Skift Take

Travel will never be the same, we know that, which makes our annual Megatrends outlook all the more important to understand this coming year as pillars for the industry's next phase.

Join us at 2 p.m. EST on January 19 for our annual Skift Megatrends event. Listen in as Skift editors and research analysts share our forecasts and predictions on the changes coming to travel in the year ahead. This year’s event will also feature interviews with forward-looking leaders from across the industry, as we dive into these trends.

Our annual Megatrends event is the culmination of a year-long effort by 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. Through its reporting, and the additional forecasting, data and insights from Skift Research, the edit team compiles the annual Megatrends report that goes beyond the headlines to identify the top trends that will shape travel in the year to follow.

Our presentation of the Megatrend themes and conversations on stage will explore the big shifts happening across travel in 2022, including:

  • How will the industry stay agile and adapt quickly in continued periods of uncertainty?
  • What will the renewed urgency and new models for action around climate change mean for travel?
  • Will changes to booking patterns last and what new opportunities will come from that shift?
  • What will the changes in remote work mean for tomorrow’s travel experience?
  • How will travel address its accelerated labor crisis and broaden the skills of its workers?

The new year promises more momentum in travel’s recovery from the pandemic, but not without setbacks from variants and uneven border policies. Megatrends will offer the sharpest clarity yet for what to expect on the other side of the industry’s deepest crisis.

What to Expect

This annual event is a must-attend online event for anyone looking to understand what lies ahead for the travel industry, the strategies leaders are betting on for the future, and what travelers are seeking as travel returns. As always, editors will take questions for speakers from the audience as the event streams live.
