IPW is the annual tourism and travel trade convention in the USA, with over a thousand U.S. travel organisations selling their destinations, products and experiences to over 1,300 international and domestic buyers from more than 70 countries. It’s big business, generating more than $4.7 billion of tourism revenue per annum.
Each year it is held in a different host city, who use the opportunity to show off the best the city has to offer with huge and glamorous parties and tours. A small contingent of UK journalists are invited through Visit USA.
(Note. If you are wondering what IPW stands for – many do! – it used to stand for International Pow-Wow, but it was deemed insensitive to 1st nation Americans so you won’t see that mentioned anywhere these days.)
