New Faces and High Rankers Join the Fuel Distribution Forum
Nearly half of the Distributors already signed up to join the Fuel Distribution Forum in 2012 are new to the event. Now in its third year, Fuel Distribution Forum has gained traction and is fast becoming the strategic business forum, which brings fuel distributors and bulk transport groups together with a range of suppliers to the sector for a day-and-a-half of conference, one-to-one business meetings and informal networking.
New Distributors to the Forum so far include GB Oils, Wincanton, Texoil, Heltor, Crown Oil and Thomas Flynn & Sons. One newcomer who is keen to benefit from the event is John Mooney, General Manager at Texoil. He commented, "I look forward to a very worthwhile event in these difficult times in the oil distribution sector."
Amongst the new faces at the Forum are some high rankers from Fuel Oil News' recent league tables, including Wincanton (number 1 for logistics), GB Oils (number 1 in the UK), NWF Fuels (number 5 in the UK), Reynolds Logistics (number 6 for logistics), and Rix Petroleum (number 8 in the UK).
And it's not just the high rankers who are heading to the Algarve to strengthen and refine their businesses. New and progressive distribution companies looking to expand their business will also be there to take advantage of the high-level networking opportunities, and to capitalize on the cost-effective speed-meeting format, which allows them to meet with around 40 suppliers from across the lengvth and breadth of the UK in just one-and-a-half days. Trevor Rolph, Managing Director at Distribution company Monument Fuels said, "We're excited about the Forum. As a relatively small, new company, time is extremely precious to us, so we're hoping it'll be a good investment, and an important chance for us to get to meet a wide range of suppliers in one hit, ensuring we're getting the best for our business, and hopefully finding out about any new, innovative products."
Fuel Distribution Forum takes place on 20-21st June 2012 at the spectacular Tivoli Victoria Hotel, Algarve. To find out more about the event and attendance options, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s rare that we get the time to engage with so many buyers in such a short space of time, but the mix of formal meetings and informal meeting opportunities worked extremely well.
