Come with us to visit Skyscanner’s Head Office, the revolutionary digital travel company which has transformed the travel plans of millions around the globe.
Born out of Gareth Williams' frustration with finding cheap flights for ski-ing holidays, this Edinburgh based company offers travel searches in more than 30 different languages, including Thai, Japanese and Russian and helps over 50 million unique visitors each month to make the most efficient and cost effective decisions. A recent valuation set Skyscanner’s worth at £500m and the company has been sold to Ctrip, a Chinese based online travel agent, the second largest in the world, with Gareth still firmly at the helm.
Hear from Gareth himself, over pizza and beer, about how the company was founded, driven and grown alongside a tour of the working building and experience first hand the unique culture of the business.
