After two years of being curtailed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the exhibitions industry is successfully re-opening globally and Africa’s most progressive packaging, food processing, plastics, printing, and labelling trade exhibition, Propak Africa, will be taking place from 8-11 March, at the Expo Centre, Nasrec in Johannesburg.
Recognised for its ability to link together people and products, build quality business connections and facilitate sales, Propak Africa together with co-located shows FoodPro Expo, Pro-Plas Expo, The GAPP Print Expo and Pro-Label Africa will provide a platform for over 200 exhibitors to showcase cutting-edge innovations, technologies, products, machinery, systems, and services. The show is supported by The Institute of Packaging SA, Packaging SA, Printing SA, and Plastics SA.
“We are excited that Propak Africa will be taking place as a live event this year,” says Mark Anderson, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions, a division of Montgomery Group. “The face-to-face interaction that is at the heart of exhibitions has been missed and although online events and virtual exhibitions filled the void and created an environment where buyers and sellers could engage remotely, these fell short of the in-person, face-to-face experience.”
Many exhibitors will have live demonstrations of machinery and equipment on their stands. There will be content-rich free-to-attend seminars which will host industry experts sharing their knowledge and highlighting latest industry trends across the various industry sectors. Two conferences are also taking place: The Institute of Packaging SA’s ‘Think Tank’ two-day conference, and the one-day Printing SA conference.
“We have been working hard behind the scenes connecting with our partners, integrating latest exhibition trends and technologies, and planning our educational conferences, free seminars, theme days, experiential activities and additional new features. We are looking forward to the show,” Anderson concludes.
All Covid-19 regulations will be in place at Propak Africa.
