FPS Expo defies the Recession

28th October 2009

FPS Expo, the UK's largest oil distribution industry event, is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2010 and it will once again provide a platform for industry professionals to address the key issues facing their business and the industry as a whole. 

Taking place from 21-22 April 2010 at the Harrogate International Centre, FPS Expo 2010 is organised by the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS) and its 30th anniversary year is already proving popular with over 80% of exhibition space already booked.  Visitors to the exhibition will see exhibitors like tanker manufacturers MAN Truck & Bus UK Ltd and Scania alongside new exhibitors Cameron Forecourt, Nixon Jettas and Paul Reid Consultants together with show regulars Alfons Haar, Central Welding, The Environment Agency, Harlequin Oil Tanks, Mechtronic, OAMPS UK Ltd and William Tanker Services to name but a few.

The recession and cost savings will no doubt dominate the agenda for those attending the exhibition, but visitors will be able to see various innovative features from industry renowned exhibitors demonstrating the latest technological developments.  There will also be an exciting programme of free informative workshops covering current legislation and legal issues.   To end the event in style the FPS will be hosting their annual Awards Dinner with industry awards presented to The Driver of The Year, Young Employee of the Year and Depot of the Year.

Speaking to OilFiredUp.com, Vanessa Cook, FPS Marketing and Events Manager said "2010 is a special year for FPS EXPO as we are celebrating 30 years of success for the exhibition and we are set to expand and build on our previous success. This year's show has over 60 confirmed exhibitors; an unprecedented level of workshop content, as well as 100's of new products on display.  The industry has really come out fighting and despite the economic difficulties the event promises to be a great success.   We have focussed on expanding the visitor experience and are confident that everyone will leave the event feeling completely up-to-date with industry developments but most importantly, solutions that can be applied to their own businesses."
