The FFS, the Swiss National Railway is extremely long and allows you to conveniently reach Lugano from the rest of Switzerland and from other international destinations. From the railway station, the Congress Hall can either be reached on foot (15 min.) or by means of public transportation: the FFS funicular or by line n°2 bus.
Lugano is on the international Gothard motorway (Zurich-Chiasso-Milan) that directly connects Northern Europe with the Mediterranean.

ENTER conferences have always been great and I enjoyed being there; excellent programme with a good mixture of research and industry presentations. There has been a very promising case study section on ENTER this year (and outstanding case studies will even be invited to the newly started case study section in the Journal of Information Technology and Tourism). I am quite excited to see how this will evolve in future ENTERs.
