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.
