Previous Events


The 2023 conference was in Roanoke, VA from October 29-November 2, 2023.

Many thanks to everyone who attended, presented, and sponsored SRAPPA 2023 at Hotel Roanoke. This was our first year to ever host the conference over Halloween, and although there were mixed reviews in the beginning, the Monster Bash costume party was a huge hit!

Special thanks to all of the sponsors and volunteers who helped make the conference a success, but especially to VAPPA and Hotel Roanoke! We definitely leveled up this year.


The 2022 conference was in Tampa, FL from October 1-5, 2022.

Many thanks to everyone who attended, presented, and sponsored SRAPPA 2022 at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, despite Hurricane Ian. We definitely put the conference’s theme of “Upgrade & Reboot: Maintaining for our Future” to the test!

Special thanks go out to our host institution Berkeley Preparatory School, all of our Business Partner Sponsors, and the City of Tampa for making this event possible! 


The 2021 conference was in Mobile, Alabama from October 9-13, 2021. The Expo took place at the Mobile Convention Center directly across the street from the hotel.

Today, Mobile offers stunning French architecture, the 1850 Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception features intricate German stained glass, and this gulf port is home to the WWII-era USS Alabama battleship which is anchored in Battleship Memorial Park.


Originally taking place in Tampa, FL, the 2020 conference ended up being a virtual conference due to COVID-19. Many challenges presented themselves during SRAPPA’s first-ever virtual conference but in the end, attendees gathered virtually to hear from some amazing speakers and interact with the wonderful business partners and sponsors that helped us through those uncertain times. We will return to Tampa in 2022 to turn virtual into reality.


SRAPPA 2019 takes place on October 5–9 in the beautiful and historical city of Covington, KY at the confluence of the Ohio and Licking Rivers in the Northern Kentucky Convention Center. Cincinnati, OH lies directly across the river from the Covington area.


SRAPPA 2018 takes place on October 6–10 t the Hyatt Regency in the beautiful downtown Greenville, SC. Greenville offers a quaint Main Street, bustling art scene, bike-friendly attitude, girlfriend getaways and mancations, picturesque parks, fun-filled festivals and sweet Southern hospitality.
