What is the Exposition?This is the largest gathering of piercing related vendors in the world. Manufacturers often utilize this event to present innovative and new products/services to the piercing community. This is the venue in which you as a piercer can meet your vendors and manufacturers face to face, and see their products up close before buying. A vendor’s presence at the Expo does not constitute APP endorsement. The APP encourages all Attendees to shop responsibly.

Costs to Attend the Expo: If an attendee pays for the full conference package price, admission to the Expo for all four days is included in their fees. If you are paying for individual classes or just want to attend the Exposition - fees vary depending on how many days you want to attend. Please see the Fees/Costs page for details.
Can anyone attend the Expo? Admittance to the Expo is restricted to those affiliated with the industry as it is considered to be a trade show floor. These restrictions protect our vendors, who are selling to retailers at wholesale prices. Attendees who purchase an Expo pass will be asked to show proof of industry affiliation (business license, business card with name, other documentation). The APP can refuse entry to this event without proof of industry affiliation.

What is the APP doing about vendors selling products/jewelry which don’t meet APP guidelines/standards?While the APP encourages vendors to attend who meet or exceed our suggested jewelry standards, the APP does not and cannot screen any or all of the vendor’s entire product line. The APP has struggled with this issue for years. Overwhelmingly the majority of our attendees and vendors like the open floor policy of the Exposition. The APP requests all its attending vendors to select products or services that comply with the APP standards and mission for display and sale on the Expo floor. Please review all products thoughtfully and remember that, in many cases, the Conference and Expo are a learning experience for vendors as well.
