The European Vending and Coffee Service Association (EVA) has announced its AGM and conference will take place on 10 December.
The conference entitled ‘Getting you back on track’ will welcome key speaker and tech entrepreneur Dhiraj Mukherjee, and will host important business presentations from sponsors outlining how each of them propose to help vending companies adapt to the impact of the pandemic and get the industry back to growth.
The EVA AGM will highlight the activities of the Association this year, including work on helping members deal with the impact of the coronavirus. The latest results of the EVA COVID-19 impact report are to be revealed for the first time during the event – results that will not be positive – but at the same time are important to help vending companies understand in detail the current landscape across Europe.
Keynote speaker Dhiraj Mukherjee is an experienced digital business executive and co-founder of the billion dollar company Shazam. He will draw on his experience of the financial crisis of 2008 to deliver a speech adapted to vending professionals and incorporating the topics ‘designing for uncertainty’ ‘learning to learn’ and ‘how to survive.’
Taking place under the ongoing COVID-19 shadow, the event will be held digitally, allowing participants to easily join from all corners of Europe. The business presentations by 365 Retail Markets, OTI, EVOCA and NAYAX will take place in separate breakout rooms enabling participants to select and choose their preferred topics upon registration.
The event is free for EVA members and registration can be done before 8 December. Non Members are also welcome and able to attend for a small fee.
