After a period of postponement, The Vendies – the leading scheme for the recognition of excellence in the vending industry – are back to honour forward-thinking companies, innovative products and inspirational professionals from across the sector.

While proceedings were halted due to the pandemic, The Vendies has returned with a brand-new date for 2021 and entries have been reopened with an extended deadline of Friday 5 February.

Now more than ever it’s vital that the hard work of operators, suppliers and, of course, the professionals at the heart of companies across the vending industry, is recognised and celebrated. With that being said, submitting an entry in The Vendies couldn’t be easier.

All submissions made during the initial call for entries will remain eligible to compete, so if you’ve already taken the time to prepare and submit your entry, there’s no need to re-enter.

As an established supplier selling into a range of OEMs and operators in the UK Vending market, we feel it is important to support and celebrate our industry and The Vendies the perfect event for this.

We look forward to taking along a selection of customers who we enjoy strong working relationships with, in a spirit of partnership.


Receiving such industry recognition is a testament to the efforts we take to consistently innovate and deliver exceptional service levels. Express and our people strive for excellence and these awards are a tremendous marker for our ongoing performance.


Attending the Vendies is an ideal chance to improve on your knowledge of the sector, and hopefully fill in some gaps too.

The Vendies evening is a great event, bringing together key players – the movers and the shakers – in the UK vending sector. It’s always fun, so conversation flows freely. AND it’s always extremely useful for business at the same time.
