Skift Tech Forum 2018

Coverage of the Forum

Over the last five years, Skift Forums have become what media, speakers, and attendees have called the "TED talks of travel."

This is our inaugural Skift Tech Forum, gathering travel tech visionaries from across the world for one day of stimulating conversation, debate, and brainstorming. There are over 20 CEOs speaking, and 200+ companies represented.

Tech Forum is a full day of laser-focused talks on companies’ digital strategies and leaders’ views on disruptions happening in the retail, distribution, and merchandising of travel.

All talks are moderated by members of Skift’s executive and editorial teams. 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.
