16 Oct 20 Packing a virtual punch in October with Propak
The popular Propak Cape expo, supposedly due to be held this month, has had to be postponed to next year, but organisers, Specialised Exhibitions, is hosting a make-good webinar: ‘Opportunities in Packaging in the New Normal’, taking place on Wednesday 21 October.
Propak Cape is recognised as an innovative packaging solutions trade expo for the Western Cape and has successfully showcased the latest products, services and innovations to a captive and receptive audience for over twenty years. It brings together many stakeholders from the packaging, food processing, plastics, printing and labelling industries.

To still put a mark on this year’s October calendar, the organisers of Propak Cape, Specialised Exhibitions, will be hosting a virtual experience webinar ‘One day, one hour, packed with a punch for the packaging industry: Opportunities in Packaging in the ‘New Normal’.
