The largest creative business event in the global travel industry.

Skift Global Forum – September 19-21, 2022 – NYC

Skift Global Forum 2022 — the flagship global conference on the business of travel — is returning this September as a full scale in-person event in New York City and broadcast online globally. 

As we look beyond 2022, the reality is that travel will never truly be the same, leaving it up to the industry to figure out how to adapt and evolve to meet this new future head on. The promise of travel remains as important as ever, and during our premier Global Forum event, we will hear from leaders and innovators across the business of travel as they look ahead with both optimism and vigilance at an industry that is both Reconnected and Reimagined.

Through our incisive executive interviews and deep-dive panels, Skift editors and research analysts will probe the global, economic and technology trends that are reshaping travel across aviation, hospitality, technology, destinations, online booking, and more. As we have said throughout the past 10 years of Skift, “this is not a freakin’ trade show.”

Join us September 19-21 and find out why Skift Global Forum remains the ‘can’t miss’ event of the year.

Join us as we explore the big questions facing travel, for a world that is both Reconnected and Reimagined:

How will global travel adapt to a future that is far less certain and far less predictable?

Will the travel industry take meaningful and collective action on climate change, and who is leading the way?

As consumers behaviors and preferences shift, how are we seeing a “Great Merging” of sectors across travel?

What are destinations doing to better manage travelers and also the needs of local communities?

How has the idea of luxury changed through the pandemic, and how will that impact design and service?

How will traveler experience be reshaped for consumers who are more digitally savvy and demand simplicity?

What are the technology driven change-makers doing to disrupt incumbents across the industry?

How are the industry’s leaders rethinking travel’s bottom line and building resilience to future disruptions?
