The U.S. Travel Association has revealed the 2026-2030 host cities for its IPW international travel trade show.

In 2026, the event will head to Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana in 2027, Detroit, Michigan in 2028, Denver, Colorado in 2029 and Anaheim, California in 2030.

Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Detroit, Michigan, will serve as first-time IPW hosts.

“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, in a statement. “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.”

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.

The event draws around 5,000 delegates, including 1,400 international delegates, for 90,000 scheduled business appointments over three days.

U.S. Travel’s IPW future dates are as follows:

  • 2026: Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida — May 18-22
  • 2027: New Orleans, Louisiana – May 3-7
  • 2028: Detroit, Michigan – June 10-14
  • 2029: Denver, Colorado – May 19-23
  • 2030: Anaheim, California – June 1-5

The next two host cities—Los Angeles on May 3-7, 2024, and Chicago on June 14-18, 2025—were previously announced by the U.S. Travel Association.

“The United States faces intense competition in the race for global travellers,” said Freeman. “IPW will remain an indispensable tool in attracting international visitors and positioning the United States as the world’s top travel destination.”
