Hyatt Regency, Dubai | September 23-24, 2019

With the industry moving at pace towards new technologies and environmental change, it is now more critical than ever for fuel retailers from across the Middle East and North Africa to come together, exchange ideas and build strong business partnerships. PetroForum MENA – now in its 6th year – takes service station stakeholders to the thriving metropolis of Dubai to inspire business chemistry and engage with industry developments.

Inviting top-level directors and managers from oil companies across the region, the event encourages face-to-face discussion with globally recognised suppliers in fuel and c-store equipment and technology. The two days stimulate lasting partnerships and identify new opportunities to build resilient businesses.
