Most Innovative Companies


Skift was founded by journalists Jason Clampet and Rafat Ali in 2012 to offer intelligent analysis of news and trends in the travel industry. Since then, the B2B site has become mandatory reading not only for travel industry insiders, but technologists, trend forecasters, airline strategists, marketing executives, hotel operators, aviation experts, and even civilians looking for the inside scoop. Skift supports both its eponymous news site and Skift Table, which covers the restaurant industry, through advertising and branded content. The company also runs the subscription-based Skift Research and puts on events, including the Skift Global Forum, which is one of the biggest conferences in the travel industry.
