UKIFDA Launches EXPO 2024 at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre


Trade association and EXPO 2024 event organiser, the UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA), has revealed ‘Working Together in Changing Times’ is the theme for its industry-leading EXPO 2024 event, which will take place on 10-11 April 2024 at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre.

Bringing together the whole liquid fuel distribution industry supply chain, the two-day event will combine four forums – the Exhibition, the Future Opportunities Conference as well as the popular Awards Dinner and Drinks Reception. EXPO 2024 promises industry innovation, leading speakers, and plenty of networking. All are supported by the Event app WHOVA, which allows delegates to stay up to date before, during and for a limited time after the event.

UKIFDA CEO Ken Cronin explains: “We want people to walk away from EXPO 2024 feeling empowered by their visit. It’s a chance to accelerate supply chain relationships, identify and maximise new business opportunities and help solve the inevitable commercial challenges that come with these changing times. It’s rare to be able to access so much industry innovation under one roof.”

The headline sponsor has been confirmed as Phillips 66, and Rupert Turner, Managing Director UK Marketing, commented: “UKIFDA EXPO is a celebration of excellence that sits at the heart of the distribution industry and at Phillips 66 Limited we are delighted to once again be the headline sponsor. Each year this unique event provides an opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate an industry we care deeply about. A chance to spend time with colleagues, forge new relationships and connect with customers. We look forward to working with UKIFDA EXPO and welcoming everyone to Liverpool in 2024.”

Building on the broader topic format introduced at the successful one-day 2023 event, the 2024 Future Opportunities Conference Programme will explore the new commercial horizon and offer guidance and insight to help businesses future proof.

With a compelling mix of leading experts, the speaker line-up will include the latest in future fuels, transport technology and data developments, as well as industry best practice and legislative updates complemented with market intelligence – welcoming audience participation too.

Working together as an industry is what’s delivering progress. EXPO 2024 is the place to stay ahead of the curve, embrace the shift and collaborate for business resilience in these changing times.

With a number of exhibitors already confirmed, UKIFDA’s event organiser Dawn Shakespeare advises: “This year’s flexible exhibition space includes small, medium and large space options to meet different objective and budget needs – we want to make sure everyone’s requirements are met.”

There are further sponsor opportunities available for interested parties, and the Awards Dinner guest speaker will be announced soon.
