2019 Event Info
Defining the Future of Responsible Travel
WHAT IS SKIFT FORUM EUROPE?
This one-day conference is the premier European travel event focused on the top marketers, strategists, and technologists in the industry — the people creating and defining the future of travel.
Skift Forum Europe is unlike any other event in the region because of its laser focus on examining Europe as a bellwether for many of the leading trends in global travel. European executives more often than not signal forthcoming trends that will eventually impact the top and bottom lines for companies across the globe.
This year our journalists will probe Europe’s unique role in defining and scaling responsible travel practices critical to the long term sustainability of the travel industry; the world’s biggest business.
