Propak Cape to showcase latest technologies in packaging and related industries

Propak Cape 2017

Propak Cape Exhibition

Returning to Cape Town in October, the highly successful Propak Cape trade exhibition will provide local and international companies an opportunity to showcase their products and services to thousands of influential decision makers. It will provide an environment for networking, sourcing of products and suppliers, and for education and learning across packaging and related industries.

Visitors will be able to see the latest advancements in machinery, equipment, products, materials and services offered by the packaging, food processing, plastics, printing and labelling industries. Expert advice from technical specialists will be on hand to find the right solutions for business growth.

Bringing wine and olive oil production and supply into the spotlight will be the newly-launched Wine and Olive Oil Production Expo which will be held alongside Propak Cape.

As a major exporter of fruit, wine, vegetables, flowers and other valuable commodities to international markets, the Western Cape is heavily reliant on the packaging industry in realising the country's export potential and the region's all-important stake in earning valuable foreign exchange. It is essential that fresh produce is properly packaged to ensure its safe and undamaged arrival. 

"Propak Cape will be showcasing the full industry lifecycle from raw materials and processing to packaging, plastics, printing, labelling, logistics, warehousing, recycling and waste management," says Joshua Low, Portfolio Director at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organisers of the show. "The Wine and Olive Oil Production Expo will cover the full supply chain up to the point of packaging including, but not limited to, suppliers of fertilisers, chemicals, vines, and all the machinery used for separation, filtration and ageing of wine."

A series of free-to-attend seminars will add further value to the expo with discussion topics such as sustainability, lightweight packaging options for wine and olive oil, recycling, mechanisation and the use of technology in the wine making process, ingredients, water purification, and many others.

Propak Cape is endorsed by the Italian-South African Chamber of Trade and Industries and the Propak brand has enjoyed wide support from industry associations such as the Institute of Packaging SA, Plastics SA and Printing SA.

The show is organised by Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, a member of the prestigious Montgomery Group, one of the most widely respected exhibition companies in the world with trade shows, consumer shows and specialist projects currently spanning Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Propak Cape 2017 and the Wine and Olive Oil Production Expo will be taking place at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC) from 24-26 October.
