The U.S. Travel Association announced Wednesday that New Orleans will be the venue for IPW 2016—the first time the blockbuster travel industry event has returned to the Crescent City since 2002. New Orleans also previously hosted the annual five-day event, formerly known as International Pow Wow, in 1993 and 1979.
IPW is the largest travel trade show in North America—a one-stop opportunity for U.S. destinations, attractions and businesses to showcase themselves to thousands of influential travel professionals from international markets. The business transacted at IPW has been calculated by the independent firm Rockport Analytics to bring nearly one million extra international visitors and $1.7 billion in international tourism spending to recent host cities, and 8.8 million additional international visitors and $28 billion in international tourism spending to the U.S. economy overall.
"One of the major objectives of IPW is to spotlight the economic benefits of travel and tourism, and few cities anywhere in the world understand that equation as well as New Orleans," said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow. "New Orleans epitomizes the idea of rolling out the welcome mat for your guests. We're thrilled that IPW's exhibitors and attendees will be able to experience this utterly unique American destination for the first time in over a decade."
Greater Miami and The Beaches had been previously announced as the host city for IPW 2016, but arrangements for the event were postponed when the City of Miami Beach Commission voted through a $500 million renovation and expansion of the city's convention center, set to begin in 2015 and last an estimated three years.
"We look forward to welcoming IPW back to Greater Miami and showcasing a new state-of-the-art Miami Beach Convention Center and the many assets and attractions of our ever-evolving destination," said Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau President and CEO William D. Talbert, III, CDME.
Dow praised the handling of the transition by both Miami and New Orleans, and called it a virtual certainty that IPW will return to Greater Miami and The Beaches once upgrades to its convention facilities are complete.
"We have to change venues for IPW 2016 for the best, most welcome reason we can possibly think of: Miami has wisely decided to make a huge investment in its convention space," Dow said. "The fiscal benefits of that decision will return to the city many times over, and in the meantime, we will have another top-shelf new facility to consider for a future IPW."
"We are thrilled to showcase New Orleans to the entire world marketplace for international travel by hosting IPW in June 2016," said Stephen Perry, president and CEO of the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau. "New Orleans is a magical place built on deeply rooted culture, innovative and authentic food, inspiring music and fabled architecture. We travel the world to meet with our travel industry partners to encourage them to bring business to New Orleans, but having them come and experience all that we have to offer first hand is an opportunity that is a catalytic game changer.
"The timing could not be better. Hosting this critical international selling and marketing show is a perfect fit with our plans for the world promotion of New Orleans' 300th Tricentennial birthday in 2018. This will result in hundreds of millions of new dollars of international capital flowing into New Orleans and Louisiana," Perry said.

Târgul de turism al Americii (POW WOW) reunește, în fiecare an, reprezentanții organizațiilor de turism și pe vânzătorii de servicii, într-unul dintre orașele cu tradiție ale țării.

Anul acesta, gazda Târgului organizat de TIA (Travel Industry Association) este orașul Anaheim din California, una dintre 'capitalele' divertismentului și agrementului de masă.
Între 20 și 25 aprilie se va afla la acest târg și o delegație de operatori de turism din România, din care fac parte: Dincă Dragoș (Class Travel); Carmen Demetriade (Happy Tours); Carmen Pavel (J'Info Tours); Mihai Constantin Bumbac (Magellan Turism); Ion Antonescu (Marshall Turism); Bogdan Viorel Preda (Micomis Travel&Tours); Bracha Blecher (Nova Travel and Tourism); Rodica Bărăgan (OK Travel); Mihaela Nicolescu (Olimpic International Turism); Roxana Dincă (Pan Olimpic Tours); Mircea Vladu (Prestige Tours); Daniel Mihăilescu (Real Turism); Sava Gheorghiu (Sava's Travel); Lucian Preda (Top Travel Service); Carmen Friptu (Travel Service); Eleonora Lungu (World Travel).
POW WOW 2006:
Au intrat în linie dreaptă pregătirile pentru ediția din acest an a Târgului de Turism al Americii - POW WOW 2006.
Gazda manifestării, care se va desfășura între 6 și 10 mai, este orașul Orlando din Florida. Participanții - în număr de peste 5500, din toate statele americane, precum și din 70 de țări din întreaga lume - au la dispoziție trei zile pline de întâlniri și de negocieri în cele 1300 de standuri care au fost rezervate de operatorii de turism americani.
Data limită a înscrierilor participanților a fost 7 aprilie, urmând ca până la 11 aprilie să fi fost definitivată lista întâlnirilor dintre operatorii și cumpărătorii de servicii turistice. Întâlnirile vor avea loc pe parcursul a trei zile, fiecare întâlnire neputând depăși 20 de minute, programul acestora este elaborat pe calculator în așa fel încât să nu existe timpi morți.
Ediția de anul trecut a POW WOW a fost găzduită de statul New York, în orașul New York, iar promotorul manifestării este TIA - Traveling Industry Association of America.
