APAP|NYC is the world's premier gathering of the performing arts presenting, booking and touring industry and the annual members conference of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals.

The APAP|NYC+ 2022 in-person conference has been cancelled for January 2022, due to the surge of the Omicron variant. In response, we have extended the online conference to January 10-15, 2022 and are adapting key in-person events to an online format.

APAP|NYC+ 2022 

What is APAP|NYC+ 2022 online?

APAP has announced the cancellation of our in-person conference, January 14 through 17, 2022, due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant.

Programming and Schedule

Online Conference Programming

Whether you choose to participate in-person, online or both, substantial and engaging conference activities will happen on both tracks.

Unlike what we might conventionally think of as a hybrid conference, this will not be a conference where everything is livestreamed for a (secondary) virtual audience and nothing else. 

While there may be sessions that are livestreamed, there will be many unique opportunities and experiences designed with the intended audience---in-person or online---in mind, including:
Professional Development
Plenaries
Affinity Groups
Networking
Exhibiting
Speed Dating
Showcases

Showcasing

Attending Online Showcases

Open to conference registrants, APAP’s independent showcases connect those seeking new work with those producing world-class artistry in all disciplines and genres. All online, many showcases are prerecorded and some are being livestreamed.

Starting on December 20, information about APAP|NYC+ 2022 online independent showcases can be found via showcase listings in our online platform, Swapcard. New showcases will be added regularly as the January 2022 conference approaches.

Online showcases will be available for replay through January 31, 2022 on our online conference platform, Swapcard.

Producing Showcases

Artists, agents, and producers put on showcases each year. To produce a showcase at APAP, you must be an APAP member or an artist on the roster of an APAP member and be registered for the conference. (Student registrants are not eligible to showcase.)

As APAP does not curate showcases, you will need to determine what platform to use to feature your online showcase.
  • Online showcases may be pre-recorded or livestreamed.
  • Learn more about livestreaming platforms and guidance here.
  • Showcase producers are responsible for coordinating logistics and production for online showcases.

Purchase a Showcase Listing

Showcase listings are the easiest way to promote your performance.
  • You can purchase showcase listings through the conference registration system.
  • You must be a registered conference attendee to purchase a listing.
  • Showcase listings are $10 each. Each listing represents a single performance.
  • Showcase listings will appear in the APAP|NYC+ Showcase Calendar on the online conference platform, Swapcard, starting December 20, 2021.
  • The APAP|NYC+ Showcase Calendar will look and function much like the APAP Live Performance Calendar.
  • Additionally, you will be able manage and edit your listings directly.
  • Once you submit your listing to be published, it will be sent to APAP for one final review before it appears on the Conference Calendar.

Exhibiting

EXPO Commons

The all-online EXPO Commons marketplace offers artists, managers, agents, producers and vendors an unparalleled opportunity to meet presenters, sponsors, partners and other professionals who collectively lead and fuel the presenting and touring field worldwide. You can find all exhibitors on the Swapcard platform, beginning January 10, 2022.

Online exhibitors will have a have a dedicated online landing page on the conference platform where you can highlight your offerings and artists, as part of the comprehensive listing of all exhibitors.

Purchasing Your Online Exhibit Page

Landing pages in the online EXPO Commons on the conference platform will be listed alphabetically and can be tagged by searchable features like disciplines and genres. Purchase your landing page early to maximize your exposure when the conference platform opens in December.

Online EXPO Commons landing pages can be purchased by current APAP members who are online registrants for the APAP|NYC+ 2022 conference. (Student registrants are not eligible to purchase a landing page). A maximum of one landing page may be purchased.

In order to purchase a landing page, you must be a current APAP member and an online registrant for APAP|NYC+ 2022. (Student registrants are not eligible to purchase a landing page).

Here is the two-step process for purchasing a landing page:
  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 select the APAP|NYC Introductory Membership and Registration Combo) or renew your membership and keep your membership current in order to access important conference information and to login to the online conference platform. 
  2. Register for the conference and select the online registration rate and then add the Online EXPO Commons landing page. Conference registration is required to purchase an EXPO Commons page. If you are brand new to APAP and not yet a member, you may select the Introductory Membership and Registration Combo first and then add your EXPO Commons landing page.

If you have already registered, you can purchase your online EXPO Commons landing page by adding it to your registration. 

Here is a handy video from a webinar we held for our 2021 conference that shows you what you can do with your online booth landing page!
