ENTER is a superb conference to attend. It provides a valuable link between tourism academia and the tourism industry.  The conference covers a wide range of interesting and relevant topics from the global online travel sector.  The IFITT community is very supportive and I have gained great insight from meeting people at events. I am very much looking forward to being part of ENTER2015.
