The International Tourism Congress is the annual scientific meeting of the Centre for Tourism Research, Development, and Innovation (CiTUR). The XIII edition will be organised by the Estoril Higher Institute for Tourism and Hotel Studies (Escola Superior de Hotelaria e Turismo do Estoril – ESHTE), with the participation of the organising committee of the XV Edition of ITC. 

We are pleased to invite researchers, scholars, tourism and hospitality leaders and professionals within public and private organisations, and members of professional bodies to submit their work. The main theme of the Congress is:

“Reinventing tourism for upcoming challenges.”

ITC will be held from 28th to 29th October 2021, in Estoril, Portugal ( Pre-Congress: 27th October ). Due to the current pandemic situation the Congress is prepared to happen in an online mode, hoping for the possibility of some face-to-face sessions.

ITC 2021 aims to present and discuss national and international experiences on the advances and trends in tourism and hospitality fields. We intend to join academics, master and doctoral students of tourism, travel, hospitality, or related subjects.  Public administration members, industry leaders, and professionals, who are keen on the latest developments in T&H research, and on sharing their expertise with the other Congress participants, are very welcomed.

We live challenging times. It is the moment to reinvent. To rethink. To reimagine. To replan. To reengineer.  To restructure. To recommunicate. To restart.

Join us in Estoril, Portugal!
