Skift Global Forum 2019: Defining (and Sustaining) the Future of Travel

WHAT IS SKIFT GLOBAL FORUM?

Skift Global Forum is Skift’s largest and most diverse event. Held on the main stage at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City, this two-day event attracts more than 1,200 attendees from over 40 countries.

The annual Global Forum has become travel’s premier event and the place where top marketers, strategists, and technologists—the people creating and defining the future of travel—come together to think, learn, and adjust their perspectives to address the industry’s biggest challenges.

THE PROGRAM

Skift carefully curates topics and speakers in order to inspire our fellow travel professionals about the business and creative potential of travel, the world’s largest industry.

The single-stage event is focused, fast-paced, intimate, and thought provoking. Each day features TED-style talks and deep dive Q&As with travel’s most insightful business leaders and creative thinkers.

Skift’s journalists ask tough questions that go way beyond the obvious, draw on original insights from Skift Research, and push the boundaries of strategy and creative imagination.

The speakers on stage, the themes we discuss, and the questions we focus on all speak to our quest to understand the state of innovation in the travel sector and larger innovations in the world that affect travel. The big picture of the world, with travel as a filter to look at it.
