Las Vegas, NEVADA -- December 23, 2003 -- The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) yesterday released its list of finalists for the 19th Annual Codie Awards, selecting VEGAS.com as a finalist for best online consumer service. As the only travel web site selected, VEGAS.com joins Codie finalists in other categories including AT&T, Adobe, Macromedia, Microsoft, Vivendi Universal, Nokia, Sybase, The Wall Street Journal and many more. Last year, NationalGeographic.com was selected as the winner in the online consumer service category.
The 2004 Codie Awards showcase the software and digital content industry's finest products and services and honor excellence for corporate achievement and philanthropic efforts. During the nomination period, which closed in October, over 800 nominations from more than 600 companies were submitted. The number of nominees represents a record high for the program.
"In light of the intense competition this year, to be named a Codie Awards finalist is a tremendous honor and an important achievement," says Ken Wasch, SIIA President. "SIIA is proud to recognize these companies as true leaders in their fields."
"We take pride in VEGAS.com's nomination as a finalist," said VEGAS.com President Howard Lefkowitz. "This is a testament to the hard work that encompasses every facet of the company, including the software and programming that goes into the site; the marketing and process of making people aware of VEGAS.com both online and offline; the user interface and graphics on the site which give us our distinct look and usability; the superior content and information that establishes us as the Vegas experts; the customer service and call center which provide information and assistance; and our tourism partners who represent the entire Vegas experience," Lefkowitz continued.
