With just 10 weeks to go, organisers behind Propak East Africa 2020 have confirmed they expect this year to be a ground-breaking edition. Taking place between 17 – 19 of March 2020 at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre in Nairobi, Kenya, Propak East Africa will open its doors for its fifth edition.
The region’s leading trade event for professionals working across the packaging, plastics, printing and food-processing supply chain, Propak East Africa will return to welcome over 4,500 attendees, more than 200 leading exhibiting brands, daily conferences, skills workshops and brand-new networking capabilities.
Visitors to this year’s event will be able to browse products/ technology from some of the industry’s most prominent brands, the likes of which include; Alphasonics, Armor East Africa, Borghi SPA, Cybernaptics, Filmatic Packaging Systems, GEA East Africa, Ishida Europe, Kensta Group, Krones, Pakona, Bosch, Sarsoli Colours, Starlinger, and many more. Visit the website to see the full list of exhibitors.
This year for the first time, Propak East Africa will incorporate the co-located event, Print East Africa. A dedicated print-focused industry expo, the combined offering between the packaging and print products at this year’s event will attract an even larger audience for cross-over interest. Visitors will find live equipment, products and solutions for graphic, marketing, print-buyer, retail applications and more.
Daily conferences will also be taking place throughout the event, these will be free-to-attend for all visitors and will cover topics from industry insights and growth opportunities, to potential pit-falls, case studies and technological developments.
One of the new developments this year will be the new Propak East Africa Connect app. All registered visitors will be able to pre-organise meetings with every exhibitor, earmark conferences they’d like to attend and create a personal schedule to maximise their time at the event.
“This year we’re expecting a huge turnout, not only because we’ve been away for two years, so there’s hundreds of new market developments, new names and other industry changes to explore but also because we’ve heavily invested in our networking capabilities . As a way to stimulate the market by connecting buyers and suppliers, we’re giving every attendee access to our brand new networking app, which will facilitate pre-organised meetings so that our busy industry professionals can maximise their time and speak to the right people.” Angela Kinyua, Portfolio Director East Africa, Montgomery East Africa, the organisers behind Propak East Africa.
