The International Federation for Information Technology and Travel & Tourism (IFITT) actively supports the organization of workshops that deal with topics related to Information and Communication Technologies in a travel, tourism, leisure, hospitality and/or events context – eTourism.
Within this topical context the main objectives of the IFITTtalk workshops is to spark conversations, introduce new approaches, stay informed, find strategic partners and network, transfer knowledge between academia and the industry, or position an organization / community / group / person.
There are three different types of workshops:
- Standard workshop type focuses on general-purpose events addressing one specific travel, tourism, leisure, hospitality and/or events context community or a variety of communities.
- Student/University workshop type is an event hosted at a college or university, and is organized by university staff or students. It gives universities the opportunity to share research outcomes, innovations and ideas they are creating.
- Salon workshop type is an event that takes place on a regular basis (at least twice) and one of its main objectives is to keep the community engaged.
