From 10 to 12 April, VINCI and Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur are organising an innovation competition aimed at designing digital applications around the customer experience in stadiums, airports and motorways. The hackathon will take place over 48 hours at the Allianz Riviera stadium in Nice. Transport, travel, matches & shows: innovating to optimise the customer experience Catching a plane, taking the motorway to get to work or go on holiday, watching a match or a concert in a stadium – all these activities raise questions touching on professional life and leisure that deserve practical solutions adapted to each case. How can you optimise your trip to get to your destination under the best possible conditions? How can you simplify your arrival at the venue or place and make the most of the time available? How can you share and prolong the experience with your community? To answer these questions, VINCI is organising a "hackathon" (a digital creation marathon) which will bring together for 48 hours start-ups, developers, graphic designers, students and ideas sponsors around reinventing the customer experience for travellers and spectators. The stakes: €10,000 in prize money to be shared between the three winning teams – but also the opportunity to be talent-spotted, supported and coached by VINCI teams with the idea of trialling the new services imagined under real conditions. The general public called on to vote for the best application On Sunday 12 April after 48 hours of innovation, a jury composed of experts, start-ups, and VINCI partners and employees will select the finalists. Each of these teams will be asked to produce a short video presenting the service they have devised and the public will be invited to vote online for the winner. Apart from the Public Prize, the jury will also choose two other winning teams, to be announced on Tuesday 5 May 2015. Information and enrolment on vinci.bemyapp.com
