Last week, we examined the trends that are shaping travel in Europe at Skift Forum Europe in Berlin. Executives from Airbnb, AccorHotels, Google, Booking.com, and others discussed strategy, changing consumer behavior, and, at times, each other.
In tandem with the event, we released a magazine exploring how Europe roared back after a difficult 2016. Despite terror attacks, Brexit-related uncertainty, and nationalist political rhetoric across the continent, Europe saw tourism arrivals soar 8 percent in 2017.
In a series of stories, analyses, and data-rich charts from Skift’s editorial and research teams, we look at the big picture of European tourism as well as the ramifications for meetings, the cruise industry, airlines, homesharing, venture capital, and more.
Read the digital magazine for insight into how Europe is moving forward, what that means to various sectors of travel, and which destinations are making the biggest gains.
