Get ready Chicago, The U.S. Travel Association’s IPW Convention is coming to town! While it may be classified as a trade show, the IPW Convention is so much more than that.
On April 5th, Chicago will welcome over 1,000 United States travel organizations representing destinations, attractions, hotels, resorts, and various other components of the travel industry to McCormick Place. In addition, the IPW Convention will essentially bring the world to America with over 1,200 international and domestic buyers from 70 countries across the globe expected to attend.
To say this convention is the premier location for international business within the travel industry would be a huge understatement. This unique marketplace is the number one generator of travel to The United States of America and is projected to generate more than $4.7 billion in future travel to the U.S. Now THAT is something to get excited about!
While at the convention domestic and international buyers and sellers will execute exhaustive business negotiations within a three day span, a feat that would otherwise be nearly impossible in such a short time frame. The IPW Convention is cost effective and time efficient, allowing business to be conducted in a single location rather than companies having to arrange trips around the world. Nearly 90,000 appointments will be conducted throughout the duration of the convention.
The city of Chicago is proud to welcome such a grand event and looks forward to the promising business the IPW Convention will generate for The U.S. Travel Association. If you’re still looking to book a stay for this exciting event, Majestic Hotel, The Willows Hotel, and City Suites Hotel all offer some of Chicago’s finest hospitality. Make your reservation today!
