This study aims to analyze the different factors affecting the adoption of Electronic Marketing (E-Marketing) by Egyptian small tourism organizations. The study validates a conceptual framework extending TAM and IDT models to explain E-marketing adoption utilising a quantitative approach, in which data is collected based on survey strategy through questionnaires to address different levels of the study. Advanced statistical tools and SEM were used to analyze the collected data. The findings indicated that Egyptian tourism organizations internal and external factors have a great impact on the adoption of E-Marketing by such organizations. The findings also confirmed that IT theories (namely TAM and IDT) are valid in illustrating E-Marketing adoption by Egyptian tourism organizations. The results reinforce the importance of environmental factors on E-Marketing adoption and add to the extremely limited number of empirical studies that has been conducted to investigate E-Marketing adoption in developing countries. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
