FPS EXPO 2019, dedicated to the liquid fuels distribution industry and its suppliers, takes place in Liverpool on 15/16 May and this year’s exhibition marks the start of 40th anniversary celebrations for EXPO organisers, the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS).

Following a successful show last year, FPS EXPO will again take place at the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool, giving the added bonus of having all exhibitors in one exhibition hall and under one roof, with a total exhibition floorspace of over 8,100sq.m and with three months to go, over 75% of the available floorspace was booked.

This annual event continues to receive serious commitment from major suppliers, including long term exhibitors MAN Truck & Bus Ltd and Elaflex alongside Valero, Phillips 66 Ltd, Cobo UK, Williams Tanker Services Ltd, TankQuip and first time exhibitors Dipetane International Ltd, The Oil Recycling Association and Miles Macadam. In total FPS EXPO 2019 sees 16 companies exhibiting for the first time.

This year FPS has broadened the scope of the EXPO in line with the changes in the industry and are including other relevant trade associations, dedicating an area for the use of OFTEC and The Oil Recycling Association (ORA) and their members. There is also an area focusing on renewables (including bio kerosene) giving fuel distributors an opportunity to look at how they can future proof their businesses in a forthcoming decarbonised era.
