Skift Global Forum East – December 13-15, 2022 – Dubai

We are excited to expand our premier Skift Global Forum series to a part of the world at the center of global connectivity between Asia and the West — Dubai

This December, Skift will launch Skift Global Forum East, presented by Dubai Department of Economy and Tourism; a two-day conference assembling top CEOs and creative leaders to discuss innovations coming to bear on the future of travel. The energy around the travel industry in the Middle East right now is unprecedented, and Dubai is at the center of it all.

We will bring the Skift ethos of fast-paced presentations and incisive interviews to this new event as we decipher and define the future of travel. Themes will span the intersection of technology and marketing, consumer-facing advances across user experience and design, how sustainability will play an ever-increasing role in the business of travel, how progressive modern economies prioritize travel as their future economic engine, and much more. 

Join Skift this December 13-15 for this exciting new forum as we convene leaders who understand the larger context in which travel operates and seek to re-imagine the industry for a post-pandemic world. 

What to expect

Skift Global Forum East will assemble top CEOs and creative leaders to discuss innovations coming to bear on the future of travel, in the dynamic Middle East region and globally. The conference program will dive deep into what’s shaping the industry post-pandemic— the intersection of technology and marketing, consumer-facing advances across user experience and design, how sustainability will play an ever-increasing role in the business of travel, how progressive modern economies prioritize travel as their future economic engine, and much more.
