In response to comments received from our exhibitors and visitors to both Vendex North and Vendex Midlands, we have included a blog on our website to raise and comment on issues, trends and opportunities for the vending industry.
Phil and Jenny Reynolds, both Directors of Trade Events, the company behind Vendex, will provide regular blog posts but welcome and encourage guest bloggers. If you have an idea for a future blog post or would like to contribute, please email firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
