The stage is set for Vendex North on November 7 – with more than 100 stand spaces taken and pre-registrations said to be higher than they have ever been before.
Show director Phil Reynolds says: “We are so excited to open the doors to the Show at Manchester United this year, knowing we are offering both exhibitors and visitors the best show to date. With pre-registrations at a record high, exhibitors can be assured that they will do great business all day and visitors know that they can see, try and taste the latest product and service innovations in our sector. We know that buyers are looking for new and interesting ideas reflecting the most current trends and with more than 30% of our exhibitors coming to Vendex for the first time, they are guaranteed lots of fresh ideas. Vendex always has a great buzz about it and this year it’s going to be better than ever.”
Vendex North has a strong international element to it this year with exhibitors and visitors flying in from countries including Germany, the Netherlands, Taiwan, Ireland, Spain, Italy and the USA.
This year the show offers a new special partners’ area, Cafe Biz Expo, which features the EDWCA and BSA. The EDWCA has around 100 members that deliver point of use (POU) and bottled drinking water coolers. Also a member of the European Vending Association (EVA), an EU-accredited lobbying organisation based in Brussels, it is dedicated to recognising service excellence in the water cooler and beverage industry within the home and workplace environment. The BSA works with members to drive best practice in the industry delivering training and education programmes to improve the standard and quality of products and service in the out of home hot beverage market. The BSA is holding its Annual Awards ceremony and Challenge at Vendex North in the partners’ area.
Manchester United Football Stadium is easily accessible and parking and entry to the show is completely free. There is also the added bonus of a free goody bag and lunch. The Show is open from 10am until 4pm on 7 November in the Manchester Suite at Manchester United Football Stadium.
