14th ASIAN APICULTURAL
October 22nd – 25th, 2018
"Bees, Environment and Sustainability"
Asian Apicultural Association (AAA) has been hosting the Conference on Bees and Beekeeping in Asian countries since 1992, once in every two years. Each conference provided a forum for the people who are interested in bee science and beekeeping to share and exchange the latest technology on various aspects related to the bees and beekeeping.
As a two-yearly event, the year of 2018 will be the 14th of AAA conference. Based on the meeting on the 13th AAA Conference in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the committee decided to elect INDONESIA as the host country of the 14th Asian Apicultural Association (AAA) and will be held on October 22 - 25, 2018 in Jakarta at Merlynn Park Hotel (we moved from Makassar, due to technical aspects).
This conference is organized under AAA and sub-organized by Indonesian Apicultural Association (Asosiasi Perlebahan Indonesia), supported by Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) of Indonesia.

The theme of the 14th AAA Conference is "Bees, environment and Sustainability". We consider this theme is crucially important since beekeeping has been challenged with environment and sustainability issues, addressing the bee population and impact to the environment.
We hope a board spectrum of the participants will attend this highly valuable conference; such as scientists, beekeepers, food and herb processors, marketers, beekeeping industry operators, hobbies, NGOs, Government Agencies, and students.
