My 20/CENT

It isn’t the biggest trade event out there with “only” 180 exhibitors. However, the vending industry is a field with many reasonable size events where experts and professionals can meet and where visitors can pick up the trends of the industry. Eu'Vend & coffeena is one of those expert events. Therefore my ticket is booked.

It will also allow me to make comparisons with the event I recently visited in Paris. But after some research and some reading, I am sure the event in Cologne will be as interesting and also of high level. I only wonder if I’ll notice similar trends as in Paris or new ones.

Well if you are there, give me a sign; I am sure we can find a place to get a coffee and chat.




Eu’Vend & coffeena , from 27th till 28th of April 2017, Koelnmesse, Cologne, Germany,  www.euvend-coffeena.com.
