SIYABONGA DAYS

Agri-Expo has been synonymous with knowledge transfer in agriculture since its inception in 1831. More recently, information days were one of the most successful platforms during the award-winning Agri-Expo Livestock, which has been held annually at Sandringham outside Stellenbosch since 2014.

Over the past two years, however, these information days have undergone a revolution and are now known as SIYABONGA days. What makes it even more special is that these events now take place in different agricultural regions and are broadcast live so that farmers from all over can participate.

SAUVIGNON BLANC SA

Agri-Expo has been managing the cultivar organisation, Sauvignon Blanc South Africa, since 2019 and is responsible for day-to-day operations in collaboration with the management committee of Sauvignon Blanc SA. Agri-Expo’s service to Sauvignon Blanc SA is an example of the expertise embedded in Agri-Expo – namely event management, administration, public relations and communication.
