around travel advisors instead by highlighting their inspiring stories of resilience and dedication. And, to their credit, travel companies were in total agreement with that decision.”


“This award is such an honor, during a difficult time in the industry, where we applaud and appreciate the hard work of our travel agent partners, said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, President of Collette. “We’re thrilled to be recognized for Best Escorted Tour Operator, Europe.”


In addition to hearing from top advisors, several agents were acknowledged with special WAVE Awards.


TravelAge West will publish a digital edition dedicated to WAVE Awards coverage on Jan. 11, 2021.
