Current state of the art of mobile devices allow visitors to be connected to sources of information in an anytime/anywhere manner. However, finding useful information as a tourist in an unknown place is not easy due to the lack of familiarity with the location on the one hand and to the interaction restrictions with mobile devices on the other. This paper presents a specific Intelligent Tourism Information Dissemination approach that comprehends the particular characteristics and requirements of knowledge management in tourism and thus, contextualizes the visitor and the visitor’s situation. The experiments carried out have focused on proving that digital broadcasting is an appropriate technology to disseminate tourism information and it can be processed by means of semantic-based rules with a lexicographic order. However, due to the high memory requirements and low performance of the CPU further research is needed in order to reduce the size of the ontology, and therefore, reduce the requirements in terms of memory and resource consumptions to perform the reasoning.
