About APAP|NYC

The APAP|NYC conference is one of the largest gatherings of performers, agents, presenters, and producers in the world. Every January, the industry comes together to share its stories, experiences and insights from across the country and around the world. Annually, the conference focuses on new and emerging ideas affecting the field, wide-ranging speakers and opportunities to connect with arts leaders who shape what we see, hear and experience in the performing arts in the U.S. and globally.

In January 2022, APAP|NYC returns in person to New York City and online! Learn more here.

The in-person APAP|NYC+ 2022 conference will take place January 14-17, 2022 at the New York Hilton Midtown. APAP will also host a robust online conference, January 10, 11, and 13, and including events during the in-person conference. Online pre-conference events, free and open-to-the-public, happen December 6-8, 2021. 

Advance registration for all events is required.
