At the Skift Global Forum earlier this month we released our second print magazine.
Our earlier magazine from January was devoted to the megatrends that were defining travel in 2015, and we’re happy to say that the finished product the second time around is more than double in size from the first issue — 78 pages versus 34.
The new magazine, called “Versus,” explores the global faultlines and conflicts that were determining the direction of the travel industry.
We don’t aim to be judges on which of these clashes happening will win out, or which of them are good versus bad, but that the opportunities for disruption in the industry lie in understanding and capitalizing on these clashes. The answer, in some cases, will be completely new industries that have the best mix of old and new.
