Connect with Registered Media On-site and Online

IPW has bundled together the two most popular media opportunities into one Media Marketplace Package providing greater value and maximizing the visibility of participating U.S. suppliers. The package includes a full day of Brand USA Media Marketplace activities on Monday, June 3, plus full access to the IPW Online Press Room.

The package can be purchased via the online shopping cart and is expected to sell out quickly. To participate in Brand USA Media Marketplace, U.S. suppliers must be a registered booth holder and purchase a Media Marketplace Package in advance ($1,150 through November 26, 2018; $1,350 beginning November 27, 2018).

If you plan to assign one of your registered booth delegates to staff the Media Marketplace table, you do not need to purchase a One-Day Media Marketplace Delegate registration ($450) for that person. (Note: At least one booth delegate must remain in the booth to take appointments.) Learn more.

The Brand USA Media Marketplace takes place on Monday, June 3. See schedule below.

What is it?

This all-day event is the best way for U.S. suppliers to connect with media and to pitch story ideas on-site. The Brand USA Media Marketplace floor will be arranged alphabetically by state and will include sections for national companies and the federal government.

How Does it Work?

The Brand USA Media Marketplace offers up to 20 appointments each lasting 10 minutes with a five-minute cross time. Appointments are pre-scheduled during the manual scheduling period only. All Media Marketplace delegates (international and domestic media and PR delegates from U.S. supplier companies that purchased the Media Marketplace package) will be notified when this option is open.

IPW Online Press Room

The IPW Online Press Room offers exhibitors and booth-sharing organizations not participating in the Brand USA Media Marketplace the opportunity to interact with the nearly 500 international and domestic journalists attending IPW, pitch ideas for new and exciting U.S. travel stories, and drive traffic to their trade show booth. Available through the online shopping cart for just $495.

Participating exhibitors and booth-sharing organizations can upload four new press releases and photos, one video, and unlimited archived releases to a dedicated, branded online press room. The four new releases will also be included in the daily IPW U.S. Supplier news feeds sent to all participating journalists. The IPW Online Press Room goes live 30 days before the start of IPW and remains available until August 31, giving media a valuable resource for their U.S. travel stories.


More than 84% of media logged in and started researching stories within 24 hours of the site going live last year.


During the show itself, there were 900+ unique log-ins from media doing additional research while on-site.
