ACAPMA has teamed up with Convenience World magazine, expanding its authority to the wider petroleum and convenience markets.

The Australasian Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association (ACAPMA) is the peak industry association representing the interests of the majority of businesses that comprise the downstream petroleum sector in Australia.

Membership of the association ranges from large corporations to small, family-owned businesses including fuel wholesalers, fuel distributors, fuel retailers, petroleum contractors and petroleum equipment suppliers.

“The new partnership with Convenience World magazine means that the industry will now have ready access to a single trade publication that combines comprehensive information on all matters affecting both the convenience and petroleum side of a typical service station business, said ACAPMA CEO Mark McKenzie.

“Following a decision by the ACAPMA Board to replace our dedicated hardcopy magazine with a weekly electronic newsletter (www.acapmag.com.au), we were seeking to continue a trade magazine presence via the partnership with a highly credible industry publication – and Convenience World, with its fresh format and substantial industry readership, was the obvious partner”, said a delighted Mark McKenzie

Under the new arrangements, senior members of the ACAPMA Secretariat will prepare a dedicated ‘ACAPMA Petroleum Industry Report’ within Convenience World magazine to keep all Convenience World readers up to date with critical news and insights pertinent to the downstream fuel industry in Australia.

The arrangement also benefits ACAPMA members by providing all members with access to discounted advertising rates in a truly authoritative industry publication.

“As ACAPMA expands its reach into the SE Asian markets via the conduct of the inaugural 2016 Asia Pacific Fuel Industry Forum in Singapore (September 2016), the partnership with Convenience World provides a valuable mechanism for promoting industry awareness of this important development”, said Mark.

An equally enthusiastic Convenience World Editor, Lorna Gloria, says the magazine is privileged to collaborate with “this leading and esteemed industry association”.

“ACAPMA has been there for the businesses that operate in the downstream petroleum industry for 40 years and is widely recognised by stakeholders as a leading industry authority as a result of an impressive history in the areas of advocacy, employment and training services, information and events,” she said.

“ACAPMA has identified significant opportunities for its growing member base and has positive changes ahead for the Australasian markets.”

Convenience World is an influential and respected trade publication for the petrol and convenience markets. Convenience World continues to grow and innovate in response to the trends and demands of its readers, having recently launched its new and interactive digital sites and platforms.

Convenience World looks forward to a dynamic and fruitful partnership with ACAPMA with benefits for both organisations.
