Hack Your Trip
12/08/2018 - 12/09/2018$18
Ladies and gentlemen, the Hackathon sign has been turned on. If you haven’t already done so, please read all the details below carefully.
The travel and tourism industry is the fastest-growing economic sector globally and is forecasted to contribute more than 2.6 trillion U.S. dollars to GDP by 2027. Even with tourism being a personal focus and source of income for many people globally, there are still major gaps in the way we experience it.
That’s where you come in. Discover Global Network is looking for you to create innovative solutions in a multi-trillion dollar industry that will create better experiences for the world’s nomads. Whether it be helping people navigate airports or clarifying tip etiquette, we are looking to you to create the next best technology milestone in travel.
Please take your seat, register for a ticket, and make sure your seat back and your laptop are in their full upright positions. And as always, thanks for hacking with us.
