When you exhibit in the EXPO Commons, you can expect the following:
In order to purchase a space, you must be a current APAP member and an in-person registrant for APAP|NYC 2024. Note: Individual member types (student, iPAP, Artist Access) are not eligible to purchase exhibit space.
Here is the process for purchasing a space:
1. Confirm your APAP membership status. If you are not an APAP member or your membership expires before the conference, you will need to join APAP or renew your membership and keep your membership current in order to access important conference information, to login to the online platform and to check in on site at the conference.
2. Register for the conference. You must be a full registrant to purchase an exhibit space. When you register, please indicate your interest in exhibiting at APAP|NYC 2024, so that we can notify you of next steps in the exhibit space purchase process. (If you exhibited in 2023, you will automatically be notified.)
Note: Individual member types (student, iPAP, Artist Access) are not eligible to purchase exhibit space.
The exhibit space purchase process begins this summer on these dates according to tier status. The tier system is based on consecutive years of in-person exhibiting at the APAP|NYC conference.
25+ Years Tier – Opens July 25, 2023
15+ Years Tier – Opens July 27, 2023
10+ Years Tier – Opens August 1, 2023
1 – 9 Years Tier - Opens August 3, 2023
New exhibitors - Opens August 8, 2023
Once you have purchased your exhibit space (a.k.a. "booth"), you will be given instructions on how to obtain booth badges for members of your team. (As you are required to be a full registrant before you purchase your space, you will not need a booth badge yourself.)
Exhibitors who purchase 1 exhibit space may purchase up to 3 booth badges at $295 each. Exhibitors who purchase 2 exhibit spaces may purchase up to 7 booth badges at $295 each.
