Beekeepers from across the state came to the Hickory Metro Convention Center last week for the N.C. State Beekeepers Association Summer Conference.
The three-day event, which ended on Saturday, included workshops, demonstrations and vendors selling various bee-related products.
Mandy Hildebrand, CEO of the convention center, said the event brought in more than 500 people and as many as 100 vendors to town.
