Hackaton: Travel Tech 2019

The competition of innovative projects for the development of tourism Hackaton: Travel Tech was held in Nur-Sultan last weekend 

During the two-day competition, participants had to develop an IT product that would answer the questions raised by partners and organizers.

Astana Convention Bureau asked participants to create an application to ensure a comfortable stay of guests in the capital, as well as a platform for a database of ongoing and conducted MICE events in the city of Nur-Sultan.

In addition to the Bureau, the jury included the Chairman of the Science Foundation, representatives of “Here”, “ Astana Innovations”, and private investors.

As a result, the winner was the team Tiami/o with the project TourAR. As a reward, the group received 250 000 tenge and tickets for the next Comic Con. Their project allows you to make an AR journey to the exact place, observing the landscape and objects around you in real size, without leaving home.

The second place and the prize in the amount of 150 000 tenge were taken by the team SuInnovations, which developed a service to automate data on events in the region. The third place and 100 000 tenge went to the Loogle team, which created a "Virtual tour operator" - an application for compiling complex routes for tourists.

Congratulations to all winners and wish them success in implementing these projects!
