While daytime at IPW is jam-packed with business appointments, meetings and functions, IPW takes on a different atmosphere in the evenings when scores of parties,  after-parties and even after the after-parties are hosted by the various tourist boards and destinations.  Purely in the line of duty of course, Declan Mescall (Features Editor Travelbiz) attended a number of these parties.   Greg Evens (Visit New Jersey) hosted a great fun themed Spy Night event and Destination D.C and NYC & Company hosted a very flamboyant event in the Town Danceboutique, a LGBTQ venue which was reserved exclusively for IPW delegates.
