First exhibitor statements
Eu'Vend & coffeena 2017
The Eu'vend & Coffeena 2017 fair was not only a first time visit for 365 Retail Markets, but our first European appearance as an Exhibitor. Eu'Vend provided an incredible networking opportunity for us that we walked away with more new leads and opportunities than we even anticipated. With a platform for our CEO to speak and educate the attendees on MicroMarkets, we received more interest at our booth than we could keep up with. The preparation that we received prior to arriving at the show from the U.S team was more than satisfactory. They completely guided us through every step being an international Operator and we couldn't have done it without them. Looking forward to having an even bigger booth at the 2019 show!

It’s simply the trade fair where, for three days in Cologne, answers are provided to the central questions: What’s moving the sector? What innovations are there? What direction is the sector heading in? It was shortly after the Internorga this year, but that didn’t do any harm. A stand that welcomed a large number of visitors on all days and excellent networking – our summary of the Eu’Vend 2017 is entirely positive.

It was clear once again this year that the Eu’Vend & coffeena fulfils its role as the “marketplace” for the vending sector. It’s the ideal forum for nurturing existing relationships, establishing contacts and gaining new inspiration, concentrated over three days. We had the opportunity to showcase Sinalco as an attractive and professional partner for the vending sector. It wasn’t the quantity of customer contacts that impressed us first and foremost, it was their quality.

We attended the Eu'Vend & coffeena 2017 for the first time as an exhibitor and were very positively impressed, by the trade fair itself but also by the visitors. These are a select group, so there were no overcrowded aisles. Visitors are decision-makers who know precisely what they want. This was the first time we as a brand manufacturer and traditional retail supplier exhibited at the Eu'Vend & coffeena. For us, the trade fair was a very successful way to enter the vending/machine business; we were able to generate a large number of both national and international contacts. As a newcomer to the trade fair, the quality of the customer contacts was particularly impressive. Visitors’ response to our nutritious organic snacks in a handy to-go format was excellent.
The interest in one-on-one discussions was particularly high this year. Lots of operators want to find out about FleXoco’s product depth in a quiet atmosphere, as well as discuss the fuss-free private label possibilities we are known to offer our customers. This meant that we were extremely busy on all days of the trade fair, as the questions, suggestions and wishes of the sector are, naturally, very important to us. Our stand welcomed a large number of both German and international visitors across the whole three days. This year’s Eu’Vend & coffeena was characterised in particular by the quality of visitors. You cannot compare the Eu’Vend & coffeena with large events. Rather, it is a very nicely proportioned trade fair. The quality of visitors was very high this year. We had almost every country there: Germany, Austria, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Scandinavia, the UK, Italy, Russia and the UAE. Almost all of our visitors were interested in substantial quantities. We also carried out annual listing talks on all days. We are looking forward to taking part in the next, exciting Eu’Vend in 2019.

Eu’Vend 2017: An international crowd, great workshops and professional expertise make this trade fair so valuable. The presentation of the “Vending Star” award on the Rhine terrace was terrific and made this trade fair deserve the title “extremely valuable” or “best international trade fair”.
Sales Director Germany
For Huhtamaki as a plastics processing manufacturer for food service packaging, Eu’Vend & coffeena has been one of the most important European trade fairs in the vending and coffee to go segment for many years. Eu’Vend & coffeena offers an ideal platform for deepening existing customer relationships and establishing international contacts. What makes it so great is the large number of trade visitors. Unfortunately, despite a multitude of interesting talks and discussions, the visitor numbers seem to be stagnating somewhat compared to past years. We’re looking forward to taking part as an exhibitor in Eu’Vend & coffeena 2019 and are confident that the visitor figures will increase in 2018.
Head of Sales Vending DACH
The Eu’Vend is always an important exhibition for us at Imping’s Kaffee. The quality of the national and international trade visitors and decision makers was confirmed once again in 2017. There was a successful blend of existing and new customers. Therefore, we want to emphatically recommend this trade fair and we look forward to the next Eu’Vend & coffeena in 2019.
We see the trade fair positively and hope that we will be able to generate as many contacts as we did this year in two years’ time.
General Manager D-A-CH
We were very positively surprised by this year’s Eu’Vend & coffeena. From our point of view, the trade fair has developed into a central meeting point for the sector.
General Manager Schaerer Deutschland GmbH
From Rheavendors’ point of view, the stand traffic and quality of discussions was better than in 2015. We were also able to welcome more international guests.
