Information technology and innovation are tightly linked in practice and academia. To succeed in a digital, global environment, tourism businesses and destinations must (re)-invent their products, services or processes with information technology. The interdisciplinary nature of tourism suggests there are many opportunities for understanding innovation and innovation-fueled entrepreneurship from a variety of perspectives. In this special track, we welcome submissions that contribute to our understanding of innovation and entrepreneurship, that, by connecting with the progressively digitalized tourism sector, unravel secrets of success, offer insight into business failures, and are integrated into responsible and sustainable destination development.
This special session covers, but is not limited to, the following potential topics:
All papers should be submitted as research notes to the ENTER2020 Research Track. (Please note: Research notes’ deadline is later than full papers’.)
