Brussels, 27 April 2021 The Vending & Coffee Solutions Hub has been designed as a unique virtual platform where participants are able to meet the major European industry players, starting on 27 & 28 May with its launch event and continuing for a full year. Upon registration, participants will access the Hub through its virtual lobby which provides a choice between the three main areas: the Auditorium, the Exhibition Hall and the Lounge Room.
As you might expect, the Auditorium will feature regular conferences and webinars, Q&A sessions and speaking opportunities. During the launch of the Hub on 27 & 28 May, a full programme will cover a range of topics including the future of cash and digital payments, developments in packaging, changing consumer behavior, new business for vending, coffee trends and sustainable practices in the industry. These topical speeches will be complemented with input fr om sponsors and expert speeches.
Another key element of the Hub is the Exhibition Hall wh ere the latest industry innovations can be discovered, and business leads and contacts can be made. The Hub will allow participants to set up chat or video appointments with exhibitors, and messages can be followed up. Finally, any documents, videos and contacts fr om the Exhibition Hall can be saved and ‘taken away’ to study in more detail afterwards. We are pleased to announce that EVA Members have the possibility to have a free virtual booth on the Hub for the entire year, meaning the major industry players will have a permanent and contactable presence. The Hub aims to be more than just a virtual experience though, and that is why through the Lounge Room it offers a social experience with human exchanges.
The lounge room will open several chat rooms to allow participants to meet each other and have direct or group chat discussions with experts and sponsors, as well and addressing questions regarding the various webinars and conferences. A relaxed chat room will also be provided, simply because we also need to enjoy networking moments with colleagues, partners and friends.
The unique feature of the Vending & Coffee Solutions Hub is that it will be accessible for one full year. Indeed after the initial 2 day launch the EVA will organize several other events on the platform throughout the year, while the Exhibition Hall and Lounge Room will remain continually open. This will aid vending companies to get in direct contact with each other and hopefully help facilitate the contacts and discussions that would normally take place at physical EVA events and industry exhibitions.
While the Hub will naturally have a European focus, the EVA is confident that it will have a global reach due to the fact that access to the platform will be completely free upon registration. A wide range of interesting sponsoring and visibility opportunities are available, including of course a presence in the exhibition hall, but these are lim ited to the EVA members, the members of the national vending associations & our partners.
We look forward to a diverse and interactive gathering of company representatives on the Vending & Coffee Solutions Hub at its launch on 27 & 28 May and for the coming year.
