Skift Take

We know it's an expensive conference. We know two days out of the office is hard. If you're still on the fence about attending, or if your boss is not convinced, read on to hear why it's worth it!

Skift Global Forum is officially two months away this week. This is my favorite time of year; feels like the holiday season for Skift! Our team is working hard to make the conference amazing, and we can’t wait for you to see what’s in store.

We know that our tickets are pricey, and that two-plus days out of the office can be difficult to swing. I can assure you that the investments of your time and money are worth it, and our past attendees think so too. So we want to make sure you have all the information you need to feel great about your decision to attend Skift Global Forum!


That’s why we’ve put together a one-stop shop for you to find out who you’ll meet at the event, who will be onstage, and what’s included in your ticket. I hope this helps you get a clear picture of the value of attendance. We’ve done the math on who’s already confirmed to attend, and are excited to share who you’ll be networking with:

  • 30% C-suite and founders
  • 30% VP/SVP/EVP-level
  • Over 200 companies to date, and we’re expecting 550+ total coming from 40+ countries

If you’re not registered for Skift Global Forum, maybe it’s your boss who hasn’t yet seen the light. Skift has you covered on that front too. We wrote up this proposal so it’s easy for you to present the critical information your boss needs to know. You’ll have approval in no time!


I’ll be sharing more details in the coming weeks as we firm up the program. For now, check out this video from last year’s event to catch a glimpse of what’s in store. ‘Til next time…
