Welcome

 

The Bee Industry Council of Western Australia (BICWA) have joined together with the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Honey Bee Products to bring you the Australasian Honey Bee 2021 Conference – ‘Better bees, better business’.

 

To cater to all beekeepers and researchers across our region, the conference will address both beekeeper challenges as well as the latest scientific discoveries for Australasia to sustain better bees, and that makes for better business. To keep the interactive nature of the conference, and to be inclusive of all beekeepers and researchers worldwide, the conference will be held in person and streamed online.

 

Interest in beekeeping in this region has driven the doubling of managed honey bees in the world, and this intensive focus has identified many new bioactive honey bee products breaking historic price records. Sustaining flora for honey bees, because of their important role in our region’s food security, is more vital than ever with the changing landscape, and protecting our product quality from hive to the customer grows in importance as we understand their rarity.

 

Honey bee research has expanded with countless scientists offering their skills from all over Australasia to support this fast-growing industry. The conference is to bring everyone with an interest in honey bees together for an intense two days of listening, learning and exchange of ideas to be held at The University of Western Australia.

 

We believe this will be the biggest showcase of honey bee research in Australasia and welcome you to share your innovation and support the next generation of discovery for this industry.
