Announcing ABRC and the national bee meetings for 2020

The 2020 American Bee Research Conference (the annual conference of the AAPA) will be held in conjunction with the American Beekeeping Federation (ABF) Annual Conference and Tradeshow (January 8-11, 2020)

at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel (1551 N. Thoreau Drive Schaumburg, Illinois).

2020 ABRC will be two full days January 9-10 following the Thursday-Friday schedule.

For Lodging: ABF has discounted rooms at $119.00 per night and this rate will be available until Monday Dec 16 or until all rooms are full (For more hotel information:  

As usual, we want to make the location of our meeting clear and that the ABRC meeting is with American Beekeeping Federation this year not the American Honey Producers. And just like every year, some people will have to attend both beekeeper meetings which makes for a fun travel week! Everyone is welcome to have all the fun and attend and speak at both meetings, but obviously we want to see you at ABRC.

2020 ABRC dates: January 9 (Th) through January 10 (Fr)

Poster and Presentation Proposals (Title, Authors, Abstract) due by: October 21st

Registration deadline: December 1st

The AAPA website will be updated with more ABRC information as we work out the logistics.

NC1173 members only: the annual NC1173 business meeting will be held either Thursday or Friday evening. I’m still working on this but should have the date confirmed shortly. cked0
