EurOps 2011 will be themed "Getting more from less, opportunities to raise the profitability of vending operating" on April 14 and April 15 in Lisbon, Portugal. EurOps 2011 will draw upon some lessons learned during the recession. The conference program will be divided into three sessions on vending operating entitled: Efficiencies, Opportunities and Finance Management.
Europs 2011 is expected to be a unique opportunity to bring the main European operators and suppliers together. The aim of this edition is to provide operators with first-hand information from fellow colleagues on how to improve their business profitability.
Some major networking events have been organized in addition to the conference. An ice-breaking cocktail is being organized to welcome participants on April 14. On April 15, after the conference, participants will have dinner aboard a yacht, which will
sail along the Tajo river. The EVA will be distributing its very first "Image of Vending" award to its winner. Applications for the award are now open to the EVA's members and National Association members.
Another innovation of EurOps 2011, and with the aim of increasing attendance from European operators in the event, the EVA proposes the possibility of benefiting from a new sponsoring formula called "supportive sponsoring" (This is in addition to its usual sponsoring program). Supportive sponsors will have the opportunity to strengthen the relationship with their main operators by inviting them to join EurOps 2011, at a preferential rate. All the information is published in the EVA's webpage, in the events section.
