New Orleans set to host 2016 IPW

On Wednesday, the United States Travel Association stated that New Orleans would be the place for 2016 IPW – the 1st time the popular travel industry event has come back to Crescent City since the year 2002. In the past, this place has hosted the annual 5 day event, earlier known as the International Pow Wow, in the year 1993 and in 1979.

IPW is the biggest travel trade event in Northern America — a 1 stop scope for United States attractions, businesses and destinations to present themselves to thousands of powerful travel pros from the international markets.

The concern transacted at the IPW has been computed by independent firm named Rockport Analytics to add almost 1 million extra international travelers as well as US$ 1.7 billion in international tourism spending to recent host cities, and 8.8 million extra international visitors as well as $28 billion in international tourism expenditure to the United States economy overall.

Roger Dow, the United States Travel Association chief executive officer and President, told that one of the major objectives of IPW is to spotlight the economic profits of travel and tourism, as well as few cities anywhere in the world understand that equation and New Orleans. New Orleans epitomizes the idea of rolling out the welcome mat for your guests. They are thrilled that IPW’s exhibitors as well as attendees would be able to experience this utterly unique American destination for the first time in over a decade.
