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 qualified members of the media.

Eligibility

Media interested in attending IPW should submit their name and credentials for review to the International Advisory Committee (IAC) Chair in their region, 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.
