Vendex: The National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham, 24 April
European Coffee Expo: Olympia, London, 22-23 May
Every year it’s the same: as soon as the sun takes its first tentative peek through the clouds, you know the time to pack a bag is just around the corner… Before you know it, it’s show time again.
We’ll be at Vendex on 24 April, revving our engines and doing spectacular wheelies around The National Motorcycle Museum. OK, that last bit wasn’t true but rest assured, we will be showing some machines that deserve their places on the winner’s podium.
Let’s deal with the vending machine contingent first. Exciting stuff: three attractive machines from Necta will take the chequered flag. There’s the Opera SFB, complete with its fabulous media screen; there’s the latest incarnation of the top-selling Samba Touch and – you might argue we’ve saved the best til last – the Canto Touch with its new module for added extras… This is a real ‘must see’ for every Vendex attendee.
Across the aisle on our HoReCa / OCS stand, there are more goodies over which you can unashamedly drool. First and foremost, there’s the brand new Necta Kalea FM (fresh milk) machine. Kalea FM can be described in one word: ‘Mmmm!’
And there’s more: for those locations where fresh milk machines aren’t practical, but coffee quality can’t be compromised, take a look at a new version of Kalea that uses freeze-dried milk. Then there are the Krea Touch ES and the latest addition to the Wittenborg 9100 family – the ESFB Tea.
After Vendex, we’re taking the trailer to London’s Olympia for the debut edition of an exciting new show called ‘European Coffee Expo’. It’s all happening on May 22-23 and, for the first time, we’ll be showing a range of traditional espresso machines from Gaggia alongside our Necta models. It promises to be a belter!
So, if you can’t make it to the second city, come to the capital! As always, we’ll be ready with a warm welcome.
