Domestic Buyers Registration
Registration Opens Mid-October
Registration Opens Mid-October
The Domestic Buyer program is intended for U.S.-based travel package companies whose revenues are driven in large amount by international visitors. First-time domestic buyer organizations must complete the online Domestic Buyer Qualification Questionnaire. Because of new criteria, some returning domestic buyer organizations may also be requested to complete the questionnaire. There are limited openings for domestic buyer organizations; applications will no longer be accepted once we reach capacity or close registration.
The following types of companies may be considered for the domestic buyer registration category under the stated conditions. Applicants should meet the majority of criteria under the respective category:
Domestic buyer companies and registered delegates are subject to the approval of the U.S. Travel Association and the IPW Advisory Group, which is made up of exhibiting destinations and organizations.

These types of organizations may participate at IPW through the Marketing and Technology Pavilion.
Registration opens in the fall.
Online registration requires organization login codes. If you attended as a domestic buyer in 2019, and still qualify for this category, we will email you your organization login codes to submit your 2020 registration online.
If you need organization login codes, please submit the brief Login Code Request Form. Due to the high volume of requests, we cannot guarantee that login code requests submitted fewer than 5 days in advance of a registration deadline will be processed in time for you to qualify for a particular registration fee discount or to submit your registration form before registration closes.
To be eligible for the member rates, 2020 member dues must be paid by February 28, 2020, regardless of when the registration purchase was made. If the dues payment is not received by February 28, 2020, the Non-Member Rate will be applied to the IPW registration invoice (paid or unpaid) and balance billed.

In the event of a paid delegate cancellation, the registration fee will be refunded in full if written cancellation notice is received by U.S. Travel Association on or before February 28, 2020.
