China VMF has been highly recommended by the insiders all the years. New progresses and highlights of China VMF2018 will surprise all the existing and potential exhibitors, visitors, purchaser, let alone the more prosperous and dynamic market.


In this July, China’s largest e-commerce company Alibaba Group opened the first ‘unmanned retail store’ in Hangzhou, China, which really made a hit and aroused people’s attention on retail machinery and technology. Undoubtedly, vending machinery as the key element will take a vital role. Embracing with such upheard-of business opportunities, the enterprises dealing with automatic vending machines and self-service facilities stand a good chance to explore the market. It is estimated to record 10 million set of vending machines to install across China, conservatively. Even though there only exists about 230 thousand sets, 40 times growth at least will be made in the near future.


With the backing of stunning success in 2017, China VMF2018 holds a larger exhibition area with 21,000 sq.m. and estimated 1,000 booths. More than 300 enterprises, tens of thousands of visitors at home and abroad are expected to take place in!
