    The ACA is excited to host a pre-conference event in conjunction with the 2024 APAP booking conference.  Because it is pre-APAP, it is FREE and open to the public. This is the largest booking conference in the US and a vital resource for telling presenters and talent agents that American circus is here and available.

    The more people we can get here, the more they will consider circus as important.

    Where:  New York Hilton Midtown, 1335 6th Ave, New York, NY 10019

    Description:  Welcome one and all to a circus gathering you won't want to miss! Engage with and learn from some of the leaders, makers and dreamers who are creating new and exciting shows in the ever-evolving world of contemporary circus. This gathering is for the curious, the initiated and the "on the fence" folks who want to explore new pathways to reach a broad and eclectic audience. Hosted by the American Circus Alliance.

    Additionally:  If you intend to register for the APAP conference running all weekend, let us know that you'll be there by emailing Serenity at  


    Within the conference, the ACA is supporting the following panel, open to APAP conference attendees. We hope you can join us for this as well if you are registered.

    Saturday Jan 13th, 2 - 3 pm

    Demystifying Contemporary Circus: Presenters and Artists share knowledge, risk, challenges and rewards of presenting contemporary circus in a "post covid" world. Who is attending? What are the basic technical requirements? Is it for children only? Where are the US based companies located? Hosted by the American Circus Alliance.

The American Circus Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
