Description

Join us for Hilton Pitch event - Wednesday 2nd May 2018

On Wednesday 2nd May we will be hosting a very special #TalkTravelTech pitch night in partnership with Hilton.

Out of a large pool of applications, we will hear from the top five brightest start-ups, developing innovative ways to enable consumers to spend less time booking and more time doing. Finalists will bring to life their solutions in front of a carefully selected panel of industry leaders and the Hilton team. From these pitches, we’ll identify leading innovators in the travel and hospitality start-up scene.

Those who pitch will not only have the chance to work with Hilton – across their portfolio of more than 5,200 properties and over 856,000 rooms in 105 countries and territories – on developing their product, but the winner will also be awarded with a £14,000 cash prize.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from and network with the cutting-edge of hospitality innovation!

Our judges
