What parts of global travel are gone forever? How has the pandemic accelerated digital transformation in travel? How will the airline industry ever be able to rebound from this crisis? Is the world better off with a travel industry that is, say, 20 percent smaller going forward?
These are just a few of the topics that Skift’s reporters, editors, and research analysts will discuss when they come together online at noon ET on September 17 for a preview roundtable chat ahead of Skift Global Forum, September 21-23. Access to this live session will be granted only to registered attendees of the forum.
Think of it as being a fly on the wall for one of our internal meetings at Skift. They are never boring and this roundtable will be one of the best ways to get a high-level view on the conversations happening at Global Forum before they take place.
Our journalists and researchers have been on the frontlines of the pandemic since it struck earlier this year, writing hundreds of stories and reports analyzing the impact of coronavirus and pondering the future of travel. The hour-long discussion promises to raise issues, challenges, and potential solutions so that you will have them front of mind as you prepare to attend our global forum the next week.
We will also explore what 2021 and beyond will look like for travel in pandemic-world, though our global theme for this year’s forum: “The Decade Ahead: Safeguarding Travel’s Future.” Join Skift editors during this preview and at the form for frank and transparent conversations with leaders to discuss their recovery efforts, the latest consumer sentiments, and their strategies on creating a more resilient future for travel.
Again, access to this preview roundtable is limited to registered conference attendees. Get your pass today and we hope you will join us.
