The presence of the Premier League Cup may have rubbed off on Vendex Midlands this year as organisers described it as another great success.
Pristine new coffee machines, eye catching sweet and savoury snacks, hands-on technology and filtration, cleaning and maintenance products stood alongside each other at this one day one-stop shop vending show.
Pre-registrations for the show hit an all-time high of nearly 50% up on last year and visitor numbers reflected this, organisers revealed.
Show director Phil Reynolds commented: “It really has been another great event and we would like to thank all our exhibitors for pulling the stops out again this year and of course the many visitors that make the show so worthwhile.
“As a sponsor of AVA Live, we were delighted to welcome the Automatic Vending Association (AVA) team to Vendex to help promote the event that will take place in London in June. We look forward to seeing some of the faces here today at the AVA event in the summer.”
Visiting the event, Mathews Thomas from Surrey Vending Ltd and RebelVend UK Ltd commented: “Vendex is the best opportunity to see everything under one roof.”
Darren James from Westway Vending Ltd said: “Vendex is absolutely vitally important for us…it gives us the opportunity to feed back requirements from our clients, so that the companies here can look at developing new machines that provide solutions to those problems.”
Vendex North takes place at a new venue, The Centenary Pavilion, Leeds, on October 30. Exhibitor space has sold out but registration is open www.vend-ex.com
