Today we are launching the latest report in our Skift Trends Reports service, a forward-facing look at The State of Mobile Booking 2015.

For the past several years travelers have been juggling their trip-planning, maneuvering from device to device while perusing a potential vacation on the train and continuing when arriving in the office, taking a lunch break or reaching for a tablet back at home on the couch. And that continues.

But in 2014 a seminal shift began to take shape in the U.S. as bookings on desktops trended downward for the first time in a non-recessionary period while mobile travel travel bookings were off the charts.

Skift sat down with the industry CEOs and product leads who are making the decisions and building the experiences that will define the mobile booking experience for years to come. From Expedia to Airbnb, we look at what’s working and what will change in the year ahead as brands move quickly to improve the mobile booking experience for existing customers while also finding new ones with compelling, seamless user experiences.
