Coverage of the Summit

This December, Skift brings together an audience of founders and operators in the dynamic and rapidly expanding short-term rental ecosystem for a day of intimate conversations and discussions. The single-track event is focused, fast-paced, intimate, and thought provoking.

The speakers on stage, the themes we discuss, and the questions we focus on all speak to our quest to understand the state of innovation in the short-term rental sector and larger innovations in the world that affect this sector of the travel industry.

All talks are moderated by members of Skift's executive and editorial teams, as well as special guests. The team onsite will be posting updates throughout the day. Follow below to learn more about what's happening before, during, and after the event.
