Dear Colleagues,

During the congress, all shareholders of the sector on the international level, providing theoretical information to our beekeepers, and increasing their experience in the related fields is aimed. In line with this purpose, guests will be encouraged to stay overnight as in our previous congress, and a camp atmosphere that is open to discussion and share of ideas on the technical and economic problems of beekeeping in Turkey and the World with the participation of national and international delegation, who are experts in their fields, and beekeepers.

In addition to invited speakers, abstract submissions made for the scientific topics decided by the Scientific Committee will be evaluated carefully and accepted verbally and/or as poster for the “7th International Muğla Beekeeping and Pine Honey Congress”.
Beekeepers will have opportunity to share their field experience. Applications sent to scientific committee will be evaluated and 4 of them will be included in the scientific program.

A honey contest will be held in which evaluation will be made according to international criteria by a jury consisting of an international jury president and national and international members.

There will be indoor and outdoor exhibition areas which national and international companies that are active in the beekeeping sector may open stands to present their products and studies. It is one of the most important responsibilities of the congress organizing committee to become a bridge for starting long-term commercial activities between regional business owners and executives of the international companies who want to create a business connection, whether they have a stand or not.

In each new congress, a very successful increasing trend is achieved in terms of number of participants, number of stands, number of countries, number of international delegates, and number of domestic and international abstracts. Thus, “International Muğla Beekeeping and Pine Honey Congress” takes firm steps forward for becoming a world-class brand congress by making a difference between other beekeeping congresses in the world.
