10 Feb 22 Yes! Propak Africa 2022 is happening – soon!
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. Free-to-attend seminars will be taking place across the four days, as well as two conferences: the Institute of Packaging SA’s ‘Think Tank’ conference on March 8 & 9 and Printing SA conference on March 10. Conference pre-booking is required.
There will also be an ‘every day a themed day’ experience with the focus on new products, sustainability, occupational health and safety, and on day four, the last day of the show, a ‘Local is Lekker’ theme.
“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.
