TTX- Sabre Appys

Man, it’s a good day to be a developer.  The Sabre Appys are back, now calling Red App developers and B2B developers for a chance to win $10,000 for showcasing their apps.

The 3rd annual Sabre Appys event will be held at the Travel Technology Exchange (TTX) on May 5, 2015, and for the first time, extended to two categories.  This competition now includes Red App developers and online app developers for retail/search companies.  There will be the opportunity to showcase your app to hundreds of potential buyers and a chance to win $10,000.

The Sabre Appys winner in 2013 developed refund.me, a solution for an issue that prevented passengers from getting proper reimbursement for cancelled and delayed flights. The 2012 champion won with limos.com, an app that travel agents use to optimize ground transportation booking for their customers.  Ideas like refund.me and limos.com are what the Sabre Appys are all about – recognizing the next round of pioneers for the travel industry.

If you’re selected to participate in the Sabre Appys, you will also receive video recording of your pitch, two complimentary registrations to TTX, a booth hosted at TTX and logo inclusion on high-traffic websites – all to help your app get noticed.

We want to hear from developers like you about how your apps will solve the challenges travelers are facing.  The best of the best will present their app on the TTX stage, for the chance to win the cash prize and grand title:

  • $10,000 for the “Best App” in the Red App Developer category
  • $10,000 for the “Best App” in the Online Travel App Developer category
  • $2,500 for the “People’s Choice ” overall

Looking for some inspiration for your app? Take a look at some of the new REST APIs launched in Sabre Dev Studio or browse through the Red App Centre to take a look at the latest apps that help travel agents every day.

So, are you ready?  You could be the next coder deemed “Best App” developer at the Appys – not to mention the lucky one walking away with $10,000 cash. You must submit your application by April 3 to be considered.  Visit the Sabre Appys page to learn more.
