With just over a week to go before the opening of the RPMASA’s second biennial Conference and Exhibition on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and the Environment on 07 March at the ICC in Durban, the Association are calling on interested parties that have not yet registered to attend and/or to exhibit at the event to do so soon to avoid disappointment.

Liz Anderson, President of the RPMASA has indicated, “During the conference we aim to provide delegates with access to international and local experts to share messages of critical importance to those in the packaging and supply chain of chemicals and consumer dangerous goods industries in South Africa as well as globally. This conference is an opportune time for delegates to increase their knowledge of domestic and international regulations, thus avoiding costly mistakes and fines, and saving money. There will also be several opportunities at breaks and while relaxing at the Conference dinner at uShaka Marine World for delegates to learn, explore and exchange ideas while networking with industry leaders, regulators and other hazmat professionals”.

Delegates will also have access to exhibits of the latest technology and regulatory compliance publications, products, and services.

Media interview opportunities in both Johannesburg and Durban are still available prior to the event as well as during the course of the conference. To set up an interview contact Lindi Berrino on 082 720 5147 or lindi@reputationmatters.co.za
