A ‘hackathon’ in London is being hosted by Sabre to challenge developers around the world to create new technology and apps that could reinvent global travel.
Destination Hack will be held on June 27-28. The 24-hour, non-stop challenge has been set for developers to create technology for the travel industry that inspires and potentially takes travel to the next level.
Participants will be using Sabre Dev Studio APIs, as well as other open technology provider tools, and will compete against the clock and each other for a chance to win £10,000 in prize money.
More than 250 developers from as far as Australia and the Middle East have signed up for the event.
Sabre Travel Network president, Greg Webb, said: “Travel is a vibrant, fast-growing and dynamic industry, where technology is having a big impact on the way people travel.
“Technology has helped simplify what is a very complex industry and it is also transforming the conventional travel experience, making it more personal, enjoyable and in some cases more creative and fun.
“It’s the perfect industry for innovation and creativity, and that’s why we are bringing together the best developers from around the world for 24 hours in London. I’m very excited to see what these great minds will produce.”
