Data analysis is an essential part of the travel industry. TravelgateX and Skift are joining forces to better understand where the market is heading and help make better decisions.

Skift Research has provided a near real-time analysis of the travel industry performance since the start of the pandemic, and it is thanks to data partners like TravelgateX that we can continue with this effort. Whether it´s the impact of the pandemic is waning, the war in Ukraine, the reopening of China, the high inflation or a possible recession, they all impact the travel industry, and the data from TravelgateX is invaluable in tracking how this unfolds, and to ensure that the industry can stay a step ahead. We would like to thank TravelgateX for their commitment and thought leadership."
The data TravelgateX will provide for these reports comes from every single transaction between "buyers" and "sellers" of hotel services operating through TravelgateX worldwide. Currently, this data source translates into 30,000 daily bookings and more than 4.5 billion searches a day.
