Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) brings together more than 400 of the most important performing arts presenters and producers from around Australia and overseas - it is a unique networking opportunity for anyone whose livelihood is in the performing arts. The Adelaide Fringe will be in full swing and the Adelaide Festival - one of the most important arts festivals in Australia - opens on APAM’s closing day.
APAM, Adelaide Fringe, Adelaide Festival form perfect environment for a stimulating performing arts market; you can network, do serious business and see more than 50 excerpts and full-length productions within five days.
During APAM there will be presented the Spotlight program. It is a vibrant mix of contemporary Australian dance, music, theatre and hybrid arts productions. Spotlight artists and companies will be selected by an industry panel and it is anticipated that around 40 productions will be showcased in various formats.
There’ll also be carried out a special Searchlight program. APAM will present up to 15 pitch sessions of 15-20 minutes each, designed to bring artists, companies, producers, directors and other creative individuals together to present and discuss ideas for new projects and works in development.
Consideration will be given to well-developed concepts and works in progress with a view to international touring. Works that cannot be presented in the Spotlight format will also be considered.
As a foreign performing artist, you could register as a delegate and network with the many venue managers and producers in attendance, or perhaps meet other artists with whom you can collaborate in the future.
As a booth holder or a delegate, buyer or seller, you can develop relationships with artists, producers, presenters, venue managers, festival directors and more from around Australia, New Zealand and the world.

Details of delegates whose registrations are received after 15 January 2010 will not be printed in the APAM Guide due to tight printing deadlines.
