IPW 2023 Showcased San Antonio's Hospitality and Authenticity

By: U.S. Travel Staff

Thank you, San Antonio, for your huge and heartfelt Texas welcome!

Attendees experienced your hospitality and authenticity from the moment they touched down at SAT, stepped foot into the Henry B. González Convention Center and at every stop along their IPW 2023 journey.

Marc Anderson and the teams at Visit San Antonio and Travel Texas along with the local community welcomed our delegates like only San Antonio could—shining a spotlight on what makes your city such a uniquely vibrant destination to visit—from your rich history and diverse cultural roots to your world-class local entertainment, attractions and culinary experiences.

IPW is the largest generator of inbound travel to the U.S., and last week, over 5,000 delegates from over 60 countries conducted 90,000 appointments which will power future travel to the United States. As the event host, San Antonio’s economy is projected to gain $614 million in international travel spending over the next three years.

Thank you for your partnership in hosting IPW 2023, while creating ‘Real & True’ memories for our delegates and inspiring the world to visit San Antonio.

And hat’s off to San Antonio’s own and U.S. Travel’s IPW General Manager, Malcolm Smith.
