We are coming off an action-packed week in Silicon Valley at our inaugural Skift Tech Forum, and our team is still energized from the thought provoking sessions, interactive discussions and networking that took place. You can check out coverage from the event here!
We never take too long to rest, and we’re still hard at work putting the finishing touches on the program for our fifth annual Skift Global Forum. The event will take place on September 27-28th at Jazz at the Lincoln Center in New York City.
We pride ourselves in curating the most creative conference in travel. This involves a yearlong effort to seek out and collaborate with companies at the forefront of industry innovation. At this time, I’d like to share with you a few of the high-level speakers we have confirmed to take the stage:
- Arne Sorenson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marriott International
- Glenn Fogel, CEO and President of Booking Holdings
- Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line
- Barney Harford, Chief Operating Officer of Uber
- Robert Chavez, President and CEO of Hermès of Paris
- Scott Kirby, President of United Airlines
In the coming weeks I will have much more to share with you… like the new opening reception venue, the finalized schedule with discussion topics, and an updated format! Last year we had over 1,000 travel industry executives attend, and we expect an even larger number this year. Don’t wait to claim your spot!
Skift Global Forum wouldn’t be possible without our all-star sponsors including Accenture Amadeus Alliance, VisitDallas, Sojern, Travelsify, Switchfly, Fareportal and AIG Travel. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Find out how.
