KITE 2022 around the corner

KITE 2022 around the corner

Industrial trade shows have, like many other industries, been at the mercy of the regulatory government monitors and the ever-changing rules and concerns regarding large gatherings of people. But, after presenting the Restart Expo to public officials and invited guests within the industry in November 2020, Specialised Exhibitions was able to successfully demonstrate that controlled and organised gatherings can indeed be organised in a manner that considers the safety and welfare of all event stakeholders.

“KITE 2022 is the embodiment of all that we stand for at Specialised Exhibitions – a superior industry-driven exhibition that allows our local exhibitors to share the latest trends and best practices in technology and service with a discerning market,” says Gary Corin, managing director of Specialised Exhibitions.

“Visitors will find many of the products and services they have grown to love and respect, as well as a number of new offerings that have leveraged the opportunities that the pandemic has presented for innovative companies to reinvent themselves and think outside the box,” adds Charlene Hefer, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions.

Without compromising on the visitors’ ability to fruitfully interact with the exhibitors, the KITE team has put a number of measures in place to ensure that the exhibition complies with the government’s regulations for safe social exchanges.

Superior industrial technology

The 70 exhibitors at KITE 2022, including platinum sponsor Dromex, represent a wide array of industrial technology products and services, primarily targeting the KwaZulu-Natal manufacturing, engineering, plastics, and chemicals and petrochemicals industries.

  • Components

Industry association support

Hefer explains that the organisers have partnered with a number of leading industry associations that include SAIMechE, LEEASA, Mesa Africa, Saiosh, SACEEC, and SAIMC. “We invite visitors to enjoy the on-stand demonstrations of cutting-edge industrial equipment and to advance their knowledge base by joining our free-to-attend SAIMechE seminar sessions in the Seminar Theatre (these sessions will also be livestreamed),” she says. “Other worthwhile learning sessions at KITE include the free-to-attend MESA special interest group, and the paid-for LEEASA conference.”
