EVEX, the European Vending Experience, returned to Venditalia this year with a new format as a specific zone inside the Venditalia trade show.
The EVEX area at Venditalia was conceived as an interactive zone focussed on knowledge exchange business networking and the attendance figures during each EVEX session demonstrated that this objective had been achieved. A wide range of important industry topics were featured, including market trends, how to diversify your business, working with water dispensers, digitalisation, payments amongst many more.
In addition to the central conference area, the EVEX zone was made up of EVA and national association booths, sponsored stands, and a large networking and food/drinks area where breakfast, lunches and cocktails were provided. Quality coffee was, of course, ‘on-tap’, and a very cool, daily barista show demonstrating latte art kept the space continually animated.
The zone also hosted a delegation representing the Ukrainian vending industry. They spoke poignantly about the daily life of an operator during the war…
Being the first large industry trade show since the pandemic, The EVA was delighted to be able to catch up with members, as well as having the opportunity to explain our services and membership benefits to other interested and innovative companies.
The EVA is very grateful to the sponsors of EVEX, who made the event possible and contributed strongly to its success – indeed a number of sponsors presentations perfectly complemented the wider EVEX discussions. The EVEX 2022 sponsors were 365 Retail Markets, BWT Water+More, Coffee & Drink Systems, Cupernican, EVOCA Group, Post Luxembourg, Televend, V2V Factory, Worldline and Xconik.
