PetroForum UK 2020 Postponement & New Dates
In light of Covid-19, we believe the best course of action is to host both PetroForum UK and Europe together - on the new dates of 4-5 November. The event will be held at the Tivoli Marina in Vilamoura.
There are currently just too many unknowns with regards to travel and safety and we feel that by moving to November dates, we will have a better chance of delivering the standard of event you expect from OpenRoom.
Please get in touch with the team - firstname.lastname@example.org - if you have any questions or concerns about our new dates.
Hosting both leading UK independent forecourt groups and oil companies from across the continent, this year's event brings together a variety os stakeholders to the fuel retail industry.
Combining our two PetroForum events will minimise travel demands for the supplier community and make for a stronger event. It will also give fuel retailers the opportunity to meet with a more diverse range of innovative companies and solution providers.
The OpenRoom team are continually on the lookout for new innovations and perspectives to include – meaning this year’s event will play host to a unique collective of industry heavyweights and start-ups. Importantly, our unique one-to-one meeting format will lay at the heart of the agenda – connecting forecourt groups with top-tier suppliers to the industry.
- Network with your peers in a neutral environment.
- Differentiate: leverage information from multiple supplier meetings to increase buying power.
- Plan your itinerary to ensure that you meet with the suppliers that will help drive your business forward.

- Take the temperature on the market & learn from the leading minds in the industry.
