David Llewellyn

The AVA is hosting its latest AVA Live: On the Road alongside EVOCA this month. The event will take place on 15 June at the EVOCA premises in Kingswinford, with activities beginning at midday.

To ensure that members are up-to-date with the latest information on the single use cup levy legislation, David Llewellyn, Chief Executive of the AVA, will be joined by Adrian Platt to provide an update as part of its commitment to supporting members and ensuring they have all of the information they need as the industry faces its latest challenge.

The AVA will also be revealing the results of its 2021 census at the event, with Martin Colston presenting highlights and key finds, including – market movements and new opportunities for the vending industry.

Following these activities, the AVA AGM will be held, providing the opportunity for visitors to hear more about the annual accounts and state of the vending industry and an update on board voting.

‘We’re really looking forward to the AVA Live event and it’s great that we are able to hold it in person for the first time since the start of the pandemic’, AVA CEO David Llewellyn said. ‘The industry has faced a number of significant challenges over the course of the past two years and continues to do so, with new legislation on the horizon. We are firmly committed to supplying members with all of the information and support they need as they navigate these changes, so we’re looking forward to seeing as many members as possible at the event and hopefully, we’ll raise a glass together at the end of the day!’

Evoca UK MD Hervé Donneaud is also looking forward to welcoming visitors: ‘After the restrictions on in-person events in recent years, it will be good to welcome AVA Members to our new premises on the fifteenth. An exceptional agenda awaits them, but also a great opportunity to come together over a meal or a drink with friends and the Vending Family.’

The event begins at noon and will conclude around 4:30. Attendance is free to all AVA members.
