bringing business to business
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.
- Network with your peers in a neutral environment.
- Differentiate: leverage information from multiple supplier meetings to increase buying power.
