Attend Sessions

APAP|NYC+ sessions include activities attendees know and love and introduce new elements in response to the changes in the field.

  • Plenaries that inspire and respond to the critical issues that matter most right now.

  • Professional development sessions that provide you with practical strategies and resources for navigating the now and understanding how to adapt to an ever-evolving and unknown future.

  • Critical, interactive fieldwide conversations that require all of us (artists, agents, managers, producers, presenters) to come together to discuss the future of programming, the future of work, and the future of presenting, booking, touring and how we do business.

Network with Colleagues

Connect with colleagues, share ideas, discover new connections, deepen relationships and discuss issues in the field through networking events at APAP|NYC+.

  • Affinity Groups, Networking Sessions, Roundtable Discussions, and Safe Spaces to share innovations and challenges with YOUR people, gather with allies who share your values and priorities, greet missed colleagues, meet new colleagues, get the support you need, and engage in more intimate conversations about topics you care about. Good for introverts, too!
  • Speed Mixers where artists, producers, presenters and agent/managers, and everyone in the field can meet and discover projects, shared interests, or information in a fast-paced, time-effective and interactive format.
