Beekeeping in the “New Normal”


Date and time: 30th September 2021 14:00-15:30 Bangkok time (ICT)

The APIA would like to invite you all to come learn about the impacts COVID-19 has had on beekeeping and the different bee products on the 30th of September from 2pm Bangkok time (ICT). 

Beekeeping in the ‘New Normal’ will be led by Mr. Tanapong Sampaoloi, an agricultural extension academic who is the Director of the Agriculture Technology Promotion Center (Economic Insects) Chiang Mai Province. 

With more than 26 years of experience working with bees, Mr. Tannapong has a unique and in-depth perspective on the impacts COVID-19 has had on both beekeeping and the production of bee products, as well as the adaptation measures needed in the new normal. 

One of the main objectives of the Center is to test the quality of products from economic insects. This includes testing quality of honey, which Mr. Tannapong is an expert in. With this knowledge, the webinar is a special opportunity to have any queries on the subject matter answered and can’t be missed by beekeepers, honey sellers, or anyone who loves honey alike. 


The webinar is free of charge

The webinar will be in Thai with real time English translations
