New host cities announced for U.S. Travel’s IPW


Two new cities and three former sites chosen as hosts for association’s international travel trade show

WASHINGTON – U.S. Travel Association announced the 2026-2030 host cities for its IPW international travel trade show: Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida (2026), New Orleans, Louisiana (2027), Detroit, Michigan (2028), Denver, Colorado (2029) and Anaheim, California (2030).

Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Detroit, Michigan, will serve as first-time IPW hosts.

“By serving as host site of IPW, each of these world-class cities will play a key role in growing inbound travel and strengthening the U.S. economy,” said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Geoff Freeman. “U.S. Travel looks forward to working with these diverse destinations to bring the world to America – and ensuring IPW remains a can’t-miss event on the global travel industry’s calendar.”

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.

U.S. Travel’s IPW future dates:

  • 2026: Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida – May 18-22
  • 2027: New Orleans, Louisiana – May 3-7
  • 2028: Detroit, Michigan – June 10-14
  • 2029: Denver, Colorado – May 19-23
  • 2030: Anaheim, California – June 1-5

The next two host cities – Los Angeles on May 3-7, 2024, and Chicago on June 14-18, 2025 – were previously announced by the U.S. Travel Association.

“The United States faces intense competition in the race for global travelers,” said Freeman. “IPW will remain an indispensable tool in attracting international visitors and positioning the United States as the world’s top travel destination.”
