PLEASE NOTE – Due to low take-up this event has been postponed. We are sorry for any inconvenience this will cause.
Perth wants to boost its tourism offer and wants some help!. They want to see whether some well developed apps could help the city and its wider area bring attractions, trails, events, culture,accommodation, eateries; and activities to life.
They are also interested in bringing the quirky and interesting aspects of the city together, using great images and interesting user generated content through social media.

They have developed the website http://www.perthcity.co.uk/ and there is an app (http://www.mi-perthshire.co.uk/ ) but want some creative minds to take a fresh look at the city and surrounding area, generate new ideas that they could then develop into some new apps, open data or other projects.
As always we’re looking for coders, designers, data wranglers, service users and providers, bloggers – in fact anyone with an interest – to join us for a weekend of ideation, creation, open data and rapid prototyping.
We’ll feed you, keep you stimulated, and provide good wifi. You will leave with a sense of accomplishment, new skills and potentially new friends.
We’ve uploaded a list of hotels in this Perth City Accommodation List.
In addition there are a cluster of B&BS on Dunkeld Road.
Also, just outside the city itself, The Lodge at the Perth Racecourse are offering a flat rate of £90 per night in a Double or Twin bedded room (£45 per person), which also includes a full breakfast. See http://perthlodge.co.uk/dining
