Hospitality’s First Hackathon Postponed Until Later This Year
Once rescheduled, the hackathon will invite hackers, computer programmers and software/hardware developers to compete to develop a technology solution that is disruptive and innovative, while optimizing hospitality processes and improving guest experience. The participants will collaborate intensively for 48 hours on a project, interface problem or business solution specific to hospitality. The final determination of possible problems to solve will be made by an advisory council; however HFTP is soliciting suggestions for consideration from the industry at large. Volunteer mentors, speakers, judges and sponsors with hotels in the Austin area are also being solicited to participate. HITEC supporter and known hackathon organizer, hotelRSV, will continue to be actively involved in the organization of the event.
"It's impressive how many issues can be tackled with technology in a disruptive way in just 48 hours. It's all about innovation and HFTP is providing the best platform to make it happen," said David Bertolini, COO of Novohit and co-founder of hotelRSV.
Suggestions for problems and inquiries to participate (speakers/judges/mentors) can be directed to email@example.com.
