Oil&nonoil 2016 - a mirror of changes
In the wake of the success of the previous fair, held in October 2015 in Rome, the organizers are willing to to offer an event capable of meeting their business expectations even more effectively.
The fair, aimed at the entire fuel distribution pipeline, looks at the technologies, professionals and prospects of each segment and highlights new opportunities related to the mobility of goods and people and the increasing role being played by alternative fuels. From the depots to the service stations, each stage in the process demands new solutions to boost competitiveness and increase safety and customer satisfaction.
Fuel retail network operators (large and small) are becoming stronger, managing their businesses in a dynamic fashion and gaining leverage from flexible instruments, adapting them to their specific market areas; meanwhile, the fuel retail and non-retail networks are drawing closer together with the result that the differences between the various operators driving this industry are becoming less marked. Although car wash facilities and bars continue to be the main non-oil sources of income within the Italian system, it is also possible to find other profitable businesses (tyre repair, launderettes, etc.).
In the month since it was announced, the event has met with an enthusiastic response from exhibitors: already, 40 companies (that is to say 40% of the total present at the previous fair) have reserved a stand. The most immediate response has come from the operators from the segment that serves service stations (suppliers of petrol pumps, fuel tanks, signs and lighting, as well as building companies).
O&NO will be organizing special initiatives for the various visitor targets. Tuesday 11 October will be the day devoted to car wash facilities and operators, Wednesday 12 will revolve around an analysis of the fuel retail network and its leading players; while finally, on Thursday 13, the focus will be alternative fuels and the scenarios that will characterize mobility in the future.
Naturally, throughout the three days of the fair, the exhibition and meetings will also be of interest to the entire pipeline. Each day there will be workshops and seminars devoted to the various professional operators and, above all, every effort will be made to bring out the transversal nature of the issues dealt with.
