Join me at the APP 23rd Annual Conference!


Join the Association and hundreds of piercers as we come together to celebrate the 23rd  Annual Conference and Exposition! 

Our classrooms will once again fill with attendees from all over the world. Piercers, Studio Owners, Vendors, and Health Inspectors will all come together for a week of education and peer-to-peer sharing. Learn the core requirements as a new piercer just starting to work in the industry – or update your skills and information as an experienced practitioner. 

You need not be an APP member to attend the Conference!*

We return to Bally’s, July 15-20th, 2018

Spend your time outside of conference in one of their numerous restaurants or shops. Relax and treat yourself to a day at the spa, or in a private cabana next to the Bally’s Blu pool. While still embodying the classic spirit of Las Vegas, Bally’s is centrally positioned on the Strip to keep you close to all the finest in shopping, dining, gaming, and nightlife. Located next to Paris and across from the Bellagio, Bally’s is a Vegas value in a convenient location.

And now mere steps away from the LINQ Promenade 
and the High Roller, the newest hottest spot on the strip. 

The LINQ, an open-air retail, dining and entertainment district, anchored by the world’s tallest observation wheel, known as the High Roller. Topping out at 550 feet and measuring 520 feet in diameter, the High Roller eclipses both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer. Facing north and south (parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard), the wheel features 28 glass-enclosed cabins that unveil broad views of the famed-resort city in the 30 minutes it takes to complete one full revolution. 

The Exposition is the only one of its kind in this country. There is no where 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 $60,000, with more than 200 individual prizes donated.Social events include an Opening Party, a Banquet Dinner, Yoga, and more…

This year`s room rate is $101.00 a night!! BOOK NOW!

Be aware that one of the perks of booking in the block is that you are not required to pay for the resort fees. This alone is a savings of ~$30/night. This resort fee is typically mandatory, but is optional for APP room block rooms. Some attendees may wish to include it – but for those on a budget they will not be charged it. Resort Fee Includes: Daily in-room high speed internet access, All local calls, Fitness center access for two daily.

In addition, every year I hear from Attendees/Vendors who book elsewhere that the savings weren’t worth the hassle or the feeling like they weren’t a part of the group after classes let out, etc. After a long day and night of socializing being able to take one elevator back to your room is way better than taking a bus, taxi, or walking numerous blocks back to another hotel.

For guests that prefer to phone in their reservations, they may call our Reservation Center at 800-358-8777 to secure a reservation on your group block. Currently, the name of the group is listed as Association of Professional Piercers. Callers may also use your group code to identify the group, SBAPP8.

Please note that you and your guests may make reservations in the block at group rate until Tuesday, June 12, 2018.

We request that you 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!
