Thank you for joining us for our 2019 Open Day. It was a very rewarding event for us and we hope that all of you found it as useful and enjoyable as we did.


2019 open day


The team at CVN and all our clients that attended the Open Day greatly appreciated it that so many notable industry experts made the effort to join us. Many thanks to these, in particular to Peter Dall, Buks Nel, Anton Muller, Wiehann Steyn, Nelius Kapp, Daan Brink and the team from SAPO. We were also very pleased that Rijk Danckwerts and Marcus Rosochacki from Ruva Labs joined us, it was interesting for everyone to learn more about tissue culture and to see samples of plants. Finally, a big thank you to Andy Selfe, who bought us lots of delicious apples and took photos during the day.
