Cape 2015 to be sponsored by DHL

25 November, 2014

Wines of South Africa’s major trade show, Cape 2015 is to be sponsored for the first time by express logistics company, DHL Express.

The three-day exhibition, now triennial, will take place at the start of the Southern Hemisphere's 2015 spring season, running from September 15 to 17 in Cape Town at the city's International Convention Centre.

Wosa CEO Siobhan Thompson said DHL's backing would take the event to a new level. "Delegates will have the opportunity to experience the range and depth of South Africa's vinous dexterity, strengthened by new approaches to wine-growing and winemaking that have resulted in bold, unique and unmistakably local wines.

DHL Express South Africa managing director Hennie Heymans said, “Our role is to 'deliver' Cape Wine to the international wine community through this sponsorship. We see our support as part of a long-term partnership with South Africa's thriving wine industry, increasingly acknowledged for excellence around the world. Ours is a close and symbiotic relationship that continues to strengthen as the country's wine producers expand their global footprint.”
