Visitors Flock To Western Cape’s Biggest Printing Expo


The successful Africa Print Cape Town expo, held from 5-6 June at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, attracted over 1100 industry professionals from all over the Western Cape, including Villiersdorp, Mossel Bay, Riversdale, Grabouw, Worcester, Wellington and Darling to name a few.

Africa Print spoke to a few visitors and their feedback was that the expo showcased diversity of products available to the industry. Many also enjoyed the special offers that were available at the expo too. Visitors were inspired by the latest technologies and trends in digital printing, binding equipment, digital packaging solutions, screen printing, digital textile printing, finishing equipment, ink, software and pad printing.
