Queensland Beekeepers' Association Inc
Annual State Conferences & Annual General Meetings
Each year the Queensland Beekeepers' Association hosts a State Conference and Annual General Meeting. These events are hosted across Queensland, taking our members to regional locations, major metropolitan centres, and occasionally remote rural locations.
Each year, our QBA branches take turns at hosting this event. This years conference will take place in Warwick, 'The Rose City' located in stunning Southern Downs region of QLD.
Every third year our Management team host the conference choosing a major conference venue to host our annual event. As the COVID-19 global pandemic had forced our hand to cancel our 2020 state conference and AGM, we made a decision to host a major conference in 2021 (which was out of synchronisation of our usual schedule) to bring our beekeeping community together after a difficult year of separation due to the health restrictions. In 2021 the QBA Management team held our annual conference and AGM at the Southport Sharks AFL Football Club. From all accounts, the event was a great success with many members requesting a 'return to the Gold Coast' for future events. From our Management committees perspective, the venue was a ideal location to hold our event, fit for purpose with staff and event managers meeting our every wish. We sincerely thank the team at Southport Sharks and Mantra Sharks for their warm welcome and hospitality.
We managed to snap a few photos from the 2021 event. Feel free to explore the gallery below.
