The 2013 North American Beekeeping Conference & Tradeshow will be held in Hershey, Pennsylvania at the Hershey® Lodge, January 8-12, 2013. As always, this conference promises to bring you the most up-to-date information within the beekeeping industry and the latest products and services offered by our many exhibitors and sponsors.

The 2013 conference will be a very special one because the American Beekeeping Federation will be celebrating its 70th anniversary! The ABF could not think of a better way to celebrate than by hosting another successful conference and tradeshow.

The conference committee is busy developing the agenda and you can be sure it will include presentations from industry experts as well as information from speakers new to the ABF.  Features of the 2013 North American Beekeeping Conference & Tradeshow include:

  • Two and half days of general sessions complete with presentations on the latest developments in beekeeping
  • Large exhibit hall with great vendors featuring outstanding products and services
  • The 2013 American Honey Show
  • The 2013 Honey Queen and Princess coronation
  • The ever-popular Serious Sideliner Symposium with a focus on "How I Do It"
  • The American Bee Research Conference
  • A variety of specialized hands-on workshops
  • Opportunity to visit a working bee farm (or two)
  • A few "sweet" treats
  • And much, much more...

We're excited to be in Hershey, Pennsylvania! Home to some of the bestselling chocolate in the world, Hershey is truly an unforgettable town where the scent of chocolate (and now, maybe even honey!) will follow you wherever you go.
