International Pow Wow Becomes IPW in Las Vegas

International Pow Wow has become IPW, with a new logo and a new title for the US Travel Association’s long-running annual event that showcases the travel products of the Unites States of America.

IPW kicked off in Las Vegas this week with more than 6,300 delegates from 74 countries sweltering in 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Centigrade). These record breaking temperatures did not prevent them from getting down to business and enjoying the spectacular social programme.

All the attendees had the opportunity to experience the entertainment capital of the world with an invitation to see one of the many popular top shows for no charge. These included the Blue Man Group at Monte Carlo, Jersey Boys at Paris, Rock of Ages at the Venetian, Zarkana at Aria, and Vegas the Show at Planet Hollywood.
