Largest showcase of industrial technology in KZN at KITE 2019

In less than two weeks, the doors to the KwaZulu-Natal Industrial Technology Exhibition (KITE) will open at the Durban Exhibition Centre. The 140+ exhibitors, catering to a diverse and large range of industries, have pulled out all the stops to bring best-of-breed industrial technology to the KZN market.

Launched 38 years ago, KITE provides a superlative platform for the manufacturers and suppliers of industrial technology to showcase their products and services to visitors intent on sourcing and purchasing solutions that will drive up productivity and profitability, while simultaneously assisting with future-proofing and sustainability of business operations.

“There are hundreds of solutions available at KITE including product handling equipment; workwear; technology to monitor production lines; hearing health care; pneumatics, electric and process automation products and solutions; product tracking systems; fasteners, tools, abrasives, drill bits and engineering consumables; SCADA; IoT solutions for industrial condition monitoring; industrial load cells; emergency safety showers and eyewash equipment; pumps; adhesives; CNC cutting machines; and water control valves,” says Nick Sarnadas, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions a division of Montgomery Group.

In addition to the exhibitor solutions, the Expo also creates an environment for knowledge enhancement, with the 19 free-to-attend sessions at the SAIMechE Seminar Theatre, the paid-for LEEASA Conference and the free-to-attend MESA Special Interest Group. Visitors can also see artisans demonstrate trade skills learned at the Artisan Training Institute (ATI), in the dedicated Artisan Training Zone.

“We encourage visitor to activate their badges by printing them out and planning their visits using the exhibitor list on the KITE website. There is a lot to do and see and we have designed the KITE App – available at or  – to help visitors stay in touch and find out everything they need to know with just a finger tap on their mobile devices,” says Sarnadas.  

While all efforts are made to retain the current seminar programme, it may be subject to change. Visitors should visit to view updated seminar schedules.
