Scheduling a Showcase
APAP|NYC 2015 opens on Friday, January 9. The most popular dates for showcasing are Saturday and Sunday evenings during the conference when the greatest number of attendees is in New York. These days, therefore, are also the most competitive because there are so many showcase choices for presenters to attend. Many showcases are repeated to offer presenters and other conference attendees multiple opportunities to see an artist's work.
It's no question that showcases and the EXPO Hall are the two most prominent reasons presenters from around the world attend APAP|NYC. Many exhibitors and showcase producers try NOT to schedule showcases during EXPO Hall hours.
