Los Angeles is readying to host IPW 2024, the U.S. Travel Association’s mega annual event that will see thousands descend on the city for thousands of meetings.

As the leading inbound travel trade show, past IPWs have generated more than US$5.5 billion in future travel by connecting U.S. travel exhibitors with travel buyers and media to promote their product and negotiate future business, securing America’s position as a foremost global travel destination and showcasing the best of what the U.S. has to offer.

In celebration of the event, Wayfarer this week takes you to Downtown Los Angeles in Episode 12 of Series 2, and award-winning host James Gregory Wilkinson looks at some of the best things to see and do in the City of Angels.

In the episode, Wilkinson heads to three of the city’s best craft breweries in the Arts District and Downtown, and checks out hot retail and restaurant spot, The ROW DTLA.

At The ROW DTLA, find top restaurants, retail stores, weekly markets and events in former warehouses that date back to 1917 and on this segment, Wilkinson finds some of the best spots.

In Series 2 of Wayfarer, being broadcast online across the world and onboard Fiji Airways, Wilkinson takes viewers across the globe to some of the best hotels, bars, restaurants, galleries and attractions that several of the world’s leading destinations have to offer.
