The Vinyl SA 2017 Conference is set to take place on Wednesday, 7 June 2017 at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg. This year’s event will build on the success of the Association’s first Vinyl SA 2014 Conference that took place on the back of the Global Vinyls Council’s (GVC) first bi-annual meeting hosted on the African continent.

Some of the local and international PVC experts who will be presenting at the event include Peter Willis, Senior Associate, University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL); Ian Lilja of the Vinyl Council of Australia (VCA), who will be delivering an update on the VCA Product Stewardship Programme and Dr Brigitte Dero, General Manager of the European Council for Vinyl Manufacturers and VinylsPlus, who will be providing an expert overview of the European Regulatory and Policy Context.

A highlight of the conference will be the awards session where SAVA will recognise the achievements and contributions made by individuals and SAVA member companies within the PVC industry. A call for nominations will be issued soon and the final programme for the event is released in April.
