Skift Take

I'm thrilled to reveal the complete list of Skift Global Forum 2018 speakers. These all-star CEOs and executives have made various impacts on the travel industry, and I can't wait to speak with them onstage. Will you be in the audience?

I am beyond excited to announce that the speaker lineup is SET for this year’s Skift Global Forum, which will take place on September 27-28, 2018 in New York City!

Including industry insiders, outsiders, innovators, and disruptors, this year’s fast-paced and provocative deep-dive conversations will hit every industry sector. Our editors will be asking the tough questions, and demand truthful answers, so that YOU, the audience, gets what you came for.

Here’s a preview of who will be taking the stage at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall



Carla Campos, the Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company will share insight from her experiences throughout the tragedy, and the island’s outlook and plans for an exciting rejuvenation. You may have heard that my team travelled to Puerto Rico for our annual company retreat in June. Check out this preview of Carla’s Global Forum session from our trip.

Thomas Keller, Chef/Proprietor at TKRG (The French Laundry, Bouchon) and Ken Himmel, President and CEO of Related Urban (Time Warner Center, Hudson Yards), will discuss upscale dining, mixed-use real estate development, and the intersection of the two as a part of the continued expansion of our restaurant brand, Skift Table.

We’re also hosting our first-ever Skift Restaurants Forum in New York on September 24th. Happy Hour pricing available now! Register today and make it a week full of Skift this Fall.
