October’s Propak Cape to showcase latest products and innovation

Showcasing the latest products from the packaging, food processing, plastics, printing and labelling industries, Propak Cape looks set to be bigger and better than ever, and promises to give visitors a chance to view the best and latest technology, products and services from these innovative sectors.

With its successful track record over the past decade as a highly influential packaging and related industries exhibition, the show enjoys strong industry support and this year is on track to be the biggest in Cape Town yet with over 200 exhibitors participating.

“An extremely successful regional event, the show combines all elements of packaging and its related industries, and provides a powerful marketing vehicle for the broad industry it represents,” says Gary Corin, MD of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organisers of the show.

“Visitors will benefit from seeing the many interactive displays as well as the on-site demonstrations of machinery and equipment. They will also have the opportunity to interact with top industry experts and gain invaluable industry insights.

“Propak Cape is further supported by a full programme of conferences running alongside the exhibition, focusing on topical issues that will be of benefit to those involved in these industry sectors.”

The Western Cape is the perfect home for Propak Cape. As a major exporter of wine, fruit and other valuable commodities to international markets, the area is heavily reliant on the packaging and associated industries. It is essential that fresh produce is properly packaged to ensure its safe and undamaged arrival at its destination, but although the basic function of packaging is to preserve and protect the pack contents, packaging – particularly in the retail market – continues to be a fascinating marketing tool that is used to promote and sell products.

“Advertising agencies, packaging designers, brand and product managers are encouraged to visit Propak Cape 2014,” says Corin, “to see the latest in packaging technology, materials and processes.”

Visitors can expect to see a wide range of the latest products, equipment, machinery and services from leading local and international manufacturers and suppliers.

Taking place at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC) from 21-23 October 2014, Propak Cape is a must for all involved in packaging, food processing, plastics, printing and labelling.
