U.S. Travel’s IPW 2016 will be held Saturday, June 18, through Wednesday, June 22, at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. IPW will have more than 1,100 exhibitor booths held by U.S. Suppliers of USA travel products and destinations and more than 5,000 attendees who are international travel buyers, domestic travel buyers and international journalists representing more than 70 countries.
One of the features of IPW 2016 will be a newly renamed Great Outdoors USA Zone, facilitated by NPPC. All of the major federal public land and water managing agencies will be there, along with federal offices key to accommodating international visitors. Also on Federal Row will be key businesses operating on public lands and our booth, which will include a Federal Row Information Center.
NPPC will help gateway communities and organizations that support active outdoor activities on federal lands and waters be a part of IPW for the first time, with smaller and more specialized organizations to gain floor access and have a base of operations that is scaled to their economic realities. And these new IPW participants will also be introduced to partners who can help them reach international markets effectively.
