Our 22nd Annual Conference and Exposition will be in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2017.   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 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 – in past years, total value of prizes has exceeded $50,000, with more than 125 individual prizes donated.

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