Autumn Conference 2018
16th November 2018 - 18th November 2018
The CABK Autumn Conference will be held at the Woodside Hotel in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, a very comfortable hotel specialising in meetings and conferences, from Friday afternoon until Sunday lunchtime 16th – 18th November 2018. There will be 7 lectures at a relaxed pace over the 3 days with plenty of time to network with other beekeepers and with the researchers.
New for 2018 is a Bursary Scheme to allow a young (18-25) beekeeper to attend with most costs (except travel) covered by the CABK.
The schedule runs as follows. For prices see the table at the bottom of this page.
Profiles of the speakers can be found here.
