McLean Events, organisers of the international business meeting forum erpec and OpenRoom Events, operators of the worldwide series of industry B to B events, PetroForum, will be working together on several aspects of a new event for Europe, scheduled for Spring 2019 in Sitges Spain
Launched a few months ago by OpenRoom, PetroForum Europe takes place on 13-14th May next year and will bring together oil companies and retailers alongside key industry suppliers of retail forecourt equipment and retail solutions for 2 days of meetings, seminars and informal business networking]
McLean Events has for the last 20 years successfully gathered the European retailing industry together every two years through its meetings concept erpec, which in turn has led to establishing key international industry publications, erpecnews, ENTV and erpecnewslive.com
Specifically, McLean Events will be working with the MOC’s and major fuel retailers in all European countries to help promote PetroForum Europe to senior figures involved in retail operations. For PetroForum Europe this will also include working alongside retail operations having a particular focus on the forecourt shop aspects of the business
Fiona Horan, Director of Open Room Events said, “erpec has delivered an amazing industry platform for the industry since 1997 and we feel working with Nick and his team to help harness all the goodwill that erpec has built up over the years is without doubt a great help when trying to launch our new PetroForum event in Europe. We look forward to hopefully welcoming many erpec delegates to PetroForum Europe and meeting them in person to in Sitges next May"
Following this announcement and in the interests of creating a clear path to PetroForum Europe next May, the next idac conference will now be staged on 26-27 November 2019.
