Tour operators who sell travel to the USA can now take advantage of a powerful new Internet tool created by the Travel Industry Association of America (TIA) that will make it much easier for them to create USA travel packages. The new website, PowWowOnline.com, is a searchable, business-to-business web site that matches international tour operators with US travel suppliers based on price, location and other criteria.

PowWowOnline.com is modeled after International Pow Wow the largest Visit USA travel trade show in the world. Only international buyers and USA suppliers who participate in International Pow Wow can participate in PowWowOnline.com. International tour producers are given exclusive access to special rates and packages that are only available to tour operators and not the general public.

"Pow Wow Online takes the traditional travel trade show to the next level by creating a 24-hour, 365-day a year travel trade marketplace on the Internet," said Betsy O'Rourke, TIA Senior Vice President of Marketing.
