This virtual event is the first in a series of Online Summits from Skift. Travel’s Path Forward: Business Travel was a 2-hour dive into the key challenges, shifts in strategy, and future solutions needed for business travel. Skift editors were in-conversation with leaders from travel management companies, buyers, consultancy and guest experience companies.
Travel demand globally has collapsed in a matter of weeks as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, leaving the entire industry to figure out how to manage the present and consider plans for future recovery. These video interviews and frank conversations are meant to inspire and to impart best practices for the corporate travel industry, providing an overview of the travel landscape, how coronavirus has affected the industry, and ideas on how travel can best manage these shifts in the future. Several thousand travel leaders, brands, and media tuned in to the online summit.
