TBA Annual Vendor Trade Show
On behalf of the Texas Beekeepers Association (TBA), we are excited to invite you to connect with the largest audience of beekeepers in one of the busiest beekeeping areas in the state. Today, there are many challenges facing the industry that are endangering the very existence of nature’s most valuable insect. From disease to shrinking habitat to detrimental legislation, Texas beekeepers rely on the TBA for the education they need to succeed in the business of keeping bees.
The Annual Convention is the TBAs major event running over 3 days. It promises to provide the most up to date information concerning TBA activities benefiting the Texas Beekeeping industry, and provides updates on the beekeeping industry. It also is a fantastic opportunity to network with hundreds of beekeepers eager to learn about the latest beekeeping technologies and innovations. Participants attend educational sessions and demonstrations on topics such as pollinator health, resistance to Varroa mites, sustainability in beekeeping and expanding beekeeping operations. For many attendees, the Convention serves as their primary opportunity to stay informed about the hottest products and services offered by our exhibitors and sponsors.
As a special bonus this year, the American Beekeeping Federation (ABF) will hold their state meeting in Temple on Saturday, November 4th. ABF attendees will have access to the vendor areas only.
