Avex – The Home of Vending

AVEX attracts all the key players from the vending and water industries. Conceived in 1969 and the first exhibition of its kind, it has grown to be a highly respected and well attended event. AVEX is a vibrant show at the top of its league.

AVEX is the largest UK exhibition for vending and water. It takes place every two years and is attended by visitors from around the world. You can expect to see over 150 exhibitors including the industry’s major manufacturers, leading operators and service companies. AVEX offers visitors the most up to date and complete range of products and services available.

AVEX is owned by the Automatic Vending Association (AVA) and has been partnered by the European Drinking Water Cooler Association (EDWCA) since 2009. It is therefore organised by people who really understand and appreciate industry needs.


Building on the success of AVEX 2011 where 122 companies exhibited and 3,000 visitors attended, 2013 will see a host of new initiatives and concepts aimed at making the visitor experience even more informative and enjoyable.

We are proud to launch The FM Vending Show – a show within a show and created specifically with the Facilities Manager in mind. This area will focus on delivering real advice on how to increase profits by introducing an array of educative workshops and seminar sessions. The leading national and regional operators will be there to demonstrate their latest innovations and opportunities and there will be pre-arranged “Meet the Buyer” sessions.

The social side of AVEX will also be boosted with the addition of a drinks reception at the end of the first day and an AVA run, Gala Awards dinner on the second evening.
