ASSOCIATION OF PROFESSIONAL PIERCERS ANNUAL CONFERENCE & EXPOSITION


The 24th Annual APP Conference and Exposition will be held May 12-17, 2019, at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada. Join us in the heart of the strip for comprehensive dining, unwavering service, and a signature style which attracts high-rollers from around the world.

The APP Room Block will be available closer to the event. We encourage you to book with the host hotel; filling the room block has real impact on the organization’s ability to negotiate Conference spaces and the rates we are given both for the conference spaces and hotel rooms. The APP is able to retain its meeting spaces only when the room block is filled. Staying in the host hotel fosters a bigger sense of community at the event and keeps you close to your “home base” for the week!

The APP has more than two decades of providing Body Piercers, Studio Owners, Counter Personnel, Apprentices, Health Inspectors, and others in the Piercing Industry with the most current and comprehensive piercing education worldwide. Nowhere else will you be able to find comprehensive and current piercing education at one event, nor meet with the leaders in the industry. Our speakers, attendees, and vendors gather once a year to share information, discuss innovations in the industry, and socialize at this week long event.

The Exposition is the only one of its kind in this country. There is nowhere else you will see so much great jewelry, products, and body piercing related services all in one spot. We expect our Vendors to donate generously to our Raffle – the best odds in Vegas!

Scholarships like the Al D. Scholarship are available for those in need of financial assistance. Make sure to check for eligibility requirements and deadlines.

Social events include an Opening Party, a Banquet Dinner, Yoga, and more…
