During the immersive one-day Skift Tech Forum, Skift editors and researchers will talk with industry figures who know more about retailing and distribution than anyone else — the CEOs, chief commercial officers, chief digital officers, and chief revenue officers of the industry’s largest and most innovative companies.
Retailing is the industry watchword of 2018. Airlines, hotels, and other travel brands are finally taking steps toward creating one-to-one relationships with their customers. But first they have to contend with the distribution giants and online travel agencies as they unveil a dizzying array of new tools and platforms.
At the same time, many venture capital firms are betting that large companies will be squeezed by innovative offerings from startups.
Our single-track event format will give you a deep, holistic view on travel retail and distribution from a tech perspective. By the end of our event, you will be able to hedge smarter bets on the future of the industry. Along with efficient networking, you’ll enjoy the world’s most differentiated tech conference in travel. We promise brainfood, not just a place to do a bit of business.
Want to know more? We just might dive into a few of these topics:
- Next generation commercial strategies that drive revenue from Chris Silcock, Chief Commercial Officer of Hilton
- Innovations in Tech from executives Expedia CCO Tony Donohue, Travelport CEO Gordon Wilson and AccorHotels CDO Maud Bailly

And that is only the beginning!
Unlike many conferences, our program is fast-paced, single-stage, and focused. We create a level of intimacy with thoughtful Q&As. Better yet, our speakers often join our audiences before and after their session to listen and get inspired. So, are you coming with us?
