FPS2016 Gets Set For Liverpool

As excitement and anticipation builds for FPS EXPO 2016, which takes place in Liverpool on 20/21 April next year, the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS) is urging industry professionals not to miss out.

FPS EXPO 2016, being held at the new Liverpool Exhibition Centre for the first time, is set to be the biggest exhibition in the event’s history, with even more exhibitors and visitors than in previous years. Among the exhibitors already booked for the event are MAN Truck and Bus UK Ltd, The Oil Market Journal, Vopak UK, RTN, Phillips 66, Mabanaft Ltd and Ireland Marketing and first time exhibitors include Progressive Engineering (AUL Ltd), TIP Trailer services UK Ltd, Lomosoft GmbH, Ancorra Environmental Services and Contaminated Fuel Conditioning Services Ltd.

“It speaks volumes that FPS EXPO 2016 is more than seven months away and already has a diverse range of exhibitors booked for the two-day event,” says Dawn Shakespeare, Marketing and Events Manager for the FPS, and organiser of the exhibition.

“The new venue and new city are undoubtedly creating a buzz and generating a great deal of interest in the industry event. The Liverpool Exhibition Centre is a brand new venue for us and for the city – it is due to open this September and when it does it will provide the ideal space for exhibitors wanting to showcase state-of-the-art oil distribution technology.”

During the event on 20 and 21 April 2016, manufacturing companies as well as suppliers, distributors and technology firms from the UK and across Europe will exhibit the latest products and services that include storage tank solutions and accessories, support services, and modern developments in computer technology.

Experts from the UK, Europe and as far afield as the USA will be visiting, providing excellent networking opportunities for exhibitors and visitors alike as well as a great opportunity to discover what’s new in the industry and experience cutting-edge technology in its infancy.

The largest event in the UK and Republic of Ireland dedicated to the oil heating distribution and fuel oil industry, FPS EXPO has been growing in popularity over the past 35 years, since its launch in 1980.

“We hope to build on the success of our most recent exhibition, in 2015 in Harrogate, which featured more than 110 exhibitors and 1,600 visitors, a 20% increase in visitor numbers compared to 2014,” Dawn Shakespeare comments. There will be more than 150 exhibitors at FPS EXPO 2016, with some companies having reserved their space by rebooking during our 2015 exhibition!”

This annual event for industry professionals was heavily praised for its 2015 exhibition, with exhibitors citing the excellent opportunities to network, engage with new and existing clients, secure business and meet decision-makers, as major reasons for wanting to attend again.

Martin Cook, Mabanaft’s Marketing Manager, said, “FPS is a key event in Mabanaft’s marketing calendar. We see it as an excellent opportunity to meet with our existing clients and suppliers and to be in front of new prospects.”

“With plenty of new features promised for next year, FPS EXPO 2016 is set to be our biggest and best exhibition to-date,” adds Dawn Shakespeare. “We have a brand new venue in a brand new location, which is an ideal setting for companies and individuals who supply the oil heating and fuel industry to showcase their newest products and services.”
