Latest products, technology and innovation on show at Propak Africa

A must for all contenders in the packaging and related industries, the full-spectrum packaging trade expo will be showcasing the very best that these industries offer. 

Recognised for its ability to link together people and products, build quality business connections and facilitate sales, Africa’s most progressive packaging, printing, plastics, food processing and labelling trade expo, Propak Africa will be taking place from 8-11 March, at the Expo Centre, Nasrec in Johannesburg. 

Propak Africa, together with co-located shows The GAPP Print Expo, Pro-Plas Expo, FoodPro Expo and Pro-Label Expo, will provide a platform for over 200 exhibitors to showcase cutting-edge innovations, technologies, machinery, products, consumables, 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 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. Day one will focus on new products and day two will highlight sustainability. Day three places attention on the occupational health and safety of the industry, and on the last day the theme is ‘local is lekker’ South African day.  

“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 and experiential activities. We are looking forward to the show,” Anderson concludes.

All Covid-19 regulations will be in place at Propak Africa.
