Dear Apimondia Members, fellow beekeepers, researchers and friends

47th Apimondia International Apicultural Congress


The Executive Board of Apimondia voted unanimously this week to cancel the Apimondia Congress planned for September 2022 in Ufa Russia.  We condemn the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. 

Please know that we heard all your voices during these trying days.

We are looking forward to organising a great Apimondia Congress in Santiago Chile in 2023, when beekeepers and researchers from every nation will once again be able to meet.  We may organise some Symposia prior to the Congress:  please follow our website for updates.

We appreciate your continued support of Apimondia.
