Why IPW?

IPW is your one-stop shop for story ideas and the latest news and trends for the U.S. travel product. Complimentary registration is available for a limited number of qualified domestic media.

Eligibility

Print and broadcast media interested in attending IPW should submit their name and credentials for review to Cathy Reynolds, along with several examples of recently published articles in accredited news outlets (within the past 12 months). Articles must be about travel within the United States. Proof of a journalist's name on the masthead of an accredited publication is also acceptable. You will be notified of your status via return email.

Only working journalists may attend the show; CEOs, publishers, advertising, media or sales representatives and custom publishers are not eligible to register as journalists but may participate through the Marketing and Technology Pavilion.

Registration Information

Your complimentary domestic journalist registration provides access to all official IPW functions, including the Brand USA Marketplace Hall, Brand USA Media Marketplace, press tours, luncheons, and all evening events.

Online registration requires organization login codes. If you attended as a domestic journalist in the past, and still qualify for this category, we will email you your organization login codes to submit your registration.

Learn the difference between organization login codes and individual login codes

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.
