Watercoolers Europe @ Hotel Meliá Berlin

Watercoolers Europe (WE), a federation of 15 European Watercooler National Associations, is well known for its successful and interesting annual events.  Many readers may have visited one of the recent conferences which have been held in Rome, Paris, Krakow and in 2018 Dublin. 

This year, 2019, WE invites the watercooler industry to the capital of Germany, Berlin.  The European industry continues with strong growth opportunities.  WE as well as working continuously on legislative and standards across all markets, supports environmental and hydration solutions.

Exhibitors at the International Fair, held on Friday 18th October, will reflect the development of the market, with new products and new technologies to help visitors grow their businesses.  This is a must-visit event for all those wanting to be at the forefront of the watercooler industry. 

This year WE are delighted to welcome a great array of speakers, including:

For 2019 WE are delighted to welcome NIGEL RISNER as the Keynote Speaker – “Creating Impact Each and Every Time”.  With a record of travelling all over the world motivating and inspiring delegates, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for busy delegates looking for new information to invigorate their businesses.

Interactive Workshops will cover Business Strategy and Technical & Sustainability – something for everyone.  Topics included are mergers & acquisitions, marketing, bottling, new disinfection methods and technical challenges.

We’ll also host a Gala Dinner & Aqua Awards at the prestigious venue in Berlin.  Always an evening to remember and an opportunity to relax and network with colleagues and friends.

Delegates, after visiting the International Trade Fair on Friday 18th October, may like to extend their stay and visit Berlin, which always proves to be both interesting and exciting.

Vendex is a one-day exhibition for the vending industry, it has been established for 15 years and has grown in success each year. It is known as the show where the trade buys whether it be machinery, ingredients, products or goods and services.

The vending industry is worth £1.5 billion P/A and vending is seen as an extension of the retail sector where products can be showcased in the workplace, leisure, travel, healthcare and education sectors. If you are unsure if your products are suitable to vend we can help with a product trial before the show. Vendex attracts many visitors and the aisles are full from start to finish with business owners and senior management from vending operators, contract caterers, service providers and facility managers. Vendex is an international show and also attracts exhibitors and visitors from overseas. Vendex is a low-cost event held at Leeds United and the Birmingham Conference Centre, both venues have proved to be very successful for visitors and exhibitors with easy access, free parking, Wi-Fi and a goodie bag. Exhibitors can set up the day before or on the morning of the show, opening hours are 10am to 4pm. We always aim to make the show as easy for you as possible.
