Butterfly Professionals Conference -
A Celebration of 15 Years
This year our annual conference will be in San Antonio, Texas, November 7-10. In celebration of our 15 year anniversary, IBBA will be going back to its roots. One of the first get togethers of IBBA butterfly breeders was in San Antonio. This year we are going back for the conference and a birthday party.
Hotel info has now been posted, but the hotel is not ready to take reservations this far ahead. Further details will be posted as they become available.
The IBBA recommends purchasing adult butterflies and does not endorse shipping pupae in boxes that must emerge inside the boxes before release as a butterfly. The quality and success of a butterfly release declines when pupae are shipped in boxes, instead of adult butterflies. For the best results, allow a professional butterfly farm to hand raise your livestock and ship it to you fully developed.
For the highest quality butterflies for your event, be sure to rely on an IBBA farm to provide healthy, strong and stunningly beautiful butterflies.
