This year, APAP|NYC wants you to take the challenge and explore the possibilities! The huge impact the performing arts has on businesses, industry and in the community will all convene at the NY Hilton Hotel January 11 – 15th
If you’re a performer, this is the place to show off your stuff to the buyers who represent the industry and have a future vision for their businesses. Buyers come from far and wide to learn, watch and continue the business of show. There’s always new talent to be discovered, old and new colleagues with whom to network; those who understand have similar visions in the arts. There are 3,500 + professionals in attendance.
The 2013 conference offers open space formats, interactive dialogue sessions, member-organized forums, and a consultation salon with experts, pre- and post-conference resources to help you sustain your work and ensure the vitality of your organization and the arts in your community. During the course of the 5 days, you will be revitalized thru many of the following planned events:
APAP Plenary Sessions - A highlight of the conference, the plenary sessions bring together all attendees in the Hilton New York Trianon and Grand Ballrooms to hear from some of the most inspiring creative thinkers, thought leaders and artists from around the world who have influence on our field and our future.
The Expo Hall provides an opportunity to experience the best of the industry - talent, expertise, services. It is the largest global performing arts market for presentation.
