Scheduling a Showcase
APAP|NYC 2014 opens on Friday, January 10. 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 are almost always the most competitive in terms of numbers of showcases and artists to see. Many showcases are repeated in order to offer presenters and other conference attendees with as many opportunities as possible to see an artist's work.
