Event description


UPDATE: Tickets are selling fast and we will be closing sales soon due to space restrictions. We have a strong response from Kuala Lumpur and will have hackers coming down from across the border!

1) Always On

As more businesses come online and operations go 24/7, commercial parks need to stay 'on' as well. How can parks be re-equipped to continue providing value to its tenants round the clock?

2) Refining Residents' Experience

The workforce is getting younger, thus changing their consumption needs within their workplace. What changes can be made to the tenants' daily interactions with the commercial park?

3) Security in a New World

Technology advancements often brings two sides to a coin. As security threats become more complex and advanced, how can parks ensure the safety and integrity of their facilities?

1) What is the focus of the hackathon?

The Park of the Future Hackathon is focused around privately owned industrial/office parks that can be improved to better serve tenants, and make management easier for landlords through tech solutions. Solutions could be anything from IoT, to platforms, to analytics.

2) Is there a limit to how many people should be in a team?

Individuals and teams of 2 to 5 members can participate.

3) What if I already have an idea that I would like to work on?

Having an existing idea you'd like to work on is great! But in the spirit of fairness we would have to assess that you did not have existing product development work done prior to the hackathon for you to be qualified for prizes. However, you can still participate in the pitching session.

4) Is staying for the hack overnight compulsory?

No, but it is highly recommended in order for you to have ample time to prepare your prototype and pitch.
