Theme event: Tourism and Hospitality

Tourism & Hospitality industry is the theme for GovHackFNQ

With our local tourism market heavily favouring the international market GovHack FNQ is in an ideal position to capitalise on the multi-lingual nature of of our international arrivals.

With over 2 million international and domestic tourists a year visiting Cairns and the Far North have a real advantage in the development of short stay apps such as AirBnB. Cairns is also the ideal base for building logistical/travel management systems in the international sense of the word.

Our city with its international airport so close to town makes it an ideal flyin/flyout market for idea developers and techheads alike who enjoy building their dreams in the Tropical North & Barrier Reef Tourism Market.

What is Govhack?

Governments collect and publish enormous amounts of data, but have limited resources to get it into the hands of their citizens in engaging ways.

GovHack is an event to draw together people from government, industry, academia and of course, the general public to mashup, reuse, and remix government data.

GovHack is about finding new ways to do great things and encouraging open government and open data.

GovHackFNQ are a bunch of FNQ based IT people interested in GovHack related activities.

GovHackFNQ is a participatory project please
