2017 North American Beekeeping Conference & Tradeshow
Galveston Island Convention Center & San Luis Resort Properties
January 10-14, 2017
Pre Registration is now closed but you may register on site at the conference.
Guest Room Reservations Warning: It has been brought to our attention that a Housing Company is contacting potential conference attendees and advising that the conference hotel is almost sold out and that they need to make their reservations with them at that time. This is not accurate! No one should or will be calling you to make your hotel reservations. All reservations must be made directly with the hotel via telephone or online link.
The three host conference hotels are now sold out. We have secured additional guest rooms at the Casa del Mar Beachfront Suites (located approx. 0.4 miles from the Galveston Island Convention Center). Shuttle service to the convention center is not available.

Reservations can be made by calling the hotel at 1-800-392-1205 and requesting the North American Beekeeping Conference room block (or mentioning code 2621).
