Skift Take

We are honored to have Ricardo Rosselló, Governor of Puerto Rico, as our keynote speaker for the Skift Global Forum opening event on September 26. Don't miss this special evening!

In just a few days, we’ll assemble our growing Skift team and 1,100+ of the travel industry’s best professionals for the fifth annual Skift Global Forum.

Today we’re excited to announce our keynote speaker Ricardo Rosselló, Governor of Puerto Rico, who will share his perspective and insights on the future growth of Puerto Rico, in a one-to-one interview with Dennis Schaal, Skift’s Founding Editor.


Since being elected as Governor in 2017, Rosselló has witnessed first-hand the economic struggles Puerto Rico has faced as well as recovery and rebuild efforts after harrowing effects of Hurricane Maria on the island.

Roselló will shed light on the opportunities Puerto Rico currently has to foster economic development and regrowth through travel and tourism.

This is happening next Wednesday, so join us 36 floors above Central Park at the Mandarin Oriental, New Yorkwhere you’ll meet and engage with our 50% VP-level and above audience for the first time.

Doors open at 6pm for a special evening featuring cocktails, a variety of delicious food, and plenty of time for networking.

You’ll also have the exciting chance to be part of the inaugural Air Pitch Competition. You’ll watch the top 3 finalists make pitches to executives, and a winner will be selected live!


Because only registered attendees can join, we have to level with you — there are only 10 seats still available at Skift Global Forum. Don’t miss out!

Space for the opening event is limited. Only the first 400 registered attendees to RSVP will be guaranteed entry.

A sincere thank you to our opening event sponsor, the Accenture Amadeus Alliance, for making this amazing experience possible:
