    Another part of the exhibition was the Best Vending Beverage contest, which is dedicated to improving the quality of drinks from vending machines. The winners were Rheavendors East, OOO SIBA-Vending, and GK Vavilon Vending.

    For the first time, the VendExpo and WRS5 ran alongside the international BUYBRAND Franchise Market exhibition, which featured 103 Russian and international franchising brands. The union of the two exhibitions under the theme of “business” serves as a good demonstration of the powerful effect of synergy. Over the three days, they were attended by over 9,000 visitors.

    This exhibition has shown that the vending market in Russia is developing dynamically, new players are appearing, and the level of interest from major FMCG companies in vending as a sales channel is growing. Of the key trends in the Russian vending market, it is also worth noting the following:

    • Sales growth with regard to desktop vending machines due to the convergence of the vending industry and HoReCa;
    • Financial organizations renewed leasing programs for the vending industry (an increase of 25% as compared to 2016).
    • The Coffee ToGo machine generates revenue by 25–50% more than a regular machine;
    • The share of non-cash payments will soar (an increase of 200–300% as compared to 2016);
    • New tools for digital interaction with the consumer (applications, touchscreen interfaces, etc.) will be developed.

    The next exhibition will take place in Spring 2019, and promises to be just as interesting and appealing to Russian and foreign businesspeople alike. See you at VendExpo 2019!
