Vendex Midlands 2022
After a couple of years of stop starts and ‘will it happen or won’t it’ we are delighted that Phil Reynolds came to us today with confirmation that registration is now OPEN for Vendex Midlands 2022.
PV has been supporting the event for many years but recently we’ve been advising potential entrants into the vending and automated retail world and were surprised that not every knows of the show, or indeed the depth of the industry. So, we have unashamedly cut and pasted the introduction from the Vendex Midlands 2022 website. Here goes…
‘Vendex is a one day exhibition for the vending industry, it has been established for 19 years and has grown in success each year. It is known as the show where the trade buys whether it be machinery, ingredients, products or goods and services.
The vending industry is worth £1.5 billion P/A and vending is seen as an extension of the retail sector where products can be showcased in the workplace, leisure, travel, healthcare and education sectors. If you are unsure if your products are suitable to vend we can help with a product trial before the show. Vendex attracts many visitors and the aisles are full from start to finish with business owners and senior management from vending operators, contract caterers, service providers and facility managers. Vendex is an international show and also attracts exhibitors and visitors from overseas. Vendex is a low cost event held at The Centenary Pavilion – Leeds, MK Dons Stadium – Milton Keynes and DoubleTree by Hilton – Glasgow, all three venues prove to be very successful for visitors and exhibitors with easy access, free parking and Wi-Fi. Exhibitors can set up the day before or on the morning of the show, opening hours are 10am to 4pm. We always aim to make the show as easy for you as possible.
The Shell Scheme stands are 2 metres deep and a choice of 2, 3, 4 and 6 metres wide and are charged at £220 per square metre which includes carpet, pelmet and name boards. Electricity and VAT are additional costs. At our previous shows the visitors arrive early and queue to get in and once they do there is a fantastic buzz and Vendex is busy all day, such is the nature of the vending industry. We hope you can exhibit at Vendex and grow your business and brands via the vending industry.’
