Travel Forward Tech Event hosts its first #HackTravel Hackathon with innovative solutions

Published on : Tuesday, September 17, 2019

A hackathon, well known amongst technology experts globally, is a non-stop digital product development event, where problems are posed in order to come up with innovative solutions.


As tech innovation is constantly changing, it creates both new benefits and pain points for travellers. It is important therefore to understand and solve these challenges as efficiently as possible.




Travel Forward have teamed up with hackathon specialists Winding Tree to host their latest #HackTravel event.




The #HackTravel hackathon will bring together forward thinking travel industry players such as travel start-ups, airlines, hotels and software companies to collaboratively tackle real world industry pain points. Travel Forward #HackTravel will be a platform for self-expression and innovative perspectives through technology.




Richard Gayle, Exhibition Manager for Travel Forward explained: “We’re delighted to be working with the well-established Winding Tree to host such a dynamic, forward thinking and industry changing event such as the #HackTravel hackathon.




“Whether you are an OTA, hotel, software vendor or an independent travel tech expert, there are great challenges to take part in for both technical and business hackathon participants. This is a unique opportunity to share the problem solving process with people you would not normally be able to, to learn from and collaborate with peers and create actionable solutions at pace.




“So we look forward to welcoming all experts, so that collectively we can turn ideas that will move the Travel industry forward, into reality.”




Pedro Anderson, COO, and Co-Founder of Winding Tree, said: “We are honoured to be able to participate in World Travel Market in such a profound way. WTM London is one of, if not the, biggest event in the travel industry, and we’ll be able to showcase our technology to an audience like never before.




“Each Hackathon we’ve held in the past has had impressive results, showing the possibility and necessity for open-source technology among travel and hospitality companies, and I’m sure this one will be no different.”




The technology-focused conference, exhibition and Startup Showcase is co-located within WTM London at ExCeL London from 4 – 6 November 2019.
