Megatrends Defining Travel in 2017

Here at Skift, we talk a lot about travel trends. But once a year, we go even bigger with our Megatrends package. That’s our wide-ranging forecast for the coming year in travel, which you can find online here.

You can also hear some highlights on today’s episode of the Skift podcast. We’re bringing listeners the audio from our annual Megatrends event, held in January at a WeWork space in Manhattan.

Skift founder and CEO Rafat Ali and co-founder and editor-in-chief Jason Clampet delved into nine of our 15 megatrends and touched on topics including how low-cost airlines are changing the transatlantic game; the festivalization of meetings and events; the return of humanity to travel; the rise of lean luxury; and tours and activities coming into their own.

Our Megatrends 2017 sponsors were MasterCard, UrLife, Smartling, Allianz, American Express, Four Seasons, and Hostelworld.
