New Orleans needs your help to welcome 1700 international travel buyers and journalists along with 4700 tourism industry leaders during IPW 2016, June 18 - 22. This event has been nicknamed the "Super Bowl of International Tourism". Help us show our clients how welcome they truly are! The Convention and Visitors Bureau is looking for 500 ambassadors to assist with meet and greet, staffing hospitality desks and more. Volunteer with your friends, family or co-workers.

Ambassadors will receive an IPW New Orleans Ambassador shirt to wear during their shift. Additionally, they will receive one entry for each shift they complete for a chance to win an IPad Air. The more shifts you work, the more chances you have to win. The following shifts are currently available.
