EuVend 2009

Strong Exhibitor Interest In Euvend 2009 Cologne, Germany Despite Slow Economy

Chicago, IL – Cologne, Germany – April 22, 2009

Based on early bookings and space demand, Eu´Vend, the International Trade Fair for the Vending Industry, looks poised to become another successful event. The 4th edition of this biennial trade show will again be organized by Koelnmesse GmbH in cooperation with the German Vending Association and will take place from September 10-12, 2009 in Cologne, Germany.

Eu´Vend links manufacturers of vending machines, product manufacturers, operators and potential users of vending machines. Product segments will consist of vending machines, filling products (food and non-food), operating systems, payment systems and services. The 2007 event attracted 5,108 attendees from 64 countries and 227 exhibiting companies from 17 countries.

Highlights will be the “Visions of Vending” seminar and the “Vending Innovation” competition, which recognizes the most innovative concepts and ideas with the presentation of the “Vending Star” award.

One of the novelties in 2009 will be the “Shopping made easy!” toolbox made by Bosch, a vending machine with a new, gentle transport lift system, which sells power tools such as drilling machines, powered screwdrivers, compass saws and laser telemeters. The machine accepts cash or debit card payment and the receipt secures warranty rights.

Eu´Vend’s attendees are European suppliers, brokers and distributors of products and services for the vending industry. The main product categories at EuVend will be Vending Machines, OCS, Payment Systems, Products for Vending Machines, Remote Data Transmission, Machine Parts and Software for Vending Machines.
