2025 ABF Conference

2025 Conference and Tradeshow

The American Beekeeping Federation 2025 Conference and Tradeshow will be held at the Peppermill Resort Spa in Reno, Nevada on January 8 – 11.

2024 conference was an overwhelming success with great feedback on our three-track schedule.  So we’ll be continuing this again in 2025.  This allowed for more topics targeted to each level of beekeeping and beekeepers could hear about topics that may entice them to advance to the next level.

2025 will see our 4 day schedule back as 3 days just didn’t seem to be enough time for all the events. 

Our Keynote Speakers have accepted our invitation and we’re delighted to have; Dr.  Marla Spivak from the University of Minnesota, Dr. Geoff Williams from Auburn University and Dr. Scott McArt from Cornell University. 

This year as a special bonus, Project Apis m. will be presenting Thursday morning followed by a luncheon.  Lunch will be a ticketed event.  In addition, Apiary Inspectors of America and ABRC will again join us.

You may direct conference questions to Dan Winter/Debbie Seib at abfnet.org@gmail.com

We’ll be posting our schedule soon.
