rewarding excellence Since 2013

The key networking event for the vending sector is back!

The Vendies, as featured on the BBC’s One Show and organised by the publisher of Vending International magazine, Datateam Business Media, will take place at the London’s Café de Paris on Tuesday 2 June 2020, and will continue its long-standing tradition of rewarding forward-thinking companies, innovative products and inspirational people within the sector during a fun-filled awards dinner.

Celebrating standout suppliers and operators regionally and nationally, the event has been at the forefront of best practice, innovation and excellence for years but the 2020 ceremony is not just about the prestigious accolades; it is also a prime opportunity to socialise and network with friends and colleagues, as well as existing and potential new clients.

The Vendies is attended by key figures and companies from across the industry – including pioneering independents, major operators and global suppliers. So you can’t afford to miss it!

Matt Sayers, Express Vending

“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.”

Simon Black, SB Software

“Attending the Vendies is an ideal chance to improve on your knowledge of the sector, and hopefully fill in some gaps too (finding out about things that you weren’t even aware of).

“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.”

Mark Taylor, Abbeychart

“As an established supplier (now 27 years in business) 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 and supplying into, in a spirit of partnership.”
