Join us for dynamic speakers, cutting-edge research
and beekeepers from around the globe.
Inspired by our Northern Lights beekeepers, this year's conference celebrates WAS members located in and near Alaska, Yukon, British Columbia, the Canadian prairies, Washington, Idaho, and Montana. Beekeepers from all around the world will explore the strengths and challenges of beekeeping in this region of the Northern Hemisphere, and the unique beekeeping techniques used in lands where dark, rich soil, vast fields of clover, and long summer days result in enormous honey crops.
The Conference Experience
Immersive and Varied
In addition to outstanding educational workshop options, conference attendees can choose from two concurrent streams of presentations over two days led by an assembly of esteemed speakers and panelists. Topics will include management best practices, hive health, queen rearing, urban beekeeping, over-wintering and much more.
Welcoming and Fun
There will be something for everyone, new and seasoned beekeepers alike. Conference attendees will enjoy networking opportunities and casual time to connect with other beekeepers. And everyone will want to visit the vendor floor area to shop a broad selection of beekeeping tools and equipment.
Speakers will range
from scientists and tech transfer specialists to hobbyists and commercial keepers.
