June 2021

Planning is in full swing for IPW 2021 and we look forward to reuniting the world in Las Vegas. 

Update on U.S. Travel's Efforts to Reopen International Travel

Last week, U.S. Travel Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Policy Tori Barnes joined a panel urging U.S. and Canadian officials to reopen the countries’ shared border. Despite news that nonessential travel restrictions to the U.S. from Canada and Mexico have been extended through July 21, U.S. Travel remains highly engaged with the Biden administration to magnify the urgency of broadly reopening borders to international travelers.

An updated blueprint for international reopening is under-development and will be shared with the wider industry soon. The plan, which was previously shared with the administration, will now address additional steps we need to take to quickly reopen and communicate the imperative to set a date certain for reopening, to take place this July.
