Tnooz and the OpenTravel Alliance are partnering to produce the second THack at the OTA's gathering of travel companies and developers in Las Vegas in April.
THack is Tnooz's unique event that brings together travel industry APIs and the development community to brainstorm new digital travel products and web-based tools.
The full list of APIs made exclusively available for the event include:
THack Vegas will take place in two parts - two weeks before the OpenTravel Advisory Forum via a webinar, and then on-site via a formal presentation of results at the Aria Resort & Casino on April 26.
The THack presentations will be followed by Appy Hour, Tnooz's business social networking event. Tnooz and OpenTravel welcome developers, travel providers and technology companies to participate in THack.
To participate in the formal presentation of results [the THack Showcase] at the OpenTravel Advisory Forum, THack participants must register to attend the Advisory Forum.
Developers that participate in both the pre-event webinar and showcase can attend the OpenTravel Forum for a special rate for $75.
Tnooz encourages Open Travel Alliance member companies to have their development teams register for THack.
The inaugural THack was produced over a two-week period in January and February, culminating in the presentation of six projects at Travel Technology Europe in London on February 8.
NB: Interested travel companies and developers should contact Tnooz editor Kevin May for more information.
NB2: Commercial opps - combined THack-Appy Hour sponsorships - including branding at both THack during the Forum and Tnooz's Appy Hour meet-up, plus web banner advertising on Tnooz's website - are available by contacting Tnooz sales directors Jim Craven (Americas).
