In this time of uncertainty, we face disruption to the Tourism and Creative industry, but there is also an opportunity. During TravelHack, participants can share ideas, collaborate, and create solutions that will change how Travel and Creative products and services will look in the future.
We encourage you to create digital, tech and design solutions for the Travel and Creative industry to provide innovative, safe and sustainable experiences for everyone.
Within 48 hours, TravelHack participants will have a chance to form interdisciplinary teams to generate new, innovative ideas, build a prototype and evaluate the business potential of the solution.
A sprint-like event where participants team up and create solutions to real-life challenges in an intense period of time. Using creativity, technology and mentoring, the weekend results in prototypes, fresh new concepts and innovative usages of tech.
What is an online/virtual hackathon?
In an online or virtual hackathon, all participants are remotely connected. Irrespective of their location, hackathon enthusiasts can participate and demonstrate their skills on an online hackathon platform using various tools.
Who can participate?
We welcome people of all job descriptions, whether you're a designer, developer, marketer, entrepreneur or project manager. Diverse groups often work incredibly well together to produce the best results.
Do I need to be able to code?
You can participate with any level of IT skills, even if you haven't written a single line of code. Understanding the basics of IT is a plus.
During this hackathon can I work only on new ideas or on an existing product or solution?
It will be allowed to develop both new ideas and improve existing products and solutions. In the case of existing solutions, especially will be evaluated the work done during the hackathon. This hackathon is not intended to promote commercially available products.
How big should be the team?
We find that a team of three to five works best. It's large enough to have diverse skills, yet small enough to get to know your team members well in a short space of time.
What if I sign-up alone or don't have a team?
Don't worry if you don't know anyone attending. Teams will be formed before hackathon and during hackathon. There will be enough time to mingle and get to know other attendees and ideas.
In what language will the event take place?
Please note that the main communication during the hackathon will be in Latvian. With the organisers, it is possible to communicate in Latvian and English. Final presentations should be prepared in Latvian or English.

Yes participation is free of charge.
