Interested in attending the U.S. Travel Association’s Pow-Wow? WTA is seeking major state attractions and destinations/regions to partner in a cooperative booth at this international trade show occurring April 21-25, 2012 in Los Angeles.
Pow Wow is the travel industry’s premier international marketplace and the largest generator of Visit USA travel – it is NOT a typical trade show. In just three days of intensive pre-scheduled business appointments, more than 1,000 U.S. travel organizations from every region of the USA, and close to 1,200 International and Domestic Buyers from more than 70 countries, conduct business negotiations that result in the generation of over $3.5 billion in future travel to the USA. At Pow Wow, buyers and sellers are able to conduct business that would otherwise be generated only through an exhaustive number of around-the-world trips. Click here for more information.
The cost to co-op share in the booth is approximately $3,800, which includes registration, the right to participate in the appointments, plus meals and events associated with the convention. Lodging, air and ground transportation and incidentals are the responsibility of the individual participants.
There is space for three more partners. For information and to commit, please contact me by end of day – December 16 – either by phone (206.660.6520) or email at Suzanne@WATourismAlliance.com.
