Inspirefest, Europe’s leading annual sci-tech conference and festival, which brings together some of the brightest minds in science and technology, took place over two days last week at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre attended by some 3,000 leaders, entrepreneurs, technology professionals, researchers and academics.
This year, the Future Factory at Dublin Airport called on Inspirefest attendees to participate in an exciting mini-hack with their award-winning food and beverage partners, Marqette.
Entrants had the opportunity to make an impact in food tech and have their ideas brought to life as part of a real-life project, Honest Eats which is a new honesty-based food and beverage take-away offer currently being trialled at Dublin Airport.
Over the two days, we saw eight finalists battle it out for the overall prize of two return tickets from our airline partner Cathay Pacific, now flying direct from Dublin Airport to Hong Kong four times weekly.
The winner of the Honest Eats mini-hack for the best concept was Kathryn Parkes who was presented with her prize by Keith Harrison, Sales Manager for Cathay Pacific.
Kathryn wants to make honesty fun with Tap Tap, an animated dancer who taps when you tap and the more taps tapped the more Tap Tap taps….so watch this space!
