International Federation for IT and Travel & Tourism
"The International Federation for IT and Travel & Tourism (IFITT) aims at the promotion of the international discussion about information technologies in the field of tourism.They also publish Information Technology and Tourism, a journal I'm trying to get a hold of at the moment because of this article, but it's proving difficult because my university doesn't have a subcription to it at all... In any case, I'm going to try to contact the local IFITT person for my thesis research. =)
Information and communication systems forming a global network are having a profound influence on the tourism and leisure industry. Reservation systems, distributed multi-media systems, mobile working places and electronics markets are notable results of this development.
Advances in the use and development of tools, technologies and methodologies that have facilitated the efficient networking of information systems in the tourism industry and their economic and organisational impacts are to be discussed within the federation. Members of IFITT are either persons working in this area or organisations, companies and research institutes (institutional members)."
