ENTER2015 Call for Industry Cases

In addition to the usual call for academic research papers, and considering the success achieved in the previous conferences, ENTER2015 is having a call for projects primarily aimed at tourism industry representatives as well as technology and marketing practitioners from companies working in the travel and tourism sector who have valuable experience to report and present.

Projects will be in the form of a presentation at one of the sessions in the ENTER 2015 Industry Track. A proposal of the project to be presented should follow the guidelines stated at the end of this call. Speakers should also include a short bio (50 words) or CV and a short presentation of their organisation (100 words). Official conference language is English (no translation services are available at the conference).

Making sense of Big Data: Innovative metrics of social media impact on businesses ROI
Smart and Innovative experiences of Travel Agents thriving in the current context
Online Reputation Measurement from Social Media Strategies
User Generated Content impact on purchasing behavior
Innovative Mobile strategies and Location based services
Cases of latest technology at the service of Customer Experience

Feedback will be given to all submitters stating the acceptance or inappropriateness of the proposal and, possibly, requests for modifications.

Instructions for the submission of the presentation will be sent to all accepted and confirmed speakers. Presentations will be published online and made available to all delegates of ENTER 2015.

Authors have to register for the conference by November 16th, 2014 in order to have their presentation scheduled.

ENTER is the top event worldwide in the area of Information Technology in Tourism. It is exactly where one can find state of the art academic research but also industry knowledge and insights on trends and innovative applications that are driving change in Tourism. What I like most about ENTER  was the plurality of the themes presented, but also the ideal mix of perspectives between the academia and the industry.
