Could Cape Town be more awesome?

Did you know that more than 70% of people visiting Cape Town visit the same ten tourist sites? We know there's more to the City, but can we help people find new things to do and new places to see?  

Together with the City of Cape Town, CiTi will host a hackathon from 27 – 29 October 2017 at the Khayelitsha Bandwidth Barn. The City's Open Data Hackathon will challenge teams to solve real problems faced by Cape Town's tourism industry.

Text Box: Join Us!

 

 

Using a range of data available on the City of Cape Town's Open Data Portal as well as provided specifically for this event, teams will grapple with the brief: “Design a digital product that improves the discoverability of unique experiences for tourists in Cape Town.” 

These days, most tourists are planning their own itineraries using online tools. We can attract more people to different parts of Cape Town and support more small business and "last mile" providers by making information easier for digital travellers to find.

If you have tech and data skills, design skills, or just a passion for the tourism industry, we want you! Join us for a weekend of smart people, fun-fuelled problem-solving, and fantastic spot prizes.
