Dear IPW Delegate:

We understand the tremendous impact the recent announcement to temporarily suspend air travel from Europe (including the United Kingdom and Ireland) will place on IPW buyers, media, exhibitors and the entire travel industry both abroad and here in the U.S.

We are hopeful that the government's aggressive actions will quickly resolve the worst of concerns about coronavirus. We plan to issue an update about the status of IPW no later than April 3 and are looking at all scenarios to preserve this event for 2020.

Immediately following the announcement, U.S. Travel released a statement urging Congress and the administration to advance policies that provide immediate relief to our industry's workforce and businesses, who will undergo significant disruption and hardship due to this current situation and the coronavirus outbreak overall. You can read the full statement here.

U.S Travel remains in close communication with public health officials and federal agencies on the latest guidance for meetings, events and travel at large. We will, of course, also work with Brand USA, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Travel Nevada to assess what is best for IPW and our delegates.

For many of us, IPW is more than a trade show. We are a community from every corner of the globe with a common goal and passion. That is why we are approaching this process very seriously. We understand the significant responsibility of IPW to not only bring the world to America, but to support jobs and commerce at home and abroad.

Meanwhile, we encourage you to stay engaged with IPW, and to regularly visit IPW.com for the latest information and event policies. Should you have questions, please reach out. We will do our best to reply in a timely manner.

Until then, our hearts are with those who are dealing with the ramifications of this tragic situation across the globe.

Respectfully yours,

Malcolm Smith, General Manager, IPW
