APAP|NYC 2020 Media Registration

Thank you for your interest in joining us and covering APAP|NYC 2020. APAP, the Association of Performing Arts Professionals, brings more than 3,600 artists and performing industry leaders to New York City every year.

APAP NYC 2015 Global Regional Forum


APAP|NYC is one of the largest gatherings of performers, agents, presenters, and producers in the world. Every January, the industry comes together to share its stories, experiences and insights from across the country and around the world. Annually, the conference focuses on new and emerging ideas affecting the field, wide-ranging speakers and opportunities to connect with arts leaders who shape what we see, hear and experience in the performing arts in the U.S. and globally.

Media Credentials

Media credentials are limited to working press that register and receive confirmation that they will receive a credential to APAP|NYC. This includes working press who cover the performing arts and related topics for one or more established news outlets. Freelancers who have applied and provided a letter from their editor stating the type of story they've been assigned to produce will be considered. We appreciate and ask that you send us links to or copies of your story/ies once they are posted, published or broadcasted. If you have not attended APAP|NYC in the past, samples of relevant published articles/stories are requested with your press credentials application.

We begin considering media applications beginning in early September 2019 through the weeks leading up to the conference, on a rolling basis. We will confirm the status of your application by the end of each month from October through December. Please check the schedule frequently for program updates.

Media Requests

We encourage media, whether attending the conference in-person or not, to request interviews, quotes and photos in advance. Requests to interview CEO Mario Durham and/or members of the APAP leadership team during the conference will be considered based on availability.
