Here is our playlist for you to jump into the ENTER21@yourplace mood

Have you ever thought about what the sound of travel could be? What could be the sound of travel technology or what could be the sound of our #future? We asked ourselves how could ENTER21 sound like?
Here’s our very own playlist to get you in the right mood, recharge your batteries or open your horizon to new ideas. We aimed for an unobtrusive but forward thinking vibe, giving new perspectives, opening minds and encouraging uprising ideas while creating a positive mood without being too pushy.
Unique enough to set a mood for the entire event or to be listened without the conference, giving the event not just a decent background music but a memorable experience, connected to emotions. A change or jump from a „natural“ or organic feel into the future – technological impact meeting world sounds, futuristic moods and open horizons, enabling minds to get into a flow.
PS: Pay attention to the last three songs. A little wink from us. #change #future #matters – feel free to share it on SocialMedia with the #ifitt #enter21 and #change #future #matters
See you soon!

ENTER21@yourplace

Change – Future – Matters

2020 will remain in history as a year of crisis, unprecedented challenges and new opportunities. Traditionally, the International Federation for IT and Travel & Tourism (IFITT) run the annual ENTER conference to explore ways technology can be used to maximize positive impacts on society, environment, and economy in travel and tourism. With the theme “eTourism: Development Opportunities and Challenges in an Unpredictable World”, the 28th ENTER will combine its best practices with a range of innovations to support the development of new solutions.

ENTER2021 will bring back the conversation between industry representatives, entrepreneurs, destinations, policy-makers, researchers, and students. It will take place 19 – 22 January 2021 to share, discuss and challenge the latest developments in information technology in the fields of travel and tourism. In addition to megatrends in travel, tourism & tech, ENTER2021 expands the range of its topics to the COVID-19 impacts and required solutions. Moreover, to address the challenge of COVID-19, ENTER will take place virtually @yourplace.

In addition to that, ENTER2021 will introduce some pleasant surprises to its participants. For the 1st time, all research, presented at the conference, will be published in an open-access online book. As a result, the generated knowledge will remain publicly available in the eco-friendly form, for free. Secondly, to provide an immersive conference experience, ENTER2021@yourplace will offer all participants a new, interactive and sustainable platform for conversations.

ENTER as a conference singlehandedly developed the global eTourism community and provided the birthplace for many innovations that have transformed the international tourism world. IFITT engages the community and supports a range of events, activities, scholarships and plays a leading role in global engagement to address key challenges in the tourism and technology sphere.
The ENTER conference provides an outstanding venue for researchers, students and industry representatives to come together and share and discuss the latest research in eTourism. This year, all accepted full and short papers will be published in digital conference proceedings by Springer with Open Access, for added visibility and impact.
IFITT and ENTER have been, and are, an incredible environment for the evolution of the whole eTourism field and for my personal development as a scholar. Besides that, it is a wonderful community in which discussions, collaborations, chats and friendships develop almost spontaneously and with great value for all those who are involved
Prof. Rodolfo Baggio, Bocconi University Milan / IT

I was first introduced to the IFITT community as a PhD student attending the ENTER Conference in 2013 and I felt like I belonged immediately.  IFITT, through the ENTER Conference and other initiatives such as the eTourism Master class, creates a unique platform for engaging with a network of academics and professionals in order to discuss cutting-edge topics related to IT and Tourism & Technology. We learn from each other, challenge each other, and together take responsibility for shaping the future of IT and Tourism and wider impacts on society.  I remain an active member of IFITT in order to support IFITT in its Mission and because my involvement in this community continues to lead me to new ideas, new opportunities, and new friendships.

Assistant Prof. Jason Stienmetz, Modul University Vienna / AT
IFITT is the reference community for people interested in eTourism, both from the academia as well as from the industry at large. ENTER eTourism Conference has become a milestone that records changes and trends within the field, and a compass to navigate such a complex and very fast moving filed.

I have attended every single ENTER conference since 1999, and every year I wish I had a clone because there are way too many interesting sessions happening at the same time and too many people I would like to discuss e-Tourism with. I also really enjoy the diversity of the ENTER community.
