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 with even more opportunity for everyone at the event to play a part!

The hackathon challenge will run all day on Wednesday and the judges will select the best three ideas to be presented to conference delegates in a dedicated hackathon seminar on Thursday morning where the audience will be able to vote on their favourite.

How to be a Hackster?

We are now recruiting people who would like to take part as team members. We’re looking for normal business people from a variety of functions and firms – you could be an insurer, broker or service provider. You don’t need a technology background as we will supply the best array of data, design and solutions experts and a range of tech support to assist all the teams.

Hacksters will need to be at Manchester Central for the two days (and travel and accommodation will be at your own expense) but the great news is that there is no charge to participate and all team members will be given a complimentary BIBA 2019 delegate pass (worth £2500 + VAT) so that you can also enjoy everything the conference and exhibition has to offer.

If you are interested in getting involved then we’d like to hear from you. We can accept applications from fully formed teams of eight (you should have at least one broker in the team) or if you are a smaller group or even an individual then we will be putting teams together from people just like you. So please send us your details HERE as soon as possible and by February 28 at the latest.
