The Challenge: 24 hours to reinvent travel
Travel is nearly a seven trillion dollar industry — yes, that’s big! Do you have an idea that will change how we fundamentally think about travel? This is your chance to put your idea into play and win big. Bring your creativity and expertise to show the possibilities of where travel could go next.
Challenge #1 – “Social swagger”
As more apps strive to integrate travel and social in innovative ways, at the core is the ability to collaborate and share in a way that is convenient and scalable. How would you approach this challenge differently than the present applications available today?
Challenge #2 – “Travel in a non-travel world”
Due to various technical and business challenges, travel is not as integrated as it could be into other online verticals. Create an application that breaks down the barriers surrounding this untapped cross-industry opportunity.
Challenge #3 – “Mine your own business”
Aggregated and mass-marketed content is the norm, but it’s only the baseline. Using your own industry knowledge, coupled with new intelligent services and market insights, how would you drive value in travel through personalized, data-driven decisions?
Challenge #4 – “The API alchemist”
Sources of content in the online universe are virtually limitless. Using three or more entirely different APIs, create a unique product offering and/or user experience.
