New research from Sage shows that business owners are investing in the future. More than half (54%) of small and medium enterprise (SME) owners in South Africa did not take a holiday last year and 70% put in more time than the standard 40 hour-week to grow their businesses. Of the respondents, 32% said that they expect to hire more than five employees in the next two years, and 10 percent said they’ll hire as many 20 employees in two years.
With this growth in mind, the 2016 Africa Print regional expo's, will feature a host of solutions geared at helping visitors expand their businesses and enter into new revenue streams. Visitors can speak to industry experts about business opportunities in: digital printing presses, binding equipment, wide format digital, digital packaging solutions, screen printing, digital textile printing, finishing equipment, ink, software, pad printing, paper and board, litho print solutions, encapsulating/laminating, digital label printing and more.
In addition to the regional expo’s being held around South Africa, visitors can also look forward to the Africa Print expo being held in Johannesburg from 7-9 September 2016. The expo will be co-located with the Sign Africa, FESPA Africa and Africa LED Expo.
