Gastro
Hackathon

6. November 2021 | Salzburg, Austria 🇦🇹

Apply until 26.10.2021 - 19:00

24hrs.
Develop against the clock

Come and join our efforts to face the biggest crises in tourism, the food service industry and gastronomy - it will be a weekend of tackling the biggest challenges of the industry with technology. This will not be an online event.

The goal of the 2nd GastroHackathon is to solve gastronomy oriented challenges and create new solutions in a rapid prototyping format. To achieve this goal, four partners will host real-life challenges and participants (startups, students, innovators, entrepreneurs) will develop new prototypes in only 24 hours directly at the GAST Messe'21 in Salzburg.

Needless to say there is a probability that this event will not happen, but we are optimistic and have the space to do it if the situation allows.

The Challenges.
Challenging but fun

Technology was always a fundamental part of the restaurant and hotel business, enabling better customer service and more time for enjoyment and consumption. At the Hackathon participants have an opportunity to take a step into the future of gastronomy by solving specific real-life challenges of partner companies:

Hotel Challenge

How can technology support the hotel industry to enable a safe stay?

Restaurant Challenge

How can technology help to keep restaurants afloat when the next wave hits?

Tourism Challenge

This summer we already feel the limited possibilities, how can you bring tourism areas to the guests?

Food Challenge

How can you service people that are not good cookers to get better with technology.

Participants.
You are welcome!

Participants are students, employees, freelancers, experimenters. Different perspectives help creating new ideas.
