New Orleans will host the travel industry's premier international business marketplace, IPW. IPW, formerly known as International Pow Wow, will take place June 18-22, 2016. The New Orleans CVB would like to welcome these prestigious delegates into your establishments by offering exclusive discounts on restaurants and nightlife for the two free evenings on Monday, June 20th and Tuesday, June 21st. We ask that you join us in this effort by providing discounts or value added offers for the attendees. This is a great opportunity for you to showcase your business. All offers received will be posted on the IPW New Orleans microsite and promoted to the attendees. They will be instructed to verbally identify themselves as an IPW delegate to receive offers. We encourage our convention attendees not to wear their badge when not in their meetings.

IPW will bring over 1200 international and domestic highly qualified buyers and 500 international journalists from over 70 countries. It is the largest travel marketplace in North America and represents the most anticipated opportunity for U.S. destinations, attractions, restaurants and businesses to showcase themselves to thousands of influential travel professionals from international markets every year. We expect approximately 6500 attendees.

New Orleans has been honored to host IPW in 1979, 1993, 2002 and now 2016. Our next opportunity to physically show all that we have to offer will be 2025. Let's make them feel extremely welcome and impress upon them that we are ready and why New Orleans needs to be part of their client's future plans....
