In a message to delegates, Malcolm Smith, general manager of IPW advises them that Las Vegas will now welcome IPW May 10-14 of 2021, and Chicago, which had been slated for 2021, has agreed to serve as IPW’s host site in 2025.
Smith observes: “We greatly appreciate the flexibility of our upcoming host cities. Other scheduled locations for IPW (Orlando in 2022, San Antonio in 2023, Los Angeles in 2024) remain unchanged.”
And he continues: “When we meet next May, we’ll be convening in the newly constructed West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center following its major expansion.”
Smith says that: “It’s difficult to express how much U.S. Travel, together with premier sponsor Brand USA and our hosts, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Travel Nevada, look forward to welcoming the global travel community next year. It will be a moment of rebuilding and reconnecting—and there will be much work to do coupled with much excitement when we’re together again.”
And he adds that: “Until that time, we hope you are staying safe and, like all of us, preparing this remarkable industry for recovery following a most difficult situation.
We’ll continue to keep you apprised of developments later this week, including 2020 credits and refunds.”
And he concludes: “I invite you to visit ipw.com for further updates.
Mark your calendars now, and we’ll see you in Las Vegas May 10-14, 2021.”
