AVA undertakes communications overhaul!

The website’s being revamped to offer an easy-to-use service which conveniently houses all the information you could possibly need, and will be promoted as the first port-of-call for anyone looking for the latest news, information and issues relating to the vending industry.

We’ll also be using Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook to help communicate our industry’s latest happenings! Implementing social media will refresh the appearance and image of the vending industry, and allow us to convey news, industry views and opinion statements quickly, easily and efficiently. Look for the logos, and get ready to ‘follow’ us and ‘join’ our group!

Watch out for the new AVA e-newsletter! Coming to your inbox in the very near future, the e-newsletter is a new-look version of the printed ‘Voice of Vending’ newsletter. For those of you who enjoyed reading a printed copy don’t worry, a report highlighting the Association’s annual activity will be posted during winter.

The AVA’s your organisation, and we want to hear your thoughts and suggestions as to what you’d like us to be doing and saying. Please email your thoughts to jonathan@ava-vending.co.uk, or give us a call on 020 8661 1112.
