IPW 2020 Las Vegas postponed to 2021

Las Vegas to Host IPW in 2021

U.S. Travel Association which announced the cancellation of its 2020 edition of IPW, the leading international inbound travel trade show, reveals new cities and dates for 2021 and 2022.

Las Vegas will now welcome IPW May 10-14 of 2021, and Chicago, which had been slated for 2021, has graciously agreed to serve as our host site in 2025.

Malcolm Smith, General Manager, IPW said, “We greatly appreciate the flexibility of our upcoming host cities. Other scheduled locations for IPW (Orlando in 2022, San Antonio in 2023, Los Angeles in 2024) remain unchanged.”

“When we meet next May, we’ll be convening in the newly constructed West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center following its major expansion. 

It’s difficult to express how much U.S. Travel, together with premier sponsor Brand USA and our hosts, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Travel Nevada, look forward to welcoming the global travel community next year. It will be a moment of rebuilding and reconnecting—and there will be much work to do coupled with much excitement when we’re together again,” added Smith.

“This is incredibly welcome good news amid the serious challenges facing the travel industry, the country and the world,” said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow. “Cancelling this year’s IPW was a difficult though clearly necessary call, and our future host cities came together to achieve a win-win outcome for the future of the event.”

Dow continued: “As we look to recover from this health emergency and the resulting economic crisis, it is fitting that we will be able to hold IPW in Las Vegas, a city that epitomizes the economic power of travel and tourism. We are deeply grateful to Chicago, which had one of the most successful IPWs in recent memory as a first-time host in 2014, for their flexibility, generosity and collaborative spirit.”
