Our Summit

The highly-competitive online travel market and its brands have been one of the most disruptive forces in travel, sparking digital transformation, spurring consumer demand, and impacting all sectors of the industry.

With all eyes on Airbnb as a newly-minted public company, metasearch companies acting like online travel agencies, airlines launching lifestyle booking platforms, and online travel agencies resetting strategies to emerge even stronger post-crisis, the coming year will see no shortage of headlines and shifts in online travel.

This summit is not-to-be-missed for professionals across the industry as Skift editors and research analysts dive into the most consequential companies, leaders, and game-changers across the online travel landscape as leaders from across online travel, distribution, and digital booking reveal how they are Creating Travel’s New Economy in 2021 and beyond.
