So, the big day is here, the day of the inaugural Skift Global Forum. With an amazing lineup of speakers and a really diverse group of attendees from all around the globe — and all sectors of the global travel industry — this is possibly the most eclectic group of people ever assembled in the travel industry, here today in New York City.

We together are defining the Future of Travel.

We have carefully curated these 25 speakers through the day today on stage (the full schedule is here), a mix of creative and business leaders in the travel industry.

No panels, no pitches, only talks and one-to-one interviews, all designed around helping you understand where the future of travel is heading, with topics to inspire the professionals in travel about the business and creative promise of the sector.

Check the full show flow, speakers and their topics below.

For those not at the Forum we will be covering the event, live on our Twitter feed at @skift and more at the hashtag for the Forum #SkiftForum.

We will be posting stories about each of the sessions on the site throughout the day. We will also be posting videos of the sessions online over the next few days and weeks, but no livestream this year.

And huge thanks to all our sponsors, for making the Forum possible:
