Skift Take

Skift Forums offer attendees a unique mix of mind-expanding inspiration, actionable insights, and superior networking opportunities that open the mind and connect the world.

Skift Global Forum is Skift’s largest and most diverse event. Held on the main stage at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City, this two-day event attracts more than 1,200 attendees from over 40 countries.

The annual Global Forum has become travel’s premier event and the place where top marketers, strategists, and technologists — the people creating and defining the future of travel — come together to think, learn, and adjust their perspectives to address the industry’s biggest challenges.

Here are five good reasons why you should join us this September 18–19 in New York City.
