Avanti Markets Inc. released its Market Activity/Billboard Display Monitor at the 2015 NAMA OneShow in Las Vegas, NV. The billboard is positioned in the market, often above the kiosk, and shows an ongoing display of recent purchases at the market. If a customer scans their item then selects the cancel button the transaction will appear red on the screen, allowing peers to view if their co-worker has canceled a transaction. The multifunction display is divided between an ongoing feed of both canceled and purchased transactions, along with rotating commercials. AP Plastics Inc. announced that its four and six hole (SCF4 & SCF6) K-Cup ® holders will be part of its proprietary Guest Room Single Cup Display System, and will be available to ship this coming August. The new "Ship Flat" Displays are manu- factured in North America with 100 percent re- processed and recyclable plastic. The unique "click open" design reduces both packaging and freight costs. The brewer trays have built-in compartments to organize condiments and accessories.
