ICBES 2019 Earlybird Discount Ending SOON!

Have you registered for the International Conference of Butterfly Exhibitors and Suppliers yet? Have you reserved a room at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando? Although the conference isn’t until November, you will want to reserve your place BEFORE JULY 1 to take advantage of the $50 early-bird registration discount. Space is limited at the hotel and on the post-conference trip, so sign up soon for those as well.

Visit the IABES website to get more details about the meetings, to register for the conference, and to see who else has already registered. We are excited to see many familiar friends coming, and lots of new faces as well. We are confident that this will be the most important conference of the year for anyone involved with butterfly exhibits or the farms that supply pupae to them.

To reserve a room at the Rosen Plaza Hotel, contact the hotel directly at +1-800-627-8258.

The conference will begin that evening at 6:00 pm. Be sure to arrive in time to hear Andrea Schepmann’s inspiring keynote presentation entitled “State-of-the-Art Butterfly Shows in a Historic Greenhouse: 25 Years and Still Flying High!” about the annual butterfly shows at the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati, Ohio. This will be followed by an ice-breaker at the hotel.
