What’s Trending in Vending?


The humble vending machine is the most exciting part about the trip to any leisure centre and the watering hole in an office; typically filled with chocolate bars, energy drinks, sandwiches—all the usual suspects.


How about this for a twist: imagine designer handbags and expensive perfumes, bottles of champagne and whiskey chilled to its optimum temperature—all available in the same vending machine. Now that is the epitome of convenient luxury!


Enter Bright Blue, where vending machines are reimagined and industry standards are forgotten in the rear-view mirror.


Bright Blue is shaking up the scene by giving elderly vending machines a high-tech makeover. With their expertise, old machines become digital-billboard-vending-machine hybrids, opening avenues for marketing in vending that were previously unimaginable.


Bright Blue have mastered the art of marrying the old with the new and their latest installation is no exception.

Digital age meets symbol of industrial heritage; Bright Blue debuted their high-end retail machine at the iconic and historic Battersea Power Station in 2024.


This futuristic machine fits right in at the converted power station turned shopping centre, renowned for its fashion giant tenants such as Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. However, they face a formidable opponent in the form of a less traditional, high-end, shopping experience.
