Skift does not accept any speaker suggestions or submissions. The speaker selection each year is an internal editorial process based on programming needs as determined by Skift’s editors.
Skift Global Forum was Skift’s first event in 2014 and helped launch a series the most creative business gatherings in the global travel industry. Over the last five years they have become what media, speakers, and attendees have called the “TED of travel.”
In 2018, we debuted our Tech Forum in Silicon Valley California. Tech Forum is a laser focused one day event focused on key trends and disruptions that impact revenue and drive the ecommerce and technology strategies that power retailing, distribution, and merchandising decisions in travel.
Skift Tech Forum 2019 will explore these tech disruptions happening in retailing, distribution, and merchandising and of travel, with customer centricity as the connecting thread running across all the topics.
You will hear from the chief commercial officers and digital and ecommerce heads of travel’s biggest consumer brands, the CEOs of industry giants and the entrepreneurs and investors vying for opportunities to disrupt incumbents in a fast paced series of conversations with Skift editors and you our audience.
