Yesterday, U.S. Travel Association’s IPW came to a close. At the leading inbound travel trade show, delegates had the opportunity to connect in-person—conducting business, renewing relationships, and securing new partnerships around the world. The past few days were spent securing America’s position as a foremost global travel destination and showcasing the best of what the U.S. has to offer.

As the event concluded, here are some additional highlights from U.S. Travel’s IPW.
