What is IPW?

U.S. Travel Association’s IPW is the travel industry's premier international marketplace and is 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 and 500 media from more than 70 countries conduct business negotiations that result in the generation of more than $4.7 billion in future U.S. 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.
