APAX 2024 registrations are open

  |   News

The Australian Performing Arts Exchange (APAX) is the national arts market and professional development gathering for presenters, producers, artists and industry leaders to develop tours and cultivate the relationships that deliver presentation outcomes for audiences and communities across Australia.

APAX 2024 early-bird registrations are now open ahead of the full program launch.

APAX 2024 will once again be presented over three distinct but interconnected events. The program will begin with advance pitching online on Thursday 8 August, followed by the in-person national performing arts market, and the conference in Naarm/Melbourne.

The arts market (Monday – Wednesday) is the primary driver of national performing arts market development outcomes and prioritises connecting presenters, producers, and artists through a range of pitching, showcasing and networking opportunities.

The conference component (Thursday – Friday) supports the professional development of delegates and PAC Australia members, focussing on industry renewal, betterment of practice, and knowledge exchange, for the presenting sector.

To accommodate everyone’s time and budget, there are plenty of registration options available for attending including; the full event, just the arts market, just the conference, or a combination of both. In addition, ticket sales for live streamed sessions will open in late July, allowing your whole team to participate, thanks to our broadcast partner, Australian Digital Concert Hall.
