The world beekeeping congress Apimondia2017, which will be held for the 45th time and organized by Teamcon, owned by the Central Union of Beekeepers of Turkey, will be held in Istanbul between 29 September and 4 October. TAB (Turkish Beekeepers’ Center Association) and ARMASAD (Bee Materials and Bee Products Industrialists’ Association) management, which came together at the consultation meeting held on the planning of the congress, exchanged ideas for this important organization that will bring together the beekeepers of Turkey and the World. TAB President Ziya Şahin stated that all stakeholders in the sector should act together for Turkey. Beekeepers will experience many firsts in the congress. In addition to the presentations of academicians from all over the world on beekeeping, we will tell the world about our beekeeping with the presentations of beekeepers themselves on beekeeping in Turkey. All beekeepers and industry stakeholders are invited to the congress, where intense participation from the world and Turkey is expected.
