Brussels-based EVA, or the European Vending & Coffee Service Association, announced this week that EVEX will return as an in-person event inside this year’s Venditalia trade show. The 12th annual Venditalia will take place May 11-14 at Fiera Milano in Rho, Italy (near Milan).
EVEX, which stands for the European Vending Experience, is organized by the EVA in cooperation with Italy’s vending association CONFIDA and Venditalia’s organizers. This year’s program will provide four days of business experiences, keynote speeches, conferences, workshops and showcases. Daily updates on the activities of the EVA and Europe’s national vending associations are planned.
According to EVA, the EVEX area at Venditalia will be an “interactive and insightful zone with knowledge exchange and business networking at its forefront.” The EVA and EU national association booths will be in this area, creating opportunities for participants to learn more about local trends.
The EVEX zone will also be equipped with a bar counter where coffee experiences can be demonstrated.
The overall experiential exhibit is designed to to match suppliers and operators, and meet potential business partners over food and drinks, the association said.
EVA is reportedly planning to offer specialty local cocktails for international visitors. As with previous editions, this year's EVEX will incorporate an evening gala.
No additional entrance fee is needed to visit the EVEX area during Venditalia. For more details about EVEX 2022, including sponsorship packages, contact EVA’s Julie Barth at [email protected]. Regular updates will be published at vending-europe.eu.
