Skift Take

Calling all teachers, professors, and educators of hospitality, travel, and tourism. Skift wants you to contribute to our Global Forum in New York — that’s why we’re offering discounted rates!

Our fifth annual Skift Global Forum  will take place on September 27-28th at historic Jazz at the Lincoln Center in New York City. Over one thousand of the brightest minds and most influential people in travel will converge at the foot of Central Park. 20+ CEO and VP-level speakers are already confirmed.

Each year, the conference grows and evolves to cover a wider variety of topics and to include a more diverse group of attendees. Ideally we want every lover of travel to have access to our conference, but we know cost can often be a barrier. Luckily we offer special discounted rates for educators to attend!

This year, we are offering full-time educators the opportunity to attend Skift Global Forum at the reduced price of $1495  that’s a $2400 discount on a full price ticket!

To apply, email my team at [email protected] and tell us a little bit about you. What university or program do you work for? How do you think attending Skift Global Forum will benefit your classroom and curriculum?


If you qualify, we will send you a discount code to register at the reduced price. Don’t wait to apply — we only have 25 educator tickets available for the 2018 event!

At Skift Global Forum, you will be able to network with industry trailblazers new and old. Our attendee base is 29% C-suite and 47% VP level. You will hear insight from leaders of Fortune 500 companies including Marriott International, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, Delta Air Lines, TripAdvisor, Booking Holdings, Princess Cruises, and more!

Last year, educators from hospitality programs at univerisites including Cornell University and Ithaca College took advantage of this discount and made a transformative choice for their career and their students.

Email us at [email protected] with information on your employment and we will let you know if you qualify for the rate.


We are passionate at Skift about empowering the next generation of travel and tourism leaders. We couldn’t make this possible without the support of our generous sponsors including the Accenture Amadeus Alliance, VisitDallas, Sojern, Travelsify, Switchfly, and AIG Travel.
