The full conference line-up...

Only two days to go until the 2019 ABA Conference, and our speakers are arriving in Sydney from all over the world!

Don't miss out...!

We need to confirm numbers with the caterers by tomorrow, so book your tickets now, before it’s too late!

The Conference Program

There’s something for everyone at the ABA Conference!

We have a fabulous line-up of over 20 exciting speakers from Australia and overseas ready to amaze you with their stories of honeybees, native bees, pollination, art, photography, medicine, diseases and more...

View the latest version of the program, or download it here. We are working hard to ensure that speakers and topics are spread across the two days, but don’t forget the program might change without without notice as we squeeze in more speakers.

Tickets are just $120 for general admission, or $100 for ABA/NSWAA/NSBKA members - and you can come for the second day for free!

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are included in the ticket price.

The Gala Dinner @ Hawkesbury Race Club

Hawkesbury Race Club is the place to be on Saturday 8 June!

Not only will there be fabulous food and an open bar, but we will be running the Colonel Pulling Quiz, and presenting awards for the Colonel Pulling inter-club competition, individual ABA awards, and the ABA Bee Shorts film competition.

Introducing our 2019 Conference poster

We are delighted to present our new poster for the 2019 ABA Conference.

Blue Mountains artist, Julie Nettleton, has generously given us permission to use her beautiful artwork Grevillea buxifolia & Honey Bee to promote our conference. You can see more of Julie’s modern botanical art on her website at julienettleton.com.

A limited number of copies of the poster will be available for sale at the conference.
