In recent years, the Chinese vending industry has been experiencing unprecedented, rapid growth. The number of vending machines located in the market has increased at a rapid growth rate of 50% from nearly 100,000 units in 2014 up to more than 150,000 units in 2016, only in a short period of 2-3 years. There is no doubt for the soaring market growth in China, indicating that Spring has come for the Chinese vending industry.
In order to meet market demands for the vending & OCS machines and technologies at home and abroad, to promote international trades, technology exchanges and cooperation between the Chinese and overseas vending manufacturers and operators, the China International Vending & OCS Showcase (Beijing) 2016 organized by Shanghai WeShow Events Ltd. was first launched as a specialized exhibit zone at the ANUFOOD China 2016, to showcase the new generation of beverage and snack food vending machines, coffee and tea vending machines, fresh-food vending machines, parts and components made in China. With the official support and participation of National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA), European Vending Association (EVA), German Vending Association (BDV) and Spanish Vending Association (ANEDA) and some other international vending associations and media, the First Worldwide Vending Industry Forum (Beijing) 2016 achieved great success where the vending leaders from all over the world gathered in Beijing for the first time, featuring the record-breaking number of international participants and far-reaching significance in the history of vending shows in China.
Backed by the triumphant advancement of the Chinese vending industry, the 2nd China International Vending & OCS Showcase (Beijing) 2017 will be unveiled splendidly at ANUFOOD China 2017. The organizer of vending showcase is committed to creating a new business type or operation model in China, that is, “Vending Machines + Food Retail/Catering Services” to make full use of the smart retail channels of vending machines in the food retail and catering industries, to reinforce the project connections, integrations and cooperation between the vending companies, food and beverage factories, green food production bases and catering brand companies so as to generate new profits for the vending industry. By taking the ANUFOOD China 2017, the largest food exhibition platform in Northern China as a premium growth opportunity, all the organizers involved are trying their best to create an entirely new vending & OCS showcase to keep in line with international practice, lead innovative ideas, hottest technologies and market trends of the vending & OCS sectors.
