2019 National APSE Conference

Exhibiting Information

Please join us for the 2019 National Conference-Gateway to Employment in St. Louis, MO from June 18-20th, 2019!

For 30 years, APSE has been the only national organization with an exclusive focus on inclusive employment and career advancement opportunities for people with disabilities.  APSE is a national nonprofit membership organization, founded in 1988 as the Association of People in Supported Employment.  APSE later changed its name to more accurately reflect its mission and the Association of People Supporting EmploymentFirst was born!

The National APSE Conference brings together businesses, individuals with disabilities and community leaders from across the country and around the world to network and discuss state-of-the-art strategies to ensure equitable employment for citizens with disabilities.

Based on past conference attendance, we anticipate up to 1000 attendees this year in St. Louis, MO. Last year the APSE Conference brought together representatives from 47 United States and Washington D.C., Canada, Singapore, Chiba, China, Saipan, Puerto Rico, Pakistan, Turkey and Finland!
