Skift Take

We've confirmed top speakers to take the stage and our program is taking shape. Join us for the inaugural Skift Forum Asia, where the Future of Travel Will Be Tested.

The excitement continues to build for the inaugural Skift Forum Asia to be held on May 27th, 2019 in Singapore. I’m coming off a great trip to Singapore last month, where Skift President Carolyn Kremins and I met with many passionate individuals who are defining the future of travel in Asia and globally. Upon reflection and brainstorming with the Skift editorial team, we’re thrilled to announce the program theme “The Future of Travel Will Be Tested in Asia”.

Skift Forum Asia is a fast paced, day long conference featuring TED-style talks and deep dive Q&A’s with travel’s most insightful business leaders and creative thinkers. The Forum will explore strategic, marketing and technology trends emerging in and coming from APAC countries. We’ll pay special attention to digital disruptions in communications and transportation and how these innovations will transform customer experience globally and across every travel industry sector.

Quite simply, our editors believe the Future of Travel is now being tested in Asia. With this event, we’re increasing our focus on the region as pivotal to understanding the travel industry; the world’s biggest business. You can purchase tickets now at Super Early Bird Rate $600 USD — that’s $395 off full price. These tickets are about to sell out; ONLY 5 REMAIN! Act now to secure your spot at the discounted rate.
