Save your Budget in Cooperative Buying
Need to save money? APCA Cooperative buying sessions will take place to help schools save money by forming tours of showcasing artists and services. Schools meet in an organized setting to stretch their event budgets. Pre-conference workshops will be held for anyone needing information on the APCA cooperative buying program or our full time enrollment cooperative buying discounts. Learn more about cooperative buying by clicking here.

Enjoy Live Showcases
At each conference, we have live showcases of the hottest entertainment in the college market. You and your student board will have the opportunity to preview a variety of live talent to get an idea of how you could display them at your campus events. 4 of these showcases even include a hot meal! Learn more about our live showcases by

Network in Exhibit Halls
While you’re in the exhibit halls, network with fellow students, book attractions for your campus events, or experience the latest cool novelty items! Every APCA Exhibit Hall will feature vendors (APCA member agencies, artists, speakers, etc.) representing the showcasing attractions. All exhibiting vendors are APCA members, and bound by APCA ethics and sensitivity guidelines. Conference exhibitors can be found in their booths during designated exhibit hall hours. They can answer questions, explain rider and contract terms, and generally give member schools all the information they need to bring an artist or service to their campus event.

Educational Sessions for Organizations

Example topics include: student government, marketing, leadership, engagement, assessment and much much more! You can preview educational sessions at the top of this page. Opportunities for advisors and students to present are available (spots are limited and not guaranteed).
