To encourage new ideas and entrepreneurial activities in the travel technology industry, the Texas-based company, Sabre, hosted #Destination Hack Brasil. The first developing competition event focused on travel and tourism was part of the São Paulo Tech Week 2015, November 6 through November 8 at the Distrito Venture Building Campus in São Paulo.
In an effort to unite creativity and technology, and leverage Brazil’s vocation for innovation and entrepreneurship, #DestinationHack Brasil offered a unique experience for developers in Latin America. “Brazilians are able to adjust according to the needs of the market. We often have to reinvent ourselves and to think outside of the box in order to expand our businesses and create a new travel experience for our consumers,” said Alexandre Cordeiro, marketing manager at Sabre.
