The congress will take place in the city of Guimarães (Portugal), a UNESCO World Heritage Site and tourism destination. The venue for this event is the Centro Cultural Vila Flor, in the Vila Flor Palace, an 18th century building and national cultural icon located in the historic center of Guimarães. The Vila Flor Palace is reflective of this city where culture is open to all audiences.

CIT 2015 approaches several issues related to the future of tourism in the 21st century with a “back to basics” approach to new challenges and trends. Tourism can be the "fuel" for the economy, creating new societies and contributing to a new paradigm of a democratic system of governance. In addition to its importance to the global economy and job creation, tourism can contribute to peace and intercultural communication. This “happiness industry” can contribute to the balance of payments as well as environmental and socio-economic sustainability.

This forum involves the core trilateral for planning and development success in the industry, including researchers, business community, policy makers and engineers who, directly and indirectly, influence the future of this sector.
