The first PetroForum for Europe launches on May 13th-14th 2019 and joins OpenRoom’s international portfolio of fuel retail events which boasts a long history of success dating back 14 years.

Designed for oil company retail engineering and procurement teams, fuel retailers and suppliers of equipment and services, PetroForum Europe is invitation-only, with a careful selection process to ensure that solutions match needs.  At the heart of the event is OpenRoom’s signature format of one-to-one meetings, a time-effective way for people and businesses to connect, build relationships, identify opportunities and explore new products and new technologies.

This exciting new addition takes place at the Dolce Sitges, on the shores of the Mediterranean, just minutes from Barcelona Airport and Barcelona city centre.
