WHEN IS HACK_RETAIL 2020 ?

The main HACK_RETAIL 2020 hackathon event happens from June 12th to 14th, 2020 where hacker teams work on retailers challenges during 40 hours. All the hackers, retailers and e-commerce mentors, technology providers must be physically present on-site. You can find the detailed schedule below.

On June 15th, a private event is held for partner retailers so that they can meet the hacker teams who worked on their challenges, and the other teams, to dig more in-depth on how they could push the implementation of the solutions developped during the hackathon in their ecosystem. Partner retailers can invite other members of their company to meet hacker teams, review their projects, and inspire them for their own challenges.
