Register for an IPW Express Booth through IITA and save $$$!

For the third year in a row, IPW is offering an Express Booth option to help Inbound Operator companies that are ready to step into the appointment selling marketplace for the first time or for those companies that need a less expensive alternative to a full booth.

On your behalf, IITA has secured a number of Express Booths that will provide Inbound Operators a savings off the IPW rates!

Express booths are a turnkey package for one fee that includes a single booth, one exhibitor registration, booth furniture and company signage. Express booth exhibitors will receive 22 pre-scheduled appointments and may add appointments to fill their schedule during open manual scheduling.

BONUS! Every IITA Inbound Operator member that purchases an Express Booth may also register one Buyer delegate for FREE, and the Buyer delegate will receive up to 42 appointments and 5 NIGHTS FREE HOUSING from IPW.

This offer is only available to IITA Inbound Operator members. Nonmembers may join the association in order to be eligible.
