What Is Skift Global Forum?

Skift Global Forum is Skift’s largest and most diverse event. Held at the newly opened Glasshouses space in New York City, this three-day program 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.

What Happens on Stage?

Skift journalists and special guests speak with leaders in both one-on-one and group settings. Questions are driven by editorial, not marketing concerns. We choose participants who are leaders, innovators, and creatives in the travel industry. Attendees are able to participate via a Q&A section at the end of many of the sessions.
