Rockport Helps Visit San Antonio & Travel Texas Assess the Future Impact of IPW 2023

September 7th, 2021 |

San Antonio is slated to host IPW, the travel industry’s premier “speed-dating” event that brings U.S. destinations and travel suppliers together with international travel buyers from all over the world. Rockport Analytics conducted an analysis of survey responses from past IPWs along with an assessment of the inbound international tourism market in Texas and San Antonio to forecast the impact of hosting the event. In the three years following the event, we expect an additional 603,000 international visitors will be driven to Texas (395,000 to San Antonio) and future visitor spending will surpass $1 billion in Texas ($614 million in San Antonio) across the 3-year period.
