The Southern African Vinyls Association (SAVA) is proud to announce its inaugural “Innovation in PVC” conference, to be held on 30 August 2023 in the auditorium at Sasol Place in Sandton, Johannesburg. The one-day event will bring together approximately 200 delegates from across the vinyls industry in Southern Africa, including raw material and additive suppliers, manufacturers of vinyl products, importers and recyclers.

“We are thrilled to be hosting this ground-breaking event for the local vinyls industry,” said Monique Holtzhausen, chief executive officer of SAVA. “This conference will provide a platform for local innovators to showcase their products and services, as well as an opportunity for delegates to network with other industry professionals. We are hoping to make this an annual event that will grow both in size and impact.”

Showcasing innovation

The conference will showcase the latest innovations and developments in the industry, with a call for papers going out to all role-players. Speakers will have the opportunity to deliver a 30-minute presentation on any new product innovation or development that is impacting and benefitting the local vinyl industry. A dedicated exhibition space where companies can display their products and services for conference delegates is also included. “This symposium is a unique opportunity for anyone interested in the vinyls industry to learn about the latest innovations and network with their peers,” said Holtzhausen. “We encourage anyone with an interest in the industry to attend and submit a proposal to present their innovation.”
