Skift Take

There was a lot to take in at Skift Global Forum this year. Now videos from the entire two-day event are available to see whatever you missed.

For two days last month, some of the biggest names in travel appeared on the Skift Global Forum stage in New York. And now the conversations — more than two dozen — are live on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.

Executives from Marriott, American Airlines, Expedia, Hyatt, Uber, Airbnb, Carnival Cruise Line, TripAdvisor and many more were in the spotlight, answering questions from Skift journalists about how their companies are dealing with today’s challenges and preparing for tomorrow’s customers.

We featured founders of smaller companies as well, to show how they are delivering new kinds of travel experiences for consumers who don’t want the same old cookie-cutter options.

Hotelier Ian Schrager dished about his Studio 54 days — and his feelings of disapproval about one former patron who is now the U.S. president. Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson described how one early-morning flight turned into an impassioned conversation between loyalty members about the Marriott-Starwood merger. And JetBlue President Joanna Geraghty explained how the airline hopes to win business because customers love it.
