Plans for Vendex Midlands gather momentum

Vendex Midlands is filling up with exhibitors fast with plenty of new machines and products being launched at the show planned for the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes on March 22.

This is the second time the event is being held in Milton Keynes with the 2022 show proving to be a hit with exhibitors and visitors because of the good road links and all the free parking they could have hoped for.

Vendex is a one-day exhibition for the vending industry that has been established for 20 years growing in success every year.

It is known as the show “where the trade buys” whether it be machinery, ingredients, products or goods and services.

Currently the out of home (OOH) sector is bristling with new product ideas for the coming year and there will be new exhibitors and innovative developments showcased.

In addition, unattended retailing systems and micro markets are leading the way, as are quality coffee machines, healthy snacks and drinks, machine finance, touchless payment systems and telemetry to successfully manage your business.

The vending industry, seen as an extension of the retail sector, is worth £2.2 billion a year with its products accessed in the workplace, leisure, travel, healthcare and education sectors.

Vendex is an international show attracting exhibitors and visitors from overseas with the one-day format from 10am to 4pm previously proving popular with visitors and exhibitors alike.

Milton Keynes is well placed to host Vendex Midlands as it is the centre point between London, Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge – just 35 minutes by train from Central London, and well-served by London Luton airport, just over half an hour’s drive away.
