What is Actors Pro Expo?
Actors Pro Expo NYC was set up by actors for actors to help and encourage them in all areas of their lives as professionals. This incredible company runs expos throughout the year in the United States and in the U.K. In the U.K. the expos are run by Actors Pro Expo’s parent company, Surviving Actors. The expos help actors develop and sustain their careers and help them to create new opportunities for themselves. It does this by designing an environment where actors can meet industry professionals to help develop their career in acting.
