Webinar explores opportunities in packaging in the new normal

Specialised Exhibitions collaborates with New Media on a highly successful Propak Cape packaging industry webinar.

Having been postponed from October 2020 to June 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Propak Cape will celebrate its 21st anniversary next year. Although disappointed that the 2020 Propak Cape exhibition had to be rescheduled, Specialised Exhibitions – in collaboration with its media partner, New Media – hosted a webinar on 21 October to celebrate all things packaging in the week that the 2020 Propak Cape expo would have taken place.

Approximately 300 guests attended the webinar entitled Opportunities in Packaging in the New Normal. If you missed the webinar, please click on the video link below to view the content on demand.
