Despite uncertainties relating to Covid, the 2022 Spring Convention at Harper Adams University in Shropshire (8-10 April) proved popluar with full weekend participants, day visitors and traders alike. In addition to photo opportunities at the 'Hive Entrance', highlights included:

The Workshops - participants were particularly eager for the hands-on opportunities they offered!

25 Lectures to choose from, including two virtual talks by lecturers based overseas, all included in the price of full Convention entry, and with no booking required.

The BBKA Stand in the Regional Food Academy, where Trustees and staff were on hand to answer questions and sell special editions of BBKA News. 

Saturdays extensive Commercial Trade Show. 

Information about the BBKA online examination software (Inspera) provided by members of the BBKA Exam Board. 

Excellent Harper Adams catering, particularly at the sociable dinners. These culminated in Saturday's auction, which raised over £1700 toward the National Honey Show's DEC Ukraine Appeal. 

If you missed the 2022 Convention, several of the lectures will be available on the BBKA YouTube Channel shortly - and please note 21-23 April @Harper Adams in your 2023 forward planner.
