It will take place inside the Venditalia trade show from 11 to 14 May in a dedicated area. EVEX is organised by the European Vending & Coffee Service Association (EVA) in cooperation with the Italian Vending Association (CONFIDA) and Venditalia.
EVEX will provide four days of business experiences, with several keynote speeches, conferences, workshops and showcases per day. Daily updates on the activities of the EVA as well as the national vending associations are planned along with ‘speed dating’ possibilities and detailed information on the vending market across Europe.
The EVEX area at Venditalia is designed to be an interactive and insightful zone with knowledge exchange and business networking at its forefront. The EVA and national association booths will be located in this area, offering the opportunity to find out more about local trends and developments, while a number of stands from among the membership will also be featured.
The EVEX zone will be equipped with a bar counter where coffee experiences can be demonstrated, showing the different cultures as well as preferences in the industry.
EVEX aims to provide an easy and friendly means to meet fellow professionals, and therefore many moments in the daily schedule are designed to help attendees meet new suppliers, operators and find potential business partners over some food and drinks. The EVA is working on a number of cocktails for international operators so best practices between peers can be shared and discussed. As in previous editions, EVEX will of course incorporate a gala evening.
There is no additional entrance fee to be able to visit or attend the EVEX area of Venditalia. The EVA will soon present a range of attractive sponsoring packages for its members as well as for members of the national vending associations.
