The KZN Industrial Technology Exhibition (KITE) will take place at the Durban Exhibition Centre from 9 to 12 June 2015. Visitors will be able to analyse and compare various industrial technologies under one roof.

The theme for this year is “Innovation through technology” which will see exhibitors showcasing technological examples including robotics, chemical and plastic technologies, electrical and electronic technologies, engineering supplies, information and communication technologies, logistics and supply chain management, mechanical and materials handling technologies, automation and electronics, safety, health and environmental technologies.

The free 45-minute talks will be held throughout the exhibition and are open to all attendees with no advance booking necessary. The SAIMechE Seminar Theatre series is intended to inspire and motivate guests while encouraging discussion on topical industrial issues.

Speakers at this year’s event will include representatives from government, CEOs, managers and engineers for top industrial corporations. This year’s programme will start with an update from the Department of Labour on occupational health and safety, highlighting its role in assisting industry leaders with employment creation, labour relations and eliminating inequality and discrimination in the workplace. This will be followed by a talk by the KZN Sustainable Energy Forum on developing the sustainable energy sector in the province.

Other items on the seminar agenda include “Trade and Investment Opportunities in KZN”; “A Sustainable Road to Power Efficiency”; “The Effects of Loadshedding on the South African Manufacturing Sector”; and “Bridging Industry and Education – Building Productivity”.

All of the information about this year’s KITE is available via a mobile app which gives visitors access to lists of products and services scheduled for the event with breaking news alerts.
