We are excited to present to you the 10th version of our annual megatrends. This undertaking is our largest collective editorial project of the year, the result of hundreds of hours of work that starts with initial planning back in early summer. Skift editors and researchers don’t take our trends lightly, putting the ideas through rigorous self-examination and batting down those that don’t feel completely fresh and cutting-edge.
As always, we offer a wide-ranging set of topics that we hope will guide you in your businesses in smarter ways for 2023 and beyond. We’ve had a pretty good record of being prescient with our big-picture trends. This year, from blended traveling to the potential for generative AI, to India’s reordering of travel, to name just three of our 16 trends, we weigh in across most sectors with forward-thinking ideas that we are confident will come to fruition.
Even as we all return to a more vital pace of traveling, the pandemic continues to leave its legacy on the industry in both challenging and positive ways. Here’s hoping our current megatrends will help you navigate and succeed through this new landscape. — Tom Lowry, Skift Editor-in-Chief
