NORTH AMERICA
Media Trip Summaries

Golden Gate bridge vivid day landscape, San Francisco, California

IFWTWA offers our travel-writer content-creator regular members media and press trips each year. These events span various North American and International locations and occur about six times per year. 

Members submit their applications for vetting by Association media trip committees. Ultimately, it's the destination hosts who decide which member to accept for a given trip.

Our media trip committees work closely with our Associate members and other destination management hosts to craft visits designed to give our content creators maximum exposure to notable food, wine and travel activities and topics.

Following are media placements resulting from more recent North American trips. IFWTWA thanks our members' hosts and local tourism for coordinating their stay. All opinions expressed are the individual writer's and not those of or influenced by IFWTWA.
