44-ti Apimondija kongres – Daejeon Južna Koreja
Septembar 15-20 2015.g
I am Kyoonhwan CHO, president of the Local Organizing Committee of 44th APIMONDIA International Apicultural Congress 2015 to be held in Daejeon, South Korea. Apiculture or beekeeping has continued to evolve and mature together with human history. We have witnessed the transition from an old beekeeping & honey hunting, merely focused on pursuing economic interests, to a modern one which has diversified in to different areas to offer a wider range of honey hunting and related products. Furthermore, we cannot over emphasize the importance of honey bees in fields of ecology and global food security.
During the 44th APIMONDIA International Apicultural Congress in Daejeon, which will take place from September 15~20, 2015, under the theme “Bee, Connecting the World!”, many participants from the beekeeping industry, universities, businesses, and R&D sector around the world will come together to discuss ways to promote cooperation and collaboration.
The APIMONDIA 2015 has a lot to offer: 7 thematic academic symposiums, poster sessions, exhibitions displaying global beekeeping related products as well as the chance to discover rich and beautiful culture of Korea. Daejeon where traditions and modern science co-exist, you will experience many advanced, cutting-edge beekeeping technologies as well as diverse beekeeping industries of other countries around the world. It will be a true celebration “connecting the world” through “bees.” Moreover, the Congress is held for the third time in Asia after Japan and China, and it is all the more meaningful as it falls on the 150th anniversary of APIMONDIA. We hope that the Congress will serve as a platform for participants to share deep affection for one another and communicate for networking.
Truly convinced that the APIMONDIA 2015 will help connect different actors from the academia, industry and R&D, we will spare no effort to successfully host this event. We look forward to seeing you next year in Daejeon, Korea, the land of the beautiful morning.
The president of Local Organizing Committee
