ENTER is a great annual event that helps to boost local (e)Tourism community, that involves young people (PhD students, young tourism industry professionals and volunteers) in the research and understanding on how digital technologies are important for future tourism development. Professionally, I met several interesting people who will now be colleagues and perhaps friends for life.
