U.S. Travel Association has 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.

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. Each IPW international travel trade show draws around 5,000 delegates, including 1,400 international delegates, for 90,000 scheduled business appointments over three days.

“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.”
