Skift Forums have become what media, speakers, and attendees have called the “TED Talks of travel.” Since the launch of our first Forum in 2014, we’ve expanded Forums across the globe to Europe and Asia.
Our annual Skift Global Forum in New York is our biggest and most diverse event with 1,200+ attendees from 40+ countries. It’s the industry’s most premium travel conference focused on the top marketers, strategists, and technologists in the industry — the people creating and defining the future of travel. Skift carefully curates topics and speakers for this three-day conference in order to inspire our fellow travel professionals about the business and creative potential of the world’s largest industry.
The program is fast-paced, intimate, and thought-provoking. 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.
We asked participants of Skift Global Forum 2019 for one word to describe the event. Here’s what they said.
