A Note from the CEO
At the start of 2013 Skift launched our first Global Trends Report, focusing on 13 trends that we believe would define travel in 2013. Six months later, after an amazing reception to the report, we are expanding on the trend hunting — so to speak — and are launching a twice-monthly Global Trends Report, focusing each edition on one specific trend and doing a deep dive into it.
Think of each edition as a briefing report on that specific trend, giving you great insight into the current state of the market, the context of what led to this trend and where that trend line is going in the near future.
This first issue dives into the rapidly changing state of the in-room entertainment experienced inside hotel rooms. It is an issue we have been covering frequently on Skift, and we think the sector will see a lot of activity from the industry and adoption from consumers, as expectations on ubiquitous connectivity rises across every part of the travel lifecycle.
