Since its inception IAATE has facilitated the exchange of information through a 4-day conference held annually in February. The conference has grown to be one of the most important structured gatherings available to animal trainers with a special interest in avian species.
The IAATE International Conference provides a unique gathering place for animal trainers who already specialize in bird training or who would like to expand their knowledge and horizons by meeting with like-minded trainers from around the world. Through structured paper sessions, informal workshops, and social events the conference provides an ideal information exchange opportunity.
Exposure to the ideas and methods of this experienced international group will inspire even higher standards and training for the birds in your programs. Workshops and roundtable sessions give access to the leaders in the bird training community.
Interested in participating by presenting a poster or paper at the Annual International Conference? The guidelines for paper and poster submissions may be downloaded from here.
Each year at the annual conference IAATE presents a series of awards recognizing significant achievements by its members in several fields. Members may also apply for grant funding for conservation projects with the grant awards being made at the conference. Please visit the Awards and Grants page for information, application forms, and recognition of those receiving awards.
The winners of the Annual Photo Contest are also announced at the conference. Be sure to get your entries in early, see this link for deadlines!
