Overview

Event Overview:

U.S. Travel Association’s IPW is the travel industry's premier international marketplace and the largest generator of travel to the U.S. - it is NOT a typical trade show. In just three days of intensive pre-scheduled business appointments, more than 1,000 U.S. travel organizations from every region of the USA (representing all industry category components), and more than 1,300 international and domestic buyers from more than 70 countries conduct business negotiations that result in the generation of more than $4.7 billion in future Visit USA travel. At IPW, buyers and sellers are able to conduct business that would otherwise be generated only through an exhaustive number of around-the-world trips.

IPW will have more than 1,100 exhibitor booths held by U.S. Suppliers of USA travel products and destinations and more than 5,000 attendees who are international travel buyers, domestic travel buyers and international journalists representing more than 70 countries.

Exhibitors:

U.S. Suppliers of USA travel products and destinations

Attendees:

International Buyers, Domestic Buyers and International Journalists

Exhibitor Information:

IPW provides a cost-effective marketplace that offers "one-stop shopping" for pre-qualified international and domestic buyers to learn about and purchase U. S. travel products and services from eligible U. S. suppliers.

About U.S. Travel:

We uniquely leverage the collective strength of everyone who benefits from travel to grow their business beyond what they can do individually. Through board, committee and council involvement you can help yourself while making a difference for the industry.

We assist members with programs and platforms to help promote travel to and within the U.S., especially through International Pow Wow (IPW), the pre-eminent international trade show bringing travel to America.

We lead industry-wide initiatives to grow and sustain travel and ensure the freedom to travel. Through our efforts, travel is better understood by opinion leaders, policymakers and media as essential to the economy, security, image and well-being of the U.S. and travelers.

We provide widely-respected, industry-leading economic data, information, analysis and travel trends to benefit our members and support industry efforts involving advocacy and promotion.
