Hilton College Hospitality Hackathon

The University of Houston Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management, in partnership with Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®), are addressing the immediate need for creative and thoughtful solutions that will assist hospitality companies to put their businesses back on track. To begin this critical dialogue, they are challenging students in hospitality programs across the globe with the first-time Hilton College Hospitality Hackathon. The competition, accepting submissions from June 1 - 30, asks participants to tackle COVID-19 head-on and address the challenges it has posed to all sectors of the hospitality, travel and tourism industry, and to develop solutions to move it forward.

Registration for HC3 is FREE and is now open. The entire Hackathon will be virtual. And there are no travel or related expenses involved, making it logistically simple to assemble teams. Universities are invited to register one undergraduate- and one graduate-level team (master's and doctoral students). Winners will be announced August 8 via livestream.

Two teams will be awarded first-place (undergrad and graduate) and will each receive a $3,000 USD scholarship to be divided equally among members. Teams placing first, second and third will all have the opportunity to present their winning hacks online at a specially-themed HFTP Global Hangout (virtual Zoom meeting), and will be recognized on social media and in other media and industry coverage.
