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. 

What is APAP|NYC 2022?

APAP will host a hybrid conference in 2022---making the most of meeting together in-person in New York City, while also maximizing access, engagement and convenience through our online platform.

What does a hybrid conference look like?

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 - in-person and online
  • Plenaries - in-person and online
  • Networking - in-person and online
  • "EXPO Hall"/Exhibit Space - in-person and online
  • Pitch Sessions
  • UP NEXT! - in-person and online
  • Showcases - in-person and online

When and where will the conference happen?

The in-person conference will take place as scheduled, January 14-17, 2022, at the New York Hilton Midtown. There will be online elements that overlay the in-person conference.

The online conference will have a wider footprint, with activities and engagement happening and content being made available on the online conference platform as early as late 2021 and continuing after the in-person conference in January 2022.
