Visitors see can the latest innovations from the industry with over half of exhibitors unveiling new, enhanced or expanded product ranges at the show – including include cups, filters, snacks, beverages, healthier options and the latest vending systems.

As well as presenting the latest in vending from across the globe, organisers have lined up a two-day speaker programme to inform and inspire attendees.

“We are bringing together a great line up of eminent presenters talking about a broad range of subjects from allergens, cashless payments and Brexit to employment law, digital marketing and hydration.
