'As the world around us rapidly changes both in terms of government restrictions on meetings, events etc and new technology that gives us an increasing range of options in which to communicate, it quickly became apparent that knowing what beekeeping events were going on, when and where was an increasing challenge. Each organisation strives to communicate events via printed magazines, e-newsletters to past/existing customers, via website listing and email cascades. In an attempt to signpost everybody to every event, www.beekeeping.events was formed in September 2018. Contributors can register and freely log their events. In today’s environment of webinars and online broadcasting, the beekeeping audience is no longer restricted to the local beekeeping group or county, members of an Association or even any single country any more.'
