Every year, hundreds of tourism academics, industry representatives,

government officials, students and entrepreneurs come together to share,

discuss and challenge latest developments in information technology in the

fields of travel, tourism and hospitality. With the theme "eTourism: Towards

a Sustainable Digital Society" the ENTER 2019 conference will focus on

exploring the ways in which technology and tourism together can make our

society more sustainable. We call for latest research and case studies on

emergent and cutting-edge information and communication technology

concepts, applications, and business models to be shared in the conference.


Organized by the International Federation for Information Technology and

Travel & Tourism (IFITT), the ENTER 2019 conference provides a unique

venue for various tourism stakeholders to understand the application of

information and communication technologies to travel and tourism, with a
