ENTER conferences have always been great and I enjoyed being there; excellent programme with a good mixture of research and industry presentations. There has been a very promising case study section on ENTER this year (and outstanding case studies will even be invited to the newly started case study section in the Journal of Information Technology and Tourism). I am quite excited to see how this will evolve in future ENTERs.
