What Is the Skift Tour Operator Summit?

The first Skift Tour Operator Summit –taking place on October 28th in New York City– will explore the key disruptions facing this deeply-layered travel ecosystem. From tour suppliers to destination management companies, destination marketing organizations, travel agents, to the new breed of online sellers and tech disruptors, to the changing consumer traveling and buying preferences, we will bring together all parts of this sprawling multi-day sector for an intense day of discussions and learnings.
