FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Why are you charging for tickets?
Markethon 2016 is a not-for-profit event that's completely volunteer-run. A bunch of restless friends came up with a random idea, saying "Eh quite fun hor if we had a hackathon just for digital marketing." We posted it on Facebook just to see what would happen. The rest is history. In other words, the $ from your tickets go into getting the venue, food, stationery and other logistics.
PRO TIP: If you know of any sponsors that would like to help with defraying costs, please get in touch with us at
