The 2019 Apiculture Conference Website is now live. Click HERE  to visit this year’s site.


Apiculture New Zealand extends to you a warm and friendly invitation to join us at our National Conference 2018 in Blenheim. This year promises variety with knowledgeable  speakers. There will also be seminars, interactive workshops and an outstanding tradeshow exhibition, the largest ever assembled.

Conference 2018 will create the opportunity for you to learn, build on your knowledge and understand what makes this exciting industry tick. Your attendance will send a clear message of support to the many sponsors and trade exhibitors who contribute to this conference and to the wider industry each year.

The programme covers a full three days and is suitable for all beekeepers, non-commercial and commercial, packers, exporters and the wider supplier network.

Attendance packages range from one day to three days, plus the Apiculture New Zealand AGM; thus providing options for those who are unable to attend the full programme.


There will be plenty of opportunity to share stories, enjoy camaraderie and friendship with fellow delegates and attendees from the national and international apiculture community.

Please be aware that New Zealand has extremely strict biosecurity rules around beekeeping and apiculture.  International Delegates must not bring in to the country any used beekeeping equipment, used beekeeping clothing or bee products of any description (honey, wax, pollen, etc) because of the risks they pose to the apiculture industry.

We look forward to seeing you in Blenheim!

Terms and Conditions – No solicitation of memberships outside of approved ApiNZ.
