Apiculture New Zealand extends to you a warm and friendly invitation to join us at our National Conference 2016 in Rotorua, a spectacular destination.

The theme for 2016 is:     Bee Business – Science : Health : Trade

This conference is a fantastic opportunity to gather information and learn more about your industry; there is an extensive list of high quality speakers, seminars and workshops, coupled with the largest trade exhibition ever assembled for our industry.

By attending conference, you are supporting your industry, and the many sponsors and trade exhibitors who are part of the wider industry team.

If you can’t attend the entire conference you are able to purchase one day registrationsAll three days of the conference are suitable for ALL beekeepers, both hobbyist and commercial, packers, exporters and the supplier network.  For those unable to attend during the week, the Sunday is able to be attended at a ‘single day’ price.

Let’s take this opportunity to have some fun, and to share our stories and tales with fellow delegates and attendees from the national and international apiculture community.

Please be aware that New Zealand has extremely strict biosecurity rules around beekeeping and apiculture, International Delegates must not bring in to the country any used beekeeping equipment, used beekeeping clothing or bee products (honey, wax, pollen, etc) this is most important.

We look forward to seeing you there!
