Global Entry allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. It also allows U.S. travelers to be eligible to participate in the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) PreCheck program, which expedites screening through TSA checkpoints at participating airports. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers will be at the Orange County Convention Center in room S319 during IPW, Monday, June 6, through Wednesday, June 8, to conduct in-person enrollment interviews. Visit the Trusted Traveler Programs website to apply today. After your Global Entry application is “conditionally approved,” log in to your TTP account and select “Schedule Interview.” Enter the “access code” 869KH2H51 and select enrollment location IPW 2022.
To participate in the interview process at IPW, submit your online application as soon as possible. Once your application has been submitted, please provide your last name and application number to [email protected].
Back by popular demand and enhanced with a major show floor presence for 2022, IPW Focus offers your registered delegates access to world-class education. Hear from experts during your schedule’s built-in flex time on an array of topics from technology and innovation to research and insights, presented by thought leaders and innovators from around the industry and beyond.
Kick off IPW 2022 at the Discover I-DRIVE Block Party, held from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 5, on Icon Park’s beautiful lawn. Members of the Visit Orlando team and its I-Drive partners will be on hand to welcome you with festival fare and a live DJ! The Block Party is open to all delegates—no registration needed.
Then, host city Orlando is rolling out the red carpet for our IPW delegates, with an exclusive opening evening event at EPCOT® and closing event at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Don’t miss out on IPW’s unlimited access to these incredible attractions and the nonstop networking that awaits in between the iconic rides, bites, beverages and so much more.
But Orlando isn’t stopping there—the City of Orlando’s Development Board, Visit Orlando, and other sponsors would love to host your team on Tuesday night for Destination Downtown Orlando—a buzzing evening filled with live entertainment, extraordinary performances, a showcase of Orlando’s exceptional food and beverage scene and local shops. Be sure to register in advance for this bonus evening.
Exhibitors can begin installing their booth Saturday, June 4, from 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. EST. Booths should be setup by Sunday, June 5, 5:00 p.m. EST.
Exhibitors may dismantle booths between 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8, and between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 9. No packing crates or boxes will be returned to exhibitors until after 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8.
Early tear-down and use of packing tape is very disruptive to other companies still conducting business and will not be permitted. Infractions of this rule are subject to a $500 fine. Exhibitors will be unable to register for booth space at a subsequent IPW until all fines have been paid in full.
U.S. Travel, premier sponsor Brand USA and our hosts, Visit Orlando and VISIT FLORIDA are fully committed to conducting a successful, productive and, above all, safe IPW that reunites the global travel community. We are counting on you to do your part to make this year’s show healthy, safe and productive and we thank you in advance for your cooperation and partnership.
