The World Travel Market event to be held in London from November 4-6 2019, will feature well over 50,000 industry professionals, corporations and businesses in and around the travel and hospitality industries.

Winding Tree has over the years earned the trust of industry greats who have at a time or two participated in their #HackTravel hackathons. France based KLM airlines and UAE’s Etihad Airways participated in December 2018 and July 2019 respectively.
The hackathons allow the participants to create Proof-of-Concept proposals, code technical hacks and also gain collective expertise, without looking at the size of the company, or whether it’s a start-up or an established enterprise.
This year’s WTM will open the flood gate of opportunity in the travel sector as Winding Tree will offer participants unique skill sets, which includes onboarding demos for its platforms, teach a crash course on decentralization, smart contracts, public blockchains, open sources amidst other exciting offers.
Relating its excitement at the opportunity to reach a global audience, the Chief Operating Officer and Co-founder of Winding Tree Pedro Anderson stated that:
“WTM is one, if not the biggest event in the travel industry, and, we’ll be able to showcase our technology to an audience like never before. Each Hackathon we’ve held in the past has had impressive results, showing the possibility and necessity for open source technology among travel and hospitality companies, and I’m sure this one will be no different.’’
