Appointments at IPW
IPW connects travel buyers and suppliers of U.S. travel product (Exhibitors) during three intensive days of appointment-driven business activity. With paid booth registration fees, each leisure buyer will receive 44 appointments to meet face-to-face with travel suppliers, creating a highly productive, unique environment to negotiate future travel business to the U.S.
Appointment Scheduling at IPW
Business appointments at IPW are pre-scheduled based on international and domestic buyer and exhibitor requests according to a priority matching system.
Manual Scheduling opens after the computer-generated appointment schedules are distributed. Learn more about Appointments below.
How It Works
International leisure buyers may submit up to 50 appointment requests, with a maximum of 44 possible appointments per buyer.
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.
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.
Manual Scheduling Benefits
Over the course of the three show days, there is the potential for a total of 44 buyer appointments; however, it is possible that a buyer might not receive 44 pre-scheduled appointments through the matching process. The manual scheduling system offers an opportunity to request additional appointments to fill open slots.
Please keep in mind that if you have not paid your 2018 registration in full, you will not have access to request appointments, and exhibitors will not be able to request an appointment with you.
