IFITT Board Elections 2023

International Federation for Information Technologies and Travel & Tourism (IFITT) invites applications for the IFITT Board positions. In this cycle, IFITT will be electing several Board members to lead the organization.

IFITT has undergone some major changes during the past years. However, many of the changes have been for the better. ENTER22 conference proceedings have now received almost 440 000 downloads. IFITT has a larger social media reach than ever before.

Also, for the first time in many years, IFITT turned in a profit during the 2021 accounting. The IFITT board has worked a lot to develop the organization and various initiatives, which have all taken us forward. Now is a great time to take the initiative and keep the momentum going on. For that purpose, IFITT needs active board members.

In return, the IFITT board will give its members a great experience in leading an international eTourism community and the opportunity to share knowledge, experience, and a true passion for ICT in travel and tourism.


All current IFITT members are eligible to apply.  IFITT has a 2-term rule. All board members who served two terms (each term is for 2 years) must stay out of the board for one year and then can re-run.
