ACCESS TO THE EXHIBITION HALL IS FREE FOR VISITORS

 

At a time when French and European beekeepers are suffering, for some, from significant mortalities and catastrophic harvests due to difficult climatic conditions in many regions, this event is a unique place, for beekeepers and scientists alike, to share the latest innovations and the most recent research in an attempt to respond to the major concerns and issues facing beekeeping today.

Many conferences will thus be led by world-renowned researchers. 6,000 to 8,000 visitors and delegates are expected during these 4 days. The exhibition space is free and accessible to the public.

After the 1st edition in Agen in 2012, then the editions in Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Austria and Romania, the Beecome European Beekeeping Congress returns to Quimper from October 20 to 23, 2022

It is once again organized by the UNAF, and for Quimper 2022 in collaboration with the Syndicat de l'Abeille Finistérienne.

 YOU CAN NOW PRE-RESERVE YOUR STANDS.

THEME OF THE CONGRESS: “SAFEGUARDING BEES AND BEEKEEPING: A REAL CHALLENGE FOR THE FUTURE”

All the issues related to the survival of the bee and the development of beekeeping will be discussed during these days:

  • Bee health (varroa destructor, aethina tumida, Asian hornet, etc.)
  • The quality of the bee environment (phytosanitary, honey resources)
  • The beekeeping economy (honey market, valuation, labelling)
  • Apitherapy (bee products and human health)
  • Beekeeping in Europe
  • The latest scientific discoveries

The congress will also be the meeting place for exhibitors representing all the partners in the beekeeping sector: apiary, honey and transhumance equipment, packaging, trading, cosmetics, advice, analysis laboratories, etc. On more than 2,500 m² of exhibition space, a hundred of them will be expected in a space dedicated to exchanges and demonstrations of specialized equipment and innovations.

This event will be a great opportunity for the general public to discover the beekeeping industry and its various professions. Many festive and educational events will thus be offered throughout the congress, in particular for young audiences: fun activities and exhibitions, local market, honey and bee products market, conferences, photo competitions, innovation, hornet, and also an international mead competition.

 
Quimper, the capital of Cornouaille, 15 km from the sea, rich in its terroir, will also offer beautiful excursions and tourist visits, Locronan, Concarneau, La Pointe du Raz, Pont-Aven...
