bringing business to business
We find the forecourt industry of the Asia Pacific region at a crossroads. Faced by increasing pressure to transition to cleaner practices – and an increased need to widen retail offerings – oil companies are having to think more intelligently. This means explicitly moving away from a vehicle-centric business model towards one that puts the customer first.
It is with this context that PetroForum APAC returns to the AVANI Riverside in Bangkok for two days of valuable networking, meetings and discussion between the region's leading oil companies and the world's leading suppliers to the industry.
Our renowned two day format – combining one-to-one meetings, informal networking and cutting-edge industry content – hands you the tools and know-how to create a more successful business, focusing on streamlining processes and developing strategies for future growth. We have a proven track-record of enabling connections between both people and businesses; where everyone can identify opportunities and explore tomorrow’s solutions today.
2020 will be the eighth iteration of PetroForum APAC; it continues to be the only event that continues to attract the key influencers in the industry.

The future of service stations
A number of far-reaching trends are disrupting the fuel retail market. Among the most powerful of these are the rise of alternative fuels, the emergence of new models in mobility, and the evolution of heightened consumer expectations around convenience and personalization. The impetus for these disruptions comes from an array of powerful new digital technologies—everything from AI to robotics to the IoT.
The ongoing shifts will alter the contours of competitive advantage in the industry and require a fundamental transformation of the standard business model. Arun and Katelyn will provide a brief insight into the future of service stations.

The value of loyalty in the convenience and fuel retail industry
Loyalty is probably one of the most popular topics of discussion in the industry right now. And for a good reason; compared to non-members, loyalty members are more likely to make an in-store purchase each time they fuel their vehicle. They also tend to spend more per store visit. The question is no longer about “if loyalty” is for this industry, but “how do we do it really well”.
Scott Wetzel, SVP Business Development, PDI Marketing Cloud Solutions provides his insights on the value around driving loyalty and how retailers can keep their stores running at peak performance while providing exceptional customer experiences.
