Welcome letter by Erwin Wetzel, Director General of the European Vending Association



Dear Organisers and Guests of the China International Vending & OCS Showcase,


My name is Erwin Wetzel and I am the Director General of the European Vending Association (EVA), an organisation that aims not only at promoting the industry in Europe, but also to create and maintain strong relationships with our partners around the World. We wish to learn from different markets, but also to share experiences and best practices.


We are glad to see that the 2016 edition of the China International Vending & OCS Showcase will take place alongside with ANUFOOD 2016 China, organised by our partner Koelnmesse. We can only support this strategic move, because the vending & OCS business is very much linked to the other channels delivering food and drinks. We are one of the distribution channels and therefore the exhibitors of our industry branch can look forward to meet many potential new customers.


The vending market in China is taking off, but there is still a large room for growth. Hence, with this partnership with ANUFOOD China, vending & OCS will become more popular and get the opportunity to demonstrate that it can satisfy the needs of Chinese consumers for more convenience, joy and indulgence.


I am personally delighted to have the opportunity to participate in this year’s show and from what I have seen, the show will be extremely interesting and professional. This event should be top of your agenda if you want to widen and deepen your knowledge about vending as well as to find new business opportunities.


The EVA is eager to continue providing information, advice and support to the Chinese vending stakeholders, as well as to promote the benefits of setting up a Chinese vending association in a not too distant future. 


Please do not hesitate to contact me for any information that you may wish to have on our organisation or about vending around the world.

I wish you a very successful show and very good business!


Erwin Wetzel
