NEW this year! In addition to exhibiting and showcasing, we have added pitch sessions to our 2021 event! Not only a valuable opportunity for artists, agents, producers and managers to share work, Pitch Sessions are invaluable for dialogue with potential collaborators on how to navigate presenting the arts during these unprecedented times.
Exhibitors who purchase a Premium EXPO Hall booth will have the opportunity to participate in a dedicated pitch session. Pitch sessions will be pre-recorded with a Live Q&A during which you can host a conversation with other conference attendees. They will run concurrently during dedicated Pitch Session times. Pitches will be available for replay on the APAP|NYC+ conference platform through January 30th.
Students, Artist Access, Individual Performing Arts Professional members are not eligible to host a pitch session as you must be an exhibitor to participate.
