Vendex North, the industry’s favourite vending show, is taking place on Tuesday 7 November at its usual iconic venue at Manchester United Stadium, Old Trafford. With just seven weeks to go, the Show is 95% sold with a huge variety of exhibitors covering equipment, products, ingredients, services, new technology and innovative ideas – some 30% of this year’s exhibitors are new to vending which demonstrates just how vibrant this sector is.

This year’s Show has a number of exciting features with the BSA (Beverage Standards Association) again holding its popular barista competition and a new feature with the EDWCA holding a series of seminars on water care during the day. Vendex North is once again the biggest one day trade Show staged at Manchester United.

The action-packed show features everything you need to know about vending in a one-day format (10.00am – 4.00pm) and attracts serious buyers from across the HORECA sector and many large regional and national operators who come to see the latest innovations on offer from manufacturers, importers, service providers, distributors and wholesalers.

The show format also offers superb networking opportunities and everything is done to make visiting easy – easy access, free parking, free entry, free wifi, and free goodie bags and lunch.*

Exhibitors for Vendex North include Mars Chocolate, PepsiCo-Walkers, Tyrrells Crisps, Tchibo Coffee, Unilever Food Solutions, Westomatic, European Watercare and many more leading brand names and new creative companies. The full list is available on the floorplan

Show Director Phil Reynolds of Trade Events, the events company behind Vendex says: “We are expecting an even bigger buzz in Manchester this year as international buyers are flying in for the day and we know that there will be many new products and ideas on show. The one-day format means that people can see and deal with the best the industry has to offer without having to travel too far or disrupt operations. You will find 100 stands at the show so expect lots of activity, from barista-made bespoke coffee, to the unveiling of new products, as many companies use Vendex as a launch pad to show the latest additions to their range. New machines will be unveiled for the first time at Vendex North and visitors will be able to get hands-on with a wide range of equipment and find out the latest industry developments and trends .

Exhibitor testimonials

“It was well organised, easy to navigate and everything we needed as an exhibitioner was provided. Thanks you for a great day, we certainly made lots of connections and found it very beneficial.”

“Vendex does what it says on the tin. It’s a place to do business and we did. For us, Vendex is the best business to business show there is. Well done to the team.”


“The show went brilliantly for us, the thing as exhibitors that we need from an exhibition is a heavy footfall of the right kind of visitors. Vendex delivered this in spades and exceeded all our expectations. Roll on the next one at Old Trafford.
