UNITI expo, the leading European trade fair for the fuel retailing and car wash industries, has announced a 20% increase in exhibition space for its 2018 edition, taking place on May 15 – 17 in Stuttgart, Germany. The biennial event, with its compact three-day format, offers professionals the chance to meet and interact in an international environment.

International exhibitors will present their latest products and innovations across 40,000 m2 of exhibition space at UNITI expo 2018. This year the trade show will be placing a special focus on alternative fuels, exploring the development of hydrogen technology, e-fuels, natural gas-based formulas and e-mobility, by exhibiting the latest concepts and technologies and dedicating one whole conference day to the subject. The organisers also announce a high increase in exhibitors and space dedicated to the professional carwash sector.

“We´ve grown from 25,000 m2 of exhibition space in 2014, 35,000 m2 in 2016, and in 2018 exhibitors from around the world will showcase their innovations and products across 40,000 m2 in the state-ofthe-art Stuttgart Messe,” says Bruno Boroewitsch, CEO of com-a-tec and the co-organizer of UNITI expo.

Across the three different forums, a selection of industry experts will explore the current state of the market, key trends and future challenges.

The exhibition incorporates all areas of interest for operators of service stations and carwash businesses: fuel technology, fuel logistics, site construction, payment and automation, carwash and car care, and shop and convenience. With its two previous editions, UNITI expo has become the most international trade fair in the industry.

“There is a high level of decision makers from all major fuel retailers, oil companies and carwash operators, while several delegations from across the globe are expected,” explains Boroewitsch.

The organizers believe they will easily surpass the figures of UNITI 2016, when the event gathered 425 exhibitors from 36 countries and more than 15,000 attendees from over 110 countries.

For many professionals, the event has become the must-attend show of the year due to its innovative character, well-structured program and high quality of exhibitors.

The exhibition and the conferences can be attended for free. Registration for industry professionals is now open on the UNITI expo website.
