Hackathon

BIBA 2018 hosted the ground-breaking BIBA hackathon, when eight teams from across insurance and tech backgrounds worked against the clock to find solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing brokers today.

This year the Hackathon is Back-athon with even more opportunity for everyone at the event to play a part!

The hackathon challenge will run all day on Wednesday when the participants will be given their challenges before spending six hours working collaboratively with their teams and the roving experts supplied by BIBA to come up with some ground-breaking innovations!

Do make sure that you make some time to take a look at the action as it happens in the Hack Zone, our purpose-built ideas box in Central Foyer – the teams will welcome some support! At the end of the day the judges will select the best three ideas to be presented in a dedicated hackathon session on Thursday morning OPEN TO ANYONE AT BIBA 2019 where the audience will be able to vote for their favourite.
