KwaZulu-Natal Industrial Technology Exhibition (KITE) forms an important link in the industrial technology chain. Providing its 110 exhibitors with a platform to showcase their products and services to the industry, KITE continues to form an integral part of any industrial technology company’s promotional strategy. No other locally based exhibition has the ability to attract a targeted audience that is focused on sourcing and buying the products and services on offer at KITE. The 2017 event is being held once again at the Durban Exhibition Centre, from 26 to 28 July 2017 and is set expand on its previous successes. KITE is unsurpassed in the sheer number of industrial technological developments it covers. These include displays and information on construction equipment and material; electronic components, energy solutions; environmental solutions; heavy machinery; hygiene products and services; industrial equipment and components; IT and telecommunications manufacturing equipment; materials handling; monitoring, process control and sensors; security equipment; workwear and protective equipment; plant and facility equipment; safety equipment and machinery; tools; and industrial services. In addition to such an extensive range of the province’s leading products and services, KITE also provides visitors with the opportunity to increase their knowledge base. The SAIMechE Seminar Theatre, which has proved so popular in previous years, will once again boast top-notch speakers, discussing new trends and legislation. In addition, LEEASA (Lifting Equipment Association of South Africa) will for the first time host a conference at KITE. Another new feature for KITE 2017 is the inclusion of a Propak Africa Pavilion. This premier tri-annual exhibition is Africa’s largest showcase of packaging, food processing and labelling technology and services which clearly complements the exhibitor offerings at KIT.
