Best Hobby Software Award Given To Vacation Designer 2006
July 21, 2006
DENVER, COLORADO, USA -- July 21, 2006 -- At the annual Shareware Industry Conference (SIC) held from July 12th to the 15th at the Denver Technological Center, Vacation Designer 2006 was honored with the award for Best Hobby or Personal Interest Software.  The Shareware Industry Awards Foundation (SIAF) created this event to recognize outstanding software products that utilize the try-before-you-buy model of marketing.  Each of the awards is voted on by members of the software industry and presented on the last night of the conference.  Other nominees and winners announced at the evening banquet included Microsoft, Adobe, and WinZip, who all offer trial versions of their best selling software solutions.  Today, most software sold by both small independent companies and large corporations is marketed as shareware, and offers a high quality, user friendly, and safe computing experience.

Scott Petoff, President of Meliovation and publisher of Vacation Designer, was present to receive the award.  This was the second consecutive nomination and first win for Meliovation who have produced the Vacation Designer line of software products for the past three years.  The latest version was updated for 2006 and guides travelers to plan the perfect trip to destinations in North America and Europe.  After building a custom day-by-day trip itinerary guided by the travel research tools, each traveler can print a detailed schedule and take it with them.  The power of Vacation Designer is in the freedom to search for travel deals and make reservations at any website including Expedia, Travelocity, and Orbitz, while staying within a total trip budget.
