KNEXT and SAR participated under the "FUTURE of RETAIL" category,
as a technology partner of the public UAE telecommunication group ETISALAT. The participation was tailored around the pre-launch of KNEXT's brand new fully autonomous premium coffee shop, which was developed by SAR in just 10 months.
There are also over 300 snacks and baked goods available for purchase. The system offers comparable revenue potential like a manual, modern coffee shop, but requires only about eight square meters of space and very little manpower.
The fresh premium vending technology is a perfect solution for take-out food businesses as well as shopping malls and corporate dining venues.
The spectrum was broad and ranged from healthcare robotics to smart home technologies, flying drones, indoor farming, e-mobility, logistics solutions and store automation to new unattended catering concepts for the out-of-home market.
KNEXT's high-quality, robotics-supported coffee shop concept was one of the event highlights, and the top exhibit among the foodservice applications and received spectacular response.
The KNEXT team served more than 1,800 coffee specialties, iced teas and snacks to the many international trade visitors over five exhibition days.
Especially KNEXT´s iced espresso and tea drinks prepared by two KUKA robots were particularly well received, in part of course due to Dubai's year-around sunshine with outside temperatures of well over 38 degrees Celsius.
Many conversations with potential clients from the region also re-confirmed that the label "Made in Germany" is more than ever valued very highly as a predicate for sustainable premium quality and innovative high-tech solutions.
They made sure that the new KNEXT coffee shop passed its first international test with flying colors.
Big thanks go to all involved team members on site in Dubai and to all SAR experts who supported the successful launch event from the Dingolfing Headquarters... Chapeau!!
