American Program Bureau Celebrates 50 Years

“When I founded APB in the 1960s, the most important voices of a generation didn’t have a way to get their message out. They needed to be heard and I wanted to find a way to make it happen.”

-Robert P. Walker, Founder, President & CEO

BIG NEWS: It is American Program Bureau’s 50th Anniversary! We are celebrating all year long with #50ReasonsWhyAPB, brand new videos, gift card/book giveaways, charity donations & much more!

American Program Bureau 50 years

A pioneering force in the lecture industry, American Program Bureau (APB) has truly created the medium for people to see the most exciting and popular personalities, hear cutting-edge ideas and experience the leaders, activists and innovators of the day, live and in person, unedited and unfiltered.

Upon founding American Program Bureau in 1965, Robert P. Walker reinvented the rather staid lecture by creating “infotainment” to transmit the innovative intellectual excitement of a dynamic time in an entertaining format. To this day, APB’s culture of innovation continues to define each era while always looking into the future.
