"This year's iSpot innovation award contest winners are truly creating our industry's leading edge technology.  We applaud each winner for their groundbreaking work developing advances that will lead our industry into the future and we congratulate them on their success," said LyNae Schleyer, NAMA's Senior Director, One Show and Education.

According to Schleyer, this year's judges evaluated entries based on six criteria, including: Features, Benefits, Creativity, Image, Productivity and Profitability. Vendors Exchange earned its awards in three separate categories: Vending Machine, Food Service, and Operating System. Both its VE CONNECT™ interactive touchscreen vending machine and VE VISIBLE™ transparent interactive touchscreen vending machines received awards as did their VE C-Store™ unattended market and their VE Interactive Vending Platform.

"We congratulate Vendors Exchange for its innovation and helping to lead our industry forward through technology, image and creativity," said Schleyer. Vendors Exchange will receive an iSpot symbol to place in its booth at the NAMA OneShow in Las Vegas April 25-27.  Vendors Exchange will be recognized during the NAMA Annual Meeting at the OneShow.

"We're thrilled to receive the iSpot award for the third straight year. It confirms to our customers and our staff that we're listening and responding to the needs of the market with innovations that truly drive revenue," commented Vendors Exchange CEO Brent Garson. "This is an exciting time of transformation in the vending industry, and we believe that the intelligent vending systems and touchscreen interfaces that we're introducing will help our vending partners exploit these emerging technologies."
