As the leading inbound travel trade show, past IPWs have each generated more than $5.5 billion in future travel to the United States by connecting U.S. travel exhibitors with travel buyers and media to promote products, showcase U.S. destinations and negotiate future business.

The event draws around 5,000 delegates, including 1,400 international delegates, for 90,000 scheduled business appointments over three days.

  • 2026: Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida — May 18-22
