The 2014 North American Beekeeping Conference & Tradeshow will be held January 7-11, 2014, at the River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This will be an ABF conference like no other conference you’ve ever attended. We are shaking things up and making changes to the structure of the conference, based on your feedback.
Here are just a few changes you will see:
Additionally, we’ve gone to a “call for papers” process in an effort to invite new speakers to the conference. If you, or anyone you know, is interested in presenting, please submit the Call for Papers form for consideration. Call for Papers forms are due by Friday, August 16, 2013.
We will continue to have our SIG meetings on Wednesday afternoon, the Auxiliary Breakfast/Meeting on Thursday morning, the optional Social activity on Thursday evening, the Foundation Luncheon on Friday, as well as the Honey Show, and the ABF Annual Banquet on Saturday evening. Other traditional ABF activities will continue as well, including the live and silent auctions.
As you can see, this is sure to be an exciting conference and one we can’t wait to share with you. Registration is now open, and we encourage you to make your plans to attend now.
Please be sure to visit the conference website for additional information, including hotel accommodations, schedule at a glance, exhibitor & sponsor opportunities and much more.
We look forward to seeing you in Baton Rouge!
