Visit San Antonio: Tourism Development, June 2019

U.S. Travel Association’s IPW is the leading international inbound travel trade show, driving $5.5 billion in future travel to the United States. It is a national showcase of America, where U.S. travel exhibitors connect with travel buyers and media from more than 70 countries to promote their product, negotiate future business and build relationships. IPW secures America’s position as a foremost global travel destination by increasing international visitation and showing the world the best of what the U.S. has to offer.  Visit San Antonio staff secured up to 120 appointments that were taken alongside five local partners (Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, Emily Morgan DoubleTree by Hilton Airport, SeaWorld San Antonio, Spurs Sports and Entertainment and Tejas Rodeo).  Domestic and international travel buyers were excited to hear about and are increasingly interested in promoting our city as there is more of an international interest in our type of destination.  Visit San Antonio will continue the conversation forward to strategize on how best to promote the destination and our partners through these vast distribution channels.  If you are interested in participating in IPW 2020, please reach out to Francisco Gallegos at franciscogallegos@visitsanantonio.com or (210)244-2021. 

Don’t forget, San Antonio will be hosting IPW in 2023. Hosting this conference will give us an opportunity to showcase San Antonio to buyers and media from all over the world.  This is your opportunity to put your organization/business front and center with international media and buyers.  There will be several opportunities for partners to participate through sponsorships.  If you have any questions, or are interested in learning more, please contact Dorah Benavidez at dorahbenavidez@visitsanantonio.com or at (210) 244-2016 .
