About AVEX International 2015

The UK’s largest bi-annual vending conference, AVEX 2015 will attract thousands of delegates from across the vending, water and HORECA sectors. Returning to Manchester Central on 30 June – 1 July 2015, the industry’s most anticipated event will also celebrate 2000 years of vending.

What's happening on the day

  • Celebrating 2000 years of Vending!

    Indulging in a spot of nostalgia, we will look back over the past 2000 years and ahead to what the industry can expect for the next two millennial, including the rise of cashless payment systems and the Button Barista movement that is taking on the might of the high street. We will also welcome our inspirational guest speaker – Kriss Akabusi.

    Join us in the celebrations, either as exhibitor or visitor, while networking with some of the industry’s most celebrated businesses and influences.

  • Health & Wellbeing Zone

    We’re thrilled to announce the launch of an exciting Health and Wellbeing Zone at AVEX 2015. This latest addition to next year’s event comes hot on the heels of the AVA’s recent appearance on BBC Radio Tees during a debate on healthy vending in hospitals.
    Responding to the nation’s need for healthier alternatives, our innovative Health and Wellbeing Zone is a first for AVEX, and will focus on promoting healthier vending products.
    And for the smaller and start-up businesses in the industry, our new zone will provide you with the opportunity to exhibit at a fraction of the cost!

  • HoReCa visitors set to surge due to new area Barista street


    Barista Street is a brand new zone at AVEX 2015 which will showcase the industry’s latest, most innovative Bean to Cup machines, responsible for bringing coffee shop excellence to vending.

    Demand for Bean to Cup machines is growing all the time as more of the leisure industry looks to bring a taste of the high street into their venues. So visiting AVEX 2015 has never been more important if you operate in the HoReCa market.

    Our latest figures have revealed that we’re already expecting around 1,000 decision makers from the HoReCa sector to find suppliers, source innovative technologies and most importantly purchase!

    The addition of Barista Street offers even more opportunities to build business relationships with the HoReCa market at AVEX 2015, delivering yet another reason not to miss out!

  • Introducing The Vendies

    Vendie season has begun!

    2015 will see the third year of the Vending Industry Awards, and a new identity for the industry event of the year…

    Taking place at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate on the 1st July 2015, after the last day of AVEX 2015, The Vendies celebrates outstanding products and people in the vending industry.

    The party will begin with VIP drinks for sponsors and their guests at the Hilton’s exclusive Cloud 23 bar, accessible only by private lift. A champagne reception for all attendees and a three-course gourmet dinner will follow, with entertainment provided throughout the night. Initial rumours hint at table caricaturists, Indian palm readers, a Seaga car rally and a live band… this is not one to be missed!

    The Vendies is a celebration of everything the vending industry has to offer. More than just a ’dinner and awards’, it will be a night to remember, with music, entertainment, great food and drink and the opportunity to catch up with industry friends old and new.

    The success of the 2014 Vending Industry Awards augurs well for next year, and The Vendies 2015 is set to be the biggest and best event yet!
