DALLAS -- Avanti Markets, a main player in self-checkout markets, returned here March 5 and 6 for its second annual operators meeting, following its inaugural event last winter. More than 150 vending operators and suppliers attended the two-day meeting, where Avanti executives unveiled new features and programs for the company’s micromarkets.
Operators of the self-checkout stores and suppliers of products for them shared sales and marketing strategies during a series of education sessions. Roundtable discussions provided a forum for operators to exchange experiences and strategies for the up-and-coming retail model.
"Our goal is to provide value to their business, continue to drive this new segment in a profitable and sustainable way, and ensure the Avanti family remains the market innovator and leader," said Avanti president Chris Vicari.
Avanti Markets is based in Tukwila, WA, and is online at avantimarkets.com.
