Locating a Booth Near a Colleague

There is no guarantee you will be able to buy a booth next to or near a colleague, but there are steps to take to improve your chances! In advance of buying a booth, explore the interactive EXPO Hall floor plans to see which booths are available for purchase and use this information to coordinate with colleagues a time when you can both log in to buy your booth.

Digital Booth Enhancement

Stand out from the crowd! Highlight your booth in the online interactive EXPO Hall maps and move your booth to a special section at the top of the mobile app's booth listings when you purchase a digital booth enhancement. Simply select the "booth enhancement" option when purchasing your booth.

Payment Information

Payment is accepted online by credit card, and exhibitors may sign up for a two-installment, split payment process. In order to ensure electronic security, APAP does not store credit card numbers. Exhibitors must re-enter the credit card number to pay the balance on an account. Exhibitors will receive email reminders to pay the balance due. Any exhibitor with an outstanding balance 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.

Booth Badges

Booths come with several complimentary booth badges for your staff, roster artists and contractors. Please assign and purchase additional booth badges at your MyAPAPconference page by 5p.m. (EST), Tuesday, January 6, 2015 to save both money and time spent in long lines at onsite registration. After this date, booth badges may be assigned and purchased only at the APAP|NYC registration desk.

An exhibitor that knowingly registers an individual unaffiliated with the exhibiting organization will have its eligibility to exhibit at future conferences put under review.

EXPO Hall Policies
