The event has concluded.
Skift’s 7th annual Megatrends event and editorial release will look ahead to 2025, to a time beyond the pandemic and when travel has had a chance to return. The 60-minute event will take place online next week at 11 a.m. EST on January 13 and feature a high-level overview presentation, editorial roundtable, and audience Q&A.
Each January, the editorial team at Skift — the largest business information company in the global travel industry providing news, research, conferences, and marketing services to the world’s largest industry — compiles an annual Megatrends forecast report and goes beyond the headlines to identify the top trends that will shape travel in the year to follow. With the pandemic still closing borders and forcing restrictions through the first six months of 2021, our editors set their lens on 2025 and the travel industry we expect to see on the other side of its greatest crisis.
Skift Executive Editor Dennis Schaal has led this year’s forecast across our editorial team. On January 13, we will start our Megatrends 2025 event with an outlook from Skift Research on the next six to 12 months. Editors and research analysts will then present a high-level view on the themes we see driving travel in 2025, as discussed in the many articles within our Megatrends 2025 forecast, including:
- What will be travel’s new cadence in 2025?
- Which sectors will lead and which will lag over the next few years?
- What trends will spell long-term opportunity and which will prove short-lived?
- How will social, economic, and environmental challenges impact the industry?
- What will drive travelers booking decisions come 2025?
- Where do we see innovations are most needed in the travel industry?
- Are we already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel?
- Editors will take audience questions at the end of the presentation.
This intense 60-minute Megatrends presentation will be a must-attend event for anyone looking to understand travel’s future and the forces impacting all sectors in the years to come. Registration for this event is on a pay-what-you-want basis to make it accessible for the widest possible industry participation in this time. Attendees from across the globe can view the video and ask questions as the event streams live on Eastern U.S. timezone, or it will also be available on-demand following the event for viewing at attendees convenience.
