Propak Cape 2014 workshops and conferences

Industry workshops and conferences at Propak Cape 2014


Propak CapeVisitors to exhibitions have multiple shopping and learning objectives and research has confirmed that top reasons for visitors attending an exhibition include being able to see product demonstrations, to have hands-on interaction with products, to gain insights on industry trends and obtain updated knowledge.

Propak Cape 2014 will offer visitors just that: interactive product displays, daily live demonstrations, industry experts on stands and the additional attraction of industry workshops and conferences alongside the show offering valuable content and networking opportunities.

Plastics SA will be hosting a conference at Propak Cape as will the Institute of Packaging of South Africa (IPSA).

“Bringing additional content to our shows is a way of adding value to the visitor experience,” says Gary Corin, Managing Director, Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery. “Visitors will benefit from seeing the many interactive displays as well as the onsite demonstrations of machinery and equipment. The shows also create a platform for industry networking and provide visitors with the opportunity to interact with top industry experts and gain invaluable industry insights. Adding conferences and workshops to the mix brings even more value for our visitors.”

The Student Gold Pack Awards will also be a feature at Propak Cape this year. This is a reward programme for students in packaging, design and food sciences who show an insight into the challenges of packaging and the interaction of the multiplicity of disciplines involved.

“The student national award winners’ entries will be on display at Propak Cape,” says Corin, adding that as a company they are proud to be associated with this event again this year, as they have been in the past over many years. Propak Cape, FoodPro, Pro-Plas Expo, Print Expo and Pro-Label Cape take place at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC) from 21-23 October.

Propak Cape has the support of The Institute of Packaging in SA, Printing SA and Plastics SA. For greater reach into Africa and overseas, Propak Cape also enjoys the support of Chambers of Commerce and Trade Consuls throughout Africa.
