45th Apimondia International Apicultural Congress 2017


29 September - 4 October Istanbul

For all information about this forthcoming Congress please visit the Congress website

Important message from the organisers.

Terrorism is global, unfortunately nowhere in the world is completely safe. In Istanbul authorities have every possible security measure in place. There is a great professionalism in the Events sector in Istanbul: we constantly adapt and get the best out of situations. The area where we are going to organize Apimondia, named Congress Valley, is the most secure place in Istanbul.


We have organized the World Humanitarian Summit, The 40th UNESCO Congress, and the World Energy Congress in the last few months in Istanbul Congress Center which is where we are going to organize the Apimondia Congress. Many Presidents, Government Ministers and celebrities has participated in these events. Beside these, Istanbul has won the right to organize the Euroleague Basketball Final Four in May 2017, and we’ll organize the European National Basketball Championship just before Apimondia 2017.


Life goes on in Istanbul, as residents in Istanbul we are out for shopping, eating, entertainment, night life etc. We believe that Istanbul is still ideally placed and we continue to enjoy this situation.


Now, we have a great interest in the Congress, nearly all the Api-Expo booths are already reserved. We are planning the most well-attended Congress of Apimondia’s history.
