Following on from the tremendous success of IPW Denver 2018, Anaheim in California will host the mega travel event and the largest generator of travel to the U.S in June 2019.

IPW is the most significant travel event of its kind in the world that sees 6,000 delegates representing U.S. travel organisations from every region of the country join international and domestic buyers and media from 70+ countries to meet face-to-face to foster future travel business to the United States.

DIARISE NOW: The three day 2019 event will kick off in Orange County with a magical opening night experience at Disneyland Resort on Sunday, June 2nd, and close with a spectacular closing ceremony event at Knott’s Berry Farm on June 5th.

There’s a sneaky rumour too that the eagerly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort may be open in time for IPW 2019.

Hosting IPW for the second time, Visit Anaheim will showcase key elements of the destination’s substantial $6 billion destination development investment showing its uncommon character traits at every turn.

“Characters are in Anaheim’s DNA,” said Jay Burress, president & CEO, Visit Anaheim.

“We’re a city built on imagination, possibility and creativity, beginning with Walt Disney’s genius and vision. That spirit is inspiring a new cast of uncommon characters and unleashing a fresh wave of sights, sounds, flavours and fun across our landscape that we’re excited for you to experience during IPW 2019 in Anaheim.”

In between the two major events, attendees and media will experience key elements of the destination’s development surge including a wide-variety of new hotel product, revamped neighbourhood spaces, mixed-use developments, and new innovative culinary and brewery offerings by local Anaheim characters.

Visit Anaheim will also implement an enticing lineup of events and tours throughout Orange County to showcase the area’s world-renowned tourism offerings.

“Tourism is our #1 industry in Anaheim and IPW allows us to be front and centre to thousands of influencers, driving international tourism to our destination,” said Burress. “Our plan in 2019 is simple – transform the way you see Anaheim by the experiences you are treated to during your stay.”

IPW2019 will again host a large contingent of Australian buyers and media and if IPW2018 Denver was any indication of how important IPW is to its host city and the U.S travel industry, we’re in for an incredible show.
