These 15 top travel firms come from a variety of industries, including airlines, hotels, cruise lines, and online agencies or OTAs.

These companies’ combined value, compiled from data from S&P Capital IQ, was nearly $760 billion as of Sept. 17th. Notable — The CEOs from six companies mentioned above will speak at SkiftGlobal Forum September 21-23, in New York City.
