Purchase Your Booth

Booths in the APAP|NYC EXPO Hall are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, based on your organization's number of years of consecutive exhibiting in the EXPO Hall. 

Remember to register for conference first and buy your booth early—the EXPO Hall sells out every year!

How do I buy a booth?

In order to purchase a booth, you must be a current APAP member and a full registrant for APAP|NYC 2020 (Artist Access, Student registrants and Board Track registrants cannot buy a booth). Here is the three-step process for purchasing a booth:

  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 and keep your membership current in order to access important conference information and to check in on-site at the conference. Confirm your membership status here.

  2. Register for APAP|NYC! ‚ÄčAt full conference registration is required to buy a booth. After you have registered for and purchased a booth, you will receive additional complimentary booth badges for booth staff, depending on the size of your booth.

  3. Purchase your booth(s). Once you are registered for APAP|NYC, log in to MyAPAPConference (coming soon). On that page, click Purchase a Booth and follow the steps to select the booth of your choice. Be sure to review the EXPO Hall floor plans as part of your process. A 50% deposit (by credit card) is required to reserve a booth.

Payment Information

Payment for your booth is accepted online by credit card, and you may pay in full or sign up for a two-installment, split payment process. All booth payment balances are due by October 16, 2019, or the booth and first payment are forfeit. In addition, any exhibitor with any outstanding APAP balances at the time the conference opens will not be allowed to retrieve registration materials or badges, load in, or occupy a booth without first satisfying all outstanding balances.
