Le Forum-EVEX is an opportunity to take the time to meet your representative professional organisation. Since Le Forum 2021, the French Vending Association (NAVSA) has been sponsoring and actively contributing to the development of Le Forum. Because the challenges facing the profession are also regulatory, legislative and public, it is up to everyone to rally around their representative body.

Together, Le Forum and EVEX will give you the opportunity to meet the major players who shape the European market.

For all those who are professionally active and all those who want to deepen their vision of an evolving profession. Two and a half days in Cannes, two sector-specific evenings bring together all the guests and partners. A focus on the core business and personal contact with the vending and coffee sector in France and in Europe. Le Forum aims to highlight the day-to-day activities of operators, sales and OCS professionals, roasters, and new players in 24/7 unattended retail.
Jean Yves Frantz Food Markets consultant and editor-in-chief of Foods&Coffee Markets. With over 20 years' experience of working with companies to understand their needs, he keeps a European watch on market changes, whether social, economic or environmental. Issues that are part of the expectations of those who place orders with vending and OCS professionals.
The EVA is a not-for-profit trade association founded in 1994, which represents the interests of the entire European coffee service and vending industry vis-à-vis the institutions of the European Union and other competent authorities or bodies. The EVA is an international association governed by Belgian law and its members are both national vending associations and companies.

The mission of the EVA is:
- To protect, promote and lead the self-service coffee, food and beverage and point-of-use (POU) industry.
- To provide a single voice for the self-service coffee, food and beverage and point-of-use industry in Europe.
- To become the reference organisation for the provision of industry data and information to all relevant stakeholders.
The French National Federation of Automatic Sales and Services, which brings together all the professionals involved in vending in France (equipment operators, equipment manufacturers and importers, food manufacturers and companies providing so-called "associated" services), is sponsoring this year's Automatic Sales Forum organised by Edyevent. NAVSA is the sector's only professional employers' organisation, with more than 1,000 operating companies, 55,000 employees in France, annual sales of €2.9 billion and more than 600,000 sales outlets nationwide. As such, NAVSA is the voice of companies in the sector, which it represents to public authorities while ensuring the defense of their interests vis-à-vis the public decision-makers. The federation is a founding member of the European industry trade representative, the European Vending and Coffee Service Association (EVA). NAVSA is a member of the Confederation of Wholesale and International Trade (CGI), which brings together 32 wholesale employers' federations, representing more than 22,000 companies and 450,000 jobs in France.
