Host An Event

  • Your event may fall on any date between September 8-12.
  • Your event cannot compete with an official API World event. Evenings are recommended.
  • To host a Partner Event, fill-out the host request form.

Guidelines / Instructions

  • You are responsible for all productions and logistics around your event, including procuring venue and vendors, as well as managing registration, food & beverage, content / speakers
  • Partner events should create their own registration so that you can capture registrant leads and manage your capacity
  • Partner events should set their registration capacity at 2.5X the event capacity since on average free API World partner events will see 40% of registered attendees actually show up to the event
  • Partner events are required to list “API World 2018” in the title of their event, and provide a link to http://apiworld.co/ prominently within the description of their event
  • Partner events must allow API World pass holders to attend their event for free, since we advertise to pass holders that their passes will get them into all partner events

  • Open House at your office
