CATCH THE BUZZ – An Invitation from the Team in Montreal for Apimondia 2019

Dear Apimondia Community,

The Canadian Honey Council and its industry partners are proud to invite you to join the 46th Apimondia Congress, which will be held in Montréal, Canada from September 8-12, 2019. Apimondia 2019 Montréal proposes a theme outlining the importance of bees for our society:

“Working together within agriculture, Canada’s answer to sustainable beekeeping”

Montréal is internationally renowned for its hospitality, great attractions and centrally located modern congress facilities with easy access to the Montréal Trudeau International Airport. The Canadian Honey Council has a team that is working with the City of Montréal and the Palais des congrès de Montréal Convention Center to organize this grandiose event.

The Congress will cover a broad spectrum of beekeeping and apicultural sciences, including state of-the-art lectures, plenary sessions and various symposia within each of the Apimondia Standing Commissions. The Montréal Congress will strive to be a showcase of world-wide advancements in the science of apiculture. Emphasis will also be placed on presentations or discussions of topics that are of high prominence in the beekeeping community or that challenge our concepts of modern beekeeping, through roundtables and special interest group  sessions. The poster sessions, offering lively interaction between presenters and participants, are regarded by many as the heart of the Congress. We will also endeavour to use web-based streaming of all plenary sessions to allow participation of a new category of virtual registrants in aspects of the Congress.

When you visit Montréal, you step into an exquisite blend of the world’s cultures. The city brings together many parts of the world and cultural communities to live together in harmony. Some 100 languages are spoken in Montréal. French is the official language, but you can be served in English wherever you go. Montréal has something for everyone, with an incredible array of festivals, a lively entertainment district and choices of cuisine to satisfy even the most ardent foodies. Day or night, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do in Montréal.

Montréal has an international reputation for being a safe city. It is among the top cities in the world to live in based on criteria such as safety, quality of life and cost of living. You have nothing to fear as you move around and go about your business, whether day or night.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Montréal in 2019!
