Review New Program Guidelines
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.
First-time domestic buyer organizations must complete the online Domestic Buyer Qualification Questionnaire. There are limited openings for domestic buyer organizations, and approved organizations may register no more than two delegates each. Applications will no longer be accepted once we reach capacity or close registration.
Buyer delegates must have the ability to negotiate and contract product. Individuals registered as a domestic buyer can only request appointments with those exhibitors who have not selected the Opt Out of Domestic Buyer Appointments Option.
Only Domestic Tour Operators, Domestic Wholesalers, and Domestic Retail Agencies/E-Commerce will be considered for the domestic buyer registration category under the conditions stated under the Criteria to Attend section.
Most importantly, delegates must have the ability to negotiate and contract product.
NOTE: Receptive/Inbound tour operators, online travel agencies (OTAs), and Marketing and Technology Providers (organizations that offer a marketing, technology, or distribution solution as their primary business) should refer to the new Exhibitor Buyer category for criteria and program guidelines.

The following organizations do not qualify to register as domestic buyers under the new program guidelines. However, these types of organizations may participate at IPW through the Marketing and Technology Pavilion, and, if exhibiting, may also qualify for the Exhibitor Buyer program.
Online registration requires organization login codes. If you attended as a domestic buyer in the past, and still qualify for this category, we will email you your organization login codes to submit your registration.
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.
