Appointment Scheduling

International Advisory Committee (IAC) and Visit USA Committee Chairs and Commercial Service delegates may submit requests for appointments with those exhibitors who have not opted out of appointments with these categories.

Once the online appointment requests period closes, system-generated appointment schedules are distributed and manual scheduling opens. You will receive your schedule a few weeks before IPW.

Please keep in mind that if you have not paid your registration in full, you will not have access to request appointments with exhibitors. Log into My IPW to determine if you have an outstanding balance.

Manual Scheduling

Manual Scheduling opens after the appointment schedules are distributed. Through the manual scheduling system, you can view and print your appointment schedule; request additional appointments with exhibitors who have similar open appointments; request cancellations; and accept or decline any requests made to you. Please respond promptly to all appointment requests you receive through the manual scheduling system so that your fellow participants can make the most of their schedule.

Over the course of the three show days, there is the potential for a total of 25 appointments during the official Business Appointments Sessions; the Manual Scheduling process offers an opportunity to request additional appointments to fill open slots.
