On Thursday, October 1, 2020, Baxter Media hosted their 2020 Agents’ Choice Awards. Goway was thrilled to be nominated in eight different categories and to attend the virtual event to celebrate with travel industry partners. We came away with several wins and would like to thank everyone who voted for us, particularly our agent partners who’ve worked with us during our 50 year travel journey.
Goway picked up first-place wins in two regional categories: “Asia/Pacific Tour Operator” and “Africa Tour Operator” We also placed second for “Adventure Tour Operator” and third for “Central/South America Tour Operator.” We’re proud of the celebrated work of Moira Smith, VP of Africa & Asia, Shirley Rourke, VP of South Pacific, and their regional teams, as well as all of Goway’s Destination Specialists across all departments. We also couldn’t be more proud of two of our Business Development Managers, Sam Cottar and Aubrey Schmidt, who were recognized with awards at the event.
In addition to these top ranking finishes, we also ranked in the top 10 in several other categories, including “Overall Tour Operator,” “Air Consolidator,” “Motor Coach,” “Hawaii Tour Operator,” and “Europe Tour Operator.” These diverse finishes showcase Goway’s expansive expertise and broad appeal across several destinations and travel styles.
Our success at Baxter Media’s 2020 Agents’ Choice Awards is especially gratifying this year, which celebrates our 50th anniversary as a travel company. It’s humbling to be recognized as one of North America’s most trusted travel providers and to see evidence of strong relationships with our industry partners, without whom our continuing travel journey would not be possible. These strong relationships are the bedrock that allow Goway to offer competitive pricing and commissions, and to continue to make travel dreams a reality.
