Autumn Conference 2019
November 15 - November 17
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 15th – 17th November 2019. 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.
The CABK runs a Bursary Scheme to allow a young (18-25) beekeeper to attend with most costs (except travel) covered by the CABK. For further details, please follow the link.
