Complemented by a tabletop exhibition,  DecTec Africa 2010 represents a prime opportunity for networking during conference breaks and the cocktail reception on the evening of the first day, hosted by platinum sponsors Fima Films and UPM.   The conference is also sponsored by Paragon Inks and leading packaging media, including South Africa’s own ‘Packaging and Print Media’ and PACSA.
