The International Association of Cultural and Digital Tourism (IACUDIT) is a global network of people, projects and events, that bear on a wide range of issues of concern and interest in cultural and digital tourism, in an era of major global changes. We promote and sponsor discussion, knowledge-sharing and close cooperation among scholars, researchers, policy makers and tourism professionals. We believe that: “Technological changes do not influence the missions of cultural tourism actors in the areas of promotion and product development, but rather the manner of carrying them out.”
