The winners of the CheckINN Revitaliser competition are about to be revealed shortly

The entries submitted by college and university students for the reuse of abandoned buildings or sites that lost their original function for touristic purposes in this year’s competition launched jointly by CheckINN Turisztikai Innovációmenedzsment Kft. and MOME will be presented at the Pitch & Awards ceremony.

After its successful launch last year, the CheckINN Revitalisator idea competition took place again this year. Though the participating student teams came from different programmes, they all shared a focus on design, architecture, and tourism. The completed entries will be presented live at the last stage of the multi-round competition to the professional jury and the general public at a special event on 8 September at the MOME Campus. The points awarded by the jury based on the pitches of the 10 finalist teams will be added to the points previously earned during the competition for the final scores and ranking.
