APPO's National Conference is the only educational conference for photo organizers in the world. The conference features dozens of small group and interactive learning workshops, led by an impressive collection of passionate experts and certified photo organizers. We cover all aspects of the art and business of photo organizing. With topics focused on photo organizing techniques, skill development, client management, pricing and profitability, and marketing and sales, we're excited to offer an educational lineup that meets the needs of today’s astute photo organizer. We proudly partner with top-quality sponsors and vendors, eager to support the growing field of photo organizing with a marketplace designed to showcase leading-edge products and services.

The host hotel for this year’s conference is the luxurious Tamaya Resort & Spa, located in New Mexico on the Santa Ana Pueblo, between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.  


What’s happening?


Mingle and socialize
with your peers while you enjoy the luxurious Tamaya Resort & Spa and the local culture through onsite and offsite activities and excursions. A selection of optional activities will be available on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for those wishing to arrive early to enjoy this stunning resort and local culture.

Optional Pre-Conference Intensives begin on Wednesday and are ideally suited for those seeking extended in-depth training in an intimate, small group atmosphere. Interactive workshops led by experienced facilitators over 1 ½ days provide the ultimate learning experience for the serious entrepreneur.

The Main Conference starts Thursday evening after dinner and continues through Saturday night.  

Crowd-pleasing topics and industry-specific training dominate the main stage during General Sessions with a variety of industry speakers and experts.

The Marketplace is a prominent feature during the General Sessions, where Sponsors and Vendors showcase their products and services. Many products will be highlighted during “commercial breaks” and “product spotlights” from the main stage.

Breakout Sessions on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning feature a wide range of timely, relevant topics led by photo organizing experts and industry professionals. Attendees will customize their learning experience by choosing sessions that speak to the greatest need in their business. These interactive, classroom-style workshops are 90 minutes long.

Finally, we’ll celebrate our 10-year anniversary in style as we gather together one last time, dancing the night away during Saturday night’s Farewell Dinner Party.


APPO’s 7th National Conference will challenge, enrich, inspire and engage you, whether you’re just launching your business or you’re a seasoned professional!
