Skift Global Forum

Skift Global Forum was Skift's first event and also helped launch a series the most creative business gatherings in the global travel industry. Over the last five years they have become what media, speakers, and attendees have called the "TED of travel."

Since the launch of our first Forum in 2014, we've expanded our events across the globe to Silicon Valley, Europe and Asia, as well as into the restaurants industry with our Skift Restaurants Forum.

Our annual Skift Global Forum in New York is still our biggest and most diverse event with1,100+ attendees from 40+ countries. It's the premier travel conference focused on the top marketers, strategists, and technologists in the industry — the people creating and defining the future of travel. Skift carefully curates topics and speakers for this two day conference in order to inspire our fellow travel professionals about the business and creative potential of world's largest industry.

This is not a freakin' trade conference! The program is fast paced, intimate and thought provoking. Skift moderators ask tough questions that go way beyond the obvious, draw on original Skift Research and push the boundaries of strategy and creative imagination. 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 travel sector and larger innovations in the world that affect travel. The big picture of the world, with travel as a filter to look at it.

That is why we bet this will be the best creative brainfood for you all year, that much we can promise!
