Chairholder, Prof. Cantoni was a speaker at this year’s International Federation for Information Technologies and Tourism (IFITT) Masterclass on eTourism at MODUL University in Vienna (Austria), talking about sustainable tourism and tourism for SDGs.

“Tourism and information technologies are two of the largest and most dynamic industries in the world and they are changing the way societies operate. Since 20 years, the International Federation for Information Technologies and Tourism (IFITT) is developing and exchanging cutting-edge knowledge about the use and impact of new information & communication technologies in the various travel & tourism industries.

At the intersection of these fascinating domains, the European IFITT Masterclass on eTourism (EIFMeT) is complementing higher education programs in the broad fields of Tourism studies, computer sciences, media and communication technologies, by offering master students and interested participants from the travel industry an attractive compulsory optional subject. In the course of a one-week blocked class, cutting edge researchers and scholars in the field of eTourism will share their knowledge on both the state-of-the art and advanced e-Tourism topics and innovative technology applications.”
