Do you have an application idea that could revolutionize the digital restaurant experience?

Think of all the steps in the customer’s experience: going to a restaurant, ordering, paying, waiting, eating, leaving... and coming back! From here, there are many ways to enhance or ease one or several aspects of the restaurant experience!

In store experience, gamification, customer loyalty, entertainment, content distribution and consumption are just a few of the categories available for improving the restaurant experience.

100% of the code created belongs to the participants and you will work in teams over the weekend to create your joint concepts.

Looking forward to seeing you there – remember to bring your pyjamas and your sleeping bag - it is a 48 hour event!
