Hackathon + Conference: Travel Meets Big Data

The first B.U.I.L.D Challenge event titled “Travel Meets Big Data”, consists of a Hackathon + Conference happening between the 18th and the 20th of November 2016 in Dublin’s city centre!

The B.U.I.L.D Challenge is a European series of technology events enabling innovation and the creation of commercially viable ideas and prototypes for various industries. The aim is also to connect entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses with multinational corporations in those specific industries.

The event is organized by the people behind Entrepreneurs Anonymous. EntAnon enables 3500+ Dublin entrepreneurs to meet regularly, usually in the evening of the last Tuesday of the month for sharing experiences and best practices with each other.

The innovative event format of B.U.I.L.D Challenge and Travel Meets Big Data combines the best parts of Startup Weekend, Kaggle competitions and the proven Hackathon formula and combines it with an industry-centric conference, promoting innovation and new solutions to challenges that the travel industry is facing, by using big data.
