The upcoming event is being held at the Hyatt Regency in Dubai, September 23rd – 24th, and brings together leading independents, NOCs and MOCs in the fuel retail sector with innovative suppliers for two days of networking, pre-arranged meetings and conference sessions. PetroForum MENA is supported by Oil Company Partner, ENOC, as well as media partner, PetrolPlaza.

Representation at the event is diverse, with companies from 20 nations in attendance, together accounting for over 50,000 service stations. Entry criteria for the event is strict – only companies with ambitious growth and development plans qualify. Kurt Dillen of Platinum Partner, DFS, says “Our support is predicated upon OpenRoom’s impressive track record. We have every confidence they will deliver a first-rate event with a guaranteed ROI”.

Aside from the one-to-one meetings, the event is expecting a large draw as a consequence of its impressive line-up of conference speakers. Zaid Alqufaidi, MD, ENOC Retail will discuss ENOC’s exciting new partnership with Microsoft and their joint venture into producing the world’s first AI driven service station. CEO of Oman Oil Marketing Company, David Kalife, will speak on the company’s vision of the green station of the future. In addition to these formal conference sessions, shorter talks designed to inspire creativity in business development, will be delivered by Robert Onion, CEO, Circle Brands and Ani Dave, Founder & MD, CX Uniform, respectively.

Retailers will discover innovative new solutions from suppliers who are using PetroForum MENA as a launchpad into the Middle Eastern Market. Coffee Partner, Franke Coffee Systems will showcase their flagship A1000 self-service coffee machine. Technology Partner, DT360 - a digital transformation company – will seek to enable organisations to achieve a world-class digital supply chain, enriched digital experiences and cognitive analytics for enhanced operations and maintenance. These suppliers are joined by over 30 others, including the Middle East’s largest signage company, Joseph Group, who are supporting the event as Signage Partner.

Throughout its 16 years in business, OpenRoom has always focused on securing the right delegates for its events. It’s a strategy that’s enabled the company to grow from one event in one sector to over 20 different events in multiple geographies covering oil and gas, retail, leisure and healthcare.
