This December, Skift will return to Dubai for our second annual Skift Global Forum East, presented by Dubai Department of Economy and Tourism. This two-day global conference will assemble top CEOs and creative leaders to discuss the innovations across marketing, strategy, and technology that are driving the future of travel.
