As we expand our authority to constantly develop new ways of looking at the global travel industry, we are going deeper into creating conferences that move beyond the big-picture thinking we drive with our Skift Forums.

As part of that remit, we are announcing Skift Tech Forum, to take place in early June 2018 in Silicon Valley.

And much like everything else with Skift, we are putting our own unique filter on travel tech. We have created a conference that is laser-focused on the tech disruptions happening in the retailing, merchandising, and distribution (RMD) of travel. New technologies and consumer behaviors have been opening up new ways of selling — not to mention new relationships between businesses.

Skift Tech Forum will explore these tech disruptions happening in RMD of travel, with customer centricity as the connecting thread running across all the topics.

The impetus for the Tech Forum comes out of Skift Research, which has been exploring these deeper tech subjects in its subscription reports and across the larger Skift Research canvas.

The Tech Forum will bring together CEOs of giant B2B travel tech companies with the CMOs, CDOs, CTOs, CIOs, and tech innovators of key travel tech players, tech platform companies, and tech service providers. We’ll do this both on stage and through various networking events at the Skift Tech Forum. It will be the first such effort to bring together leaders from airlines, hotels, online travel agencies, and other sectors for whom innovations in retail tech drive their business agenda.

Super Early Bird tickets will be on sale soon. You can be the first to know and secure your spot when you enter your email.
