The 17 Futuristic And Amazing Teams At Garage48 Tourism Pärnu Hackathon

There are an amazing 17 teams working on their prototypes and concept here at the Garage48 Tourism Pärnu hackathon at Tartu Ülikooli Pärnu Kolledž. We have projects ranging from air travel transportation to finding a sporting buddy to supporting the local shops to a GPS game etc. It really does pay off to work hard on this weekend, not only because we have amazing prizes for the winning teams and the tourism market is one of the largest in the world, but also because of recent unfortunate events happening in the world. As people are getting more vulnerable for travelling, we need to focus on the good in order to move on. We believe that we need to be more unified and innovative than ever.
So we invite you to watch our live stream of the demo event tomorrow to support the teams and projects. You can stream live the demo event here on our website at 17:30 (GMT+2).

All the ideas in no particular order:

1. Agentizer
Agentizer is the most effective marketplace for travel agents and tour guides! It's a smart and easy online booking engine for travel agents to book tour guides with one time data entry, group messaging and prompt response from guides that accept the job.

Team members: Raimo Matvere - Team Lead, Dana Neemre - Tourism Expert, Kadri Kukk - PR and Marketing, Kristjan Roosild - Development, Riin Kirt - Design

2. ShipItWise
Shipitwise - the easiest way for air travellers to ship bulky items. Air travellers are often faced with a problem. They have to consider fixed size and weight luggage limits by airlines, so they had to limit their shopping, because getting bulky items home is complicated. They also have a problem getting their sports equipment abroad, when going e.g. on a skiing or golf holiday. We provide air travellers with a simple application, where they can order shipping service and let us do the rest. We pick up your items, pack them on the spot and put together the most efficient transportation chain.

We offer local service providers a tool that allows you to set up online sales in 5 minutes, setup is free and the platform is so easy to use and maintain that anyone can do it. You can sell gift cards, event tickets or deal vouchers. Sell either on your own channels (website, emails, blog) or choose from a wide variety of top marketing channels to reach 1M+ new customers.

In addition, Sportimate helps you to effortlessly organize or sign up for new trainings, and even find new training opportunities/locations when traveling. Sportimate helps you to get rid of excuses like “organising football training is too damn hard”, “I don’t have anyone to play tennis with”, "I hate running alone" etc. Sportimate connects you to local sports communities and helps you find trainings wherever and whenever it suits you, with the people you are connected to.
