Beekeeping conference aims to protect honey bees
Beekeepers from across the country and from a variety of disciplines gathered recently in Los Angeles for an unforgettable weekend learning the latest urban beekeeping findings and techniques. The Natural Beekeeping Conference at USC was hosted by the HoneyLove Organization, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit.
HoneyLove is dedicated to protecting the honey bees by educating and inspiring new urban beekeepers. As part of our continued effort to give back to organizations that help their communities, Avery WePrint was honored to supply the conference with branded materials for attendees.
The Natural Beekeeping Conference featured a who’s who of leading beekeeping experts, educators, researchers, scientists and specialists. There were more than 20 speakers in all. Along with the speakers, the conference held workshops led by prominent beekeeping experts.
Attendees were treated to branded round labels and custom name badges, which soon became popular trading items. The custom stickers were quickly applied to water bottles, laptops, notebooks and everything in-between.
