|Oil&nonoil-S&TC Fuel Storage & Transport: The whole fuel world under one roof
The 5th edition of Oil&nonoil-S&TC Fuel Storage & Transport is the biennial trade show dedicated to filling service stations, carwash, alternative fuels and fuel storage and transport (next edition Verona, Spring 2012)
Every edition has attracted a growing number of exhibitors and visitors, drawn to the only event in Europe that brings together supply and demand for the entire sector from fuel depots and tanker trucks, right up to service station construction and equipment, and beyond, to the non-oil businesses of coffee, convenience shops, laundromats and of course, the carwash. The whole fuel world together under one roof.
The fair has grown so considerably and steadily since its first edition in that it can fly the flag as Europe’s foremost event in Europe for the fuel distribution chain and the nonoil activities.
The event program is always rich in meetings, seminars, workshops and special events.
The key goals of Oil&nonoil – S&TC are Business, Networking, Discussion and Education. It is a ‘must be there’ event.
THE INDUSTRIES THAT MAKE UP OIL&NONOIL-S&TC
Carwash and car care are 50% of the Oil&nonoil Show. Italy is a world carwash leader. Everybody who is anybody in the carwash sector either exhibits or visits. Carwashes are becoming an investment opportunity even for people outside the sector. The American International Carwash Association (ICA) and Federlavaggi are Oil&nonoil sponsors.
All the latest technology, products and services are on show – everything that makes carwashes efficient, environmentally friendly and compliant with the constantly upgraded international regulations are at Oil&nonoil. New detergents, new water treatment systems, more economical washing systems – they are all there. Saving water means more profits and a greener profile.
NON-OIL is not only carwash. The non-oil segment is completed by other product categories such as vending machine, automatic laundry services, bar and minimarkets.
Service Station Construction and Equipment are the heart of Oil&nonoil. From maintenance to environmental services, pumps, vapour recovery payment systems, forecourt design, video surveillance and much more.
The exhibition rides a moment of great change for the sector. With declining fuel sales services station activities absolutely must be modernized and diversified to remain profitable.
And now with the new government in Italy, it really looks like the restrictive system of quota licensing of many commercial activities will finally be broken up and this will create new lucrative opportunities for the 23,000 service station operators throughout Italy.
Alternative fuels. Oil&nonoil-S&TC is the only one-stop appointment in Italy for all alternative fuels. There are many hyper-specialized events in one fuel or another but Oil&nonoil is the only place where the entire range of fuel technologies is on display. The Italian market has long favoured world-leading innovation in lpg and natural gas fuel technologies.
Oil&nonoil-S&TC seminars and meetings dedicated to alternative fuels are always full to overflowing so be sure to get there early. Special attention in 2012 will be given to natural gas in all its variations (gas, liquid and bio) and not only.
Fuel transport and storage (S&TC) will showcase the technology and solutions from the loading at the depot to the unloading at the service station: manufacturers of tanker trucks, tanks, measurement systems, safety and detection instrumentation, loading and unloading technology. S&TC, launched in 2010, is the only national event dedicated to the strategically critical sector of fuel logistics.
