Skift Take

Take a 60-second tour of what you can expect to see, hear, and do at this year's Skift Global Forum.

Over the last five years, Skift Global Forum has become what media, speakers, and attendees have called the “TED Talks of travel.” Join us September 18-19 in New York City to hear thought leaders from Delta Air Lines, Airbnb, Hilton Hotels, and more as we discuss and explore the state of innovation in the travel sector and larger developments in the world that have an impact on the business of travel.

For those of you who haven’t joined us before, what happens at our event may be a bit of a mystery. While you can watch or read about every session from last year, we realize that you may not have the 15 hours of free time necessary. For you, then, we’ve put together a 60-second highlight reel (above) to give you a sense of the energy, the environment, and the audience you’ll find.

Take a look at the schedule to see the full sessions and speakers.

Some of this year’s topics will include:

  • Travel’s Green New Deal: What are the priorities? How much must be invested to meaningfully address global sustainability issues?
  • Hospitality’s Next Move: Strategies for addressing experience, differentiation, and scale in an increasingly competitive and consolidated market
  • The Transparency Conundrum: Online booking diversification, packaging, and brand partnerships
  • The Future of Mobility: From aviation to ridesharing, strategies, markets, and technologies that are redefining mobility and transforming customer experience
