This will be the 9th International Parrot Convention in Tenerife. Held every 4 years. I have been to 6 (1990, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014) out of the 8 past Parrot Conventions missing number 1 (1986) and 3 (1994) so I have a lot of experience with the way the convention runs as well as knowing a good amount about Tenerife itself (I have been many other times to Tenerife). If you have never been here before please ask any questions about Tenerife or the Parrot Convention.
32 YEARS CELEBRATING THE INTERNATIONAL PARROT CONVENTION
The excitement is beginning to build for the IX. International Parrot Convention which, like all preceding conventions, will be held in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife. In a little more than a year, this unsurpassed event will mark 32 years of the world’s most important conventions about all matters related to parrots, started by Loro Parque in 1986. We expect this next International Parrot Convention again to attract at least 850 participants from over 40 countries around the world, and from all walks of life. Like you, they all share a passion for parrots and are eager to share their latest news and experiences. The technical programme will feature around 20 expert speakers, internationally recognised in their fields of work with these birds, making the Convention a vital forum to up-date our knowledge, and to take action for the conservation of parrot species which need our help. Responding to unprecedented demand, there will be in-depth workshops held on the three days after the Convention, with experts giving very practical advice on the care and breeding of parrots. And no Convention would be complete without the opportunity to see the world’s largest, most diverse collection of parrots. The conference attendees and accompanying persons will have unlimited access to Loro Parque during the Convention, and will be able to experience the new and enhanced attractions made since the 2014 Convention. These include the wonderful new habitat for Red Pandas and the new aviaries for communities of Amazon parrots and parakeets from South and Central America. They will also be able to see Golden Lion Tamarins for the first time in Loro Parque, as well as the renovated habitat for the otters. A new spectacular exhibition of three African lions will also await you. There will also be an optional day excursion to visit the spectacular new aquarium, Poema del Mar, built by Loro Parque in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. As always, the participants will be able to savour the warm welcome, gastronomic pleasures, wonderful climate and spectacular landscapes of Tenerife. The Convention will guarantee a fantastic social programme of ‘wining and dining’, which will culminate in the elegant Gala Dinner held in the luxuriant gardens of the five-star Hotel Botánico. More information and registration details are available in this page. Don´t miss this unforgettable event and ensure your place. We look forward to welcoming you!
