Dear Bee Friends,
Please find HERE the official announcement concerning the deliberation adopted to postpone to August-September 2022 the 47th Apimondia Congress that was originally planned to take place in September 2021.
This postponement was a very hard and difficult decision to take, but having in mind first the well-being of the beekeepers, exhibitors and all would-be participants, the Apimondia Executive Council in conjunction with the Russian Local Organising Committee of the Congress, after due consideration of the foreseeable global situation linked to the Covid-19 pandemic in the next future, resolved that this was the most reasonable and sound decision we could take.
As soon as we set the definite dates of the event, we will post them on the website.
Let us all meet in Ufa in 2022! We look forward to having a great Apimondia Congress there.
Two educational beekeeping conferences: "Honey Fraud Industry" 8th November 2020 and "Back to basics, back to bees" 5th and 6th February 2021.

World Bee Day - "Bee engaged" - Video
On the occasion of the third observance of World Bee Day, FAO, in partnership with the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), the Apicultural Science Association of China (ASAC), the Permanent Representation of Slovenia and Apimondia, will hold a virtual celebration. The event will highlight the importance of bees and their products, and the role of beekeepers. It will also shed light on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the beekeeping sector and how it affects production, markets and as a consequence, the livelihoods of beekeepers.
