Connect @ IPW
Connect TOUR powered by Connect Travel is the premier hosted-buyer event that brings together the most active tour operators, suppliers and experts in domestic tour and travel for pre-scheduled appointments, keynote general sessions, planner/supplier roundtables and quality networking.
The co-location of Connect TOUR, Connect THRIVE Summit, and eTourism Summit will further enrich the IPW experience, providing travel marketers with cutting-edge tools and intelligence to promote their destinations and products in a post-COVID world.
In addition to taking appointments with IPW’s traditional international buyers, IPW exhibitors now have the option of purchasing an appointment book to schedule meetings with Connect TOUR’s robust and targeted domestic market of large consortia, tour operators, domestic wholesalers and OTA/retailers.
Past Connect TOUR suppliers targeting only the Connect TOUR domestic buyer audience may purchase the table top exhibit option.
Connect TOUR’s traditional domestic buyer program offers the opportunity to meet with U.S. travel suppliers with a twist—at IPW, Connect TOUR suppliers are stationed at the table tops to take appointments with the hosted domestic buyers.
Broaden your reach by meeting with those traditional IPW exhibitors that choose to purchase the Connect TOUR Domestic Buyer Appointment Schedule option. These appointments will take place in the IPW exhibitor's booth.
Nominal registration fees and hosted accommodations make Connect TOUR @ IPW an affordable, can’t-miss opportunity! For $250 early/$400 standard, the Connect TOUR domestic buyer registration offers the potential of up to 44 pre-scheduled appointments plus numerous open networking opportunities for informal appointments.
Connect TOUR domestic buyers are eligible for four night’s hosted accommodation (room & tax only), Sunday, September 19-Wednesday, September 22, with check-out on Thursday, September 23.
