Vendex North, the UK’s vending trade show, takes place on October 30 this year in a brand-new location – the Centenary Pavilion in the dynamic and diverse city of Leeds.
Conveniently situated next door to Leeds United Football Club the venue is easily accessible by road, rail and air and offers ample free parking.
Vendex show director Phil Reynolds comments: “Vendex North has grown so much over the years that we really needed to find a more spacious venue with plenty of complimentary parking, good transport links, superb facilities and friendly, highly capable staff. After visiting a number of venues in the North we think we’ve scored with The Centenary Pavilion and its skilled and able team. Leeds is a vibrant city, with a healthy record of economic growth and we hope exhibitors and visitors are as excited about the new venue and location as we are.”
The venue isn’t all that’s new about Vendex North. To help celebrate and communicate some of the exciting innovations and trends happening within the industry, Vendex launched International Vending Week(IVW)earlier this year. The week begins on October 23 and culminates at Vendex North on October 30. Exhibitors are encouraged to share their participation in IVW through the use of the logo, sharing IVW collateral and completing and sharing the IVW vending survey. Survey results will be shared when the week ends.
The Centenary Pavilion is easily accessible by road and public transport. Parking is free, wi-fi is free, there’s a free goodie bag for the first 500 visitors and entry is free. Vendex North’s one day format from 10am-4pm means that time away from your desk is minimised.
Previous exhibitor VMC had the following to say about Vendex: “It’s a great show because you manage to meet all of the trade within one day.”
Visitor to the show Westways Vending said: “We have come away from the exhibition with a few more ideas about other machines and products we weren’t even aware of, like nitro coffee – this wouldn’t have been possible without coming to Vendex.”
Robelvend UK said: “Vendex is the best opportunity to see everything under one roof. The vending industry is always evolving, and you need to keep pace with what’s happening in a fast-paced industry if you want to provide the best service to your clients.
