Expand your travel tech knowledge and networks

Join IFITT, the global community for knowledge generation and sharing in ICTs in tourism

The International Federation for Information Technology and Travel & Tourism (IFITT) is the leading independent global community for knowledge creation and dissemination in the ICTs in the travel & tourism sectors. We are passionate about fostering an environment where academics and professionals can collaboratively generate pioneering insights and share them broadly. Our community thrives on enriching dialogues, sharing cutting-edge resources, and creating platforms for peer exchange. Beyond bridging the academia-industry divide, we champion the dissemination of innovative research findings and ensure they resonate in classrooms and boardrooms alike. IFITT is at the forefront of nurturing a culture of open knowledge exchange, promoting research visibility, and advocating for a collaborative academic landscape. The ENTER eTourism conference, organized by IFITT, stands as a premier global forum for sharing and challenging the latest insights on the application of ICTs in the travel and tourism industry, welcoming all with a passion for this dynamic field. IFITT is led by President Professor Jacques Bulchand Gidumal, University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, and its board. Currently, IFITT has more than 10 000 followers from Europe, Asia, South and North America, Africa and Australia.
