IFITT news


  • I attended my first ENTER conference in 1999 in Innsbruck. Haven’t missed a single conference since. Have met so many interesting people at ENTER conferences and love the mix of academia and industry. Looking forward to the next ENTER!

  • IFITT and ENTER had an incredible impact to the development of eTourism community globally. I was there from the very beginning and still remember Hannes tapping on my shoulder discreetly to invite me to a small meeting in the Innsbruck congress centre Board room in 1996 to plan the launch of IFITT in 1997, chairing the Research Track in Istanbul in 1998 and many nights at bar Filou…More importantly ENTER and IFITT developed a strong community of friends and collaborators.
