After launching PetroForum Europe last year to universal acclaim, this year’s event once again looks to host the region’s top oil companies and fuel retailers to come together with globally recognised suppliers for two days of hyper-efficient networking.

The only event to combine focuses on all three areas of a service station – the forecourt, shop and cloud – we purposefully seek out a blend of supplier perspectives to create a holistic industry pit-stop for oil company executives. You can expect to see everything from emerging technologies, innovations in engineering, and sophisticated brand partners.

The focus of this year’s event? A deep dive in to what service stations will have to do to overcome obstacles posed by on-going disruptions in consumer mobility. With the onset of shared mobility, future fuelling and last-mile delivery having industry-critical implications, it’s important for business leaders to reconsider their businesses from the ground up.

Whilst we’ll be challenging long-held assumptions in our conference, OpenRoom’s signature format of one-to-one speed meetings – connecting suppliers with oil companies using our personalised matching algorithm – will supercharge your business potential in just two days.

The Future is here: the $10,000 Staff-less Corner Store, Live in Shanghai

Tomas Mazetti is the founder of Moby Mart, a hyped staffless corner-store that has featured extensively in global media during 2018-2019. Before Moby, Tomas had a long history of running tech startups like Wheelys Café, an app-powered café on wheels that was sold to over 80 countries! When Tomas isn't running his companies or building AI-powered stocking solutions, he likes to read medieval poetry and fly experimental aircrafts. At PetroForum Europe, he will share some secrets on how to launch new tech faster than the giants, and the future of small retail.
