Cooperative Buying Sessions
APCA Cooperative Buying is a program that gives the schools attending APCA conferences the ability to merge their buying power, offering performers/speakers a block of dates in a specified time period (for live events) in exchange for a lower price and sharing of travel costs (when applicable) with other schools. Cooperative Buying blocks are set up as follows:
In-Person Events on Campus - Sample pricing is as follows:
APCA Isolated Booking (a single date): $2500
2 events in 3 days: $2200
3 events in 5 days: $1900
5 events in 7 days: $1600
The more schools that book you in a block, the more money they save, and the more money you make!
Virtual Events - Sample pricing is as follows:
APCA Isolated Booking (a single date): $1200
2 schools booking an event within the same month: $1000
3 or more schools booking an event within the same month: $900
5 or more schools booking an event within the same month: $800
Virtual bookings obviously don't have the same travel constraints as in-person events, so you can form Virtual Blocks with schools all across the country!
Exhibit Halls & Virtual Engagement with Schools
Associates are APCA member agencies, artists, performers, speakers, etc. representing the showcasing attractions. All exhibiting associates 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 vendor to their campus event. Typical booths will have bios, pictures, sample contracts and cooperative buying forms available.
Associates featured in the virtual conference can be viewed online for the duration of the conference in the APCA workplace, not just during specific exhibit times! Associates can answer questions, explain rider and contract terms, and generally give schools all the information they need to bring an artist or vendor to their live or virtual event.
Artist and attraction profiles help you get noticed year round! Your profile appears in our Artist Gallery by genre(s) and this is open to all visitors. Schools can view your profile and submit an Attraction Interest (AI) form at any time during your membership year.
- You must be an active member.
- Agencies can only submit the number of artist indicated by their membership level (Basic 3 artists, Gold 7 artist, Platinum unlimited artist)
- Artist must be approved by APCA
