This year the Queensland Beekeepers' Association reaches another important milestone in our 138 year history as the organisation gathers on mass with our beekeepers, researches and industry supplies to mark our 120th Annual General Meeting. 

In 2024, the QBA recognise after more than 200 years of Australian Beekeeping the industry is collectively turning the page on the next chapter of our story. The QBA is of the position our next chapter should be titled 'Sustainable Beekeeping Beyond Varroa'. 

Our 2024 conference ‘Sustainable beekeeping beyond varroa’ will address four strategic areas of focus:

  • The Future of Australian Beekeeping: Adapting to a changing pest & disease landscape
  • Beyond our Borders: Protection, Preservation and Prosperity for Australian Beekeepers
  • The Business of Beekeeping: Unlocking profit in your beekeeping operation
  • Resilience Redefined: Impacts of extreme weather events and the apiculture industry

We choose to focus our attention on our collective future, protecting and preserving beekeeping in Australia for the next generation of recreational and commercial beekeepers. 

Mid-March we will officially launch our conference program, list of international & domestic speakers together with a number of extension events that run between Wednesday 10th July and Sunday 14th July 2024. 

The fusion of the AHBIC AGM, QBA Welcome Networking Night, QBA Conference, Annual Dinner and the Buzz-tastic community festival, will see Townsville buzzing with activity as our delegates forage about, enriching their knowledge for beekeeping as we embark on our collective journey to Sustainable Beekeeping Beyond Varroa. 

We encourage you to reserve your ticket early and complete early ticket payment in April 2024 to secure your seat.
