The most important trade event for those involved in the distribution of liquid fuels is returning to the Exhibition Centre Liverpool on 27th and 28th April 2022 – and is selling out fast.
Organiser the UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA) holds UKFIDA EXPO every year but says the 2022 exhibition is expected to be the best one to-date as it returns to a physical event for the first time since 2019 due to the Covid pandemic – and urges companies to book their space before it’s too late.
“Exhibition space is selling out so fast and already more than half the space is taken – this is incredible as we only launched a few weeks ago!” says Ken Cronin, UKIFDA Chief Executive.
“We’re absolutely thrilled by how many companies have booked for UKIFDA EXPO 2022 so far and feel incredibly excited about being back and hosting a physical event in Liverpool once again, with all the benefits and opportunities this provides – but would encourage companies to book their stand space sooner rather than later to avoid missing out.
“In 2021, UKIFDA EXPO was held as a virtual event and was hugely successful. We had more than 50 exhibitors and 700 delegates attend the packed two days of a virtual exhibition and conference sessions – and the fact we had such a great online event really highlighted the importance of UKIFDA EXPO to the industry.
“However, given we already have more than 50 exhibitors lined up for UKIFDA EXPO 2022, we know that everyone involved in the industry wants to be back at the physical exhibition – as do we – and the event is set to be bigger and better than ever before.”
Representatives from across the industry attend UKIFDA EXPO events, including from leading distributors, manufacturers, software firms and equipment suppliers.
“Phillips 66 Limited is the headline sponsor which is fantastic as the company has been a big part of our history and we’ve worked closely with them for years. Many tanker manufacturers are exhibiting at the show once more and we love to see firms like Magyar, RTN, Cobo, Nursan and Williams joining us in 2022.
“We are lucky enough to have exhibitors return year-on-year, including Alfons Haar, Carbery Plastics, Collins Youldon, Eliminox, Greenergy, Harvest Energy, Mechtronic, Meller Flow Trans Ltd, OilShield, OAMPS, Scully and Touchstar Technologies to name but a few – as well as first-time exhibitors that include EW Fuel Management Ltd, Commercial Fuel Solutions Ltd, Nursan Trailer, and Road Tankers Armagh Ltd,” added Ken.
Dawn Shakespeare, UKIFDA Membership and Events Manager, comments: “Next year’s event will be our 42nd EXPO and it’s lovely to see industry enthusiasm for the exhibition growing every year.
“We cannot wait to be back in Liverpool for the event which will also feature the future fuels conference, reunion dinner and awards ceremony too. Exhibitors will be displaying the latest technology innovations and products within the industry, and there will be excellent networking opportunities throughout the two days as key industry experts will be at the show.
“Any company thinking about booking a stand at EXPO 2022 should do so quickly to avoid missing out on what promises to be the most spectacular and rewarding industry event ever.”
