StocExpo Europe 2019 is set to be an extra special one as the event celebrates 15 years of being the market leading conference & exhibition in the sector.
And to celebrate the event is launching even more initiatives. For the first time, the 2019 edition will incorporate a hosted buyer scheme, bring in terminal operators from across the globe.
Also new for 2019 is fact that the conference will be held within the exhibition hall.
Nick Powell, StocExpo & Tank Storage divisional director, explains: 'We've invested more than ever into the 2019 edition of StocExpo Europe.
'In tough market conditions, it's crucial that companies find new customers, spend time with existing clients & seek out new ways to stay ahead of the competition. StocExpo Europe allows people do all this in the most time-effective way possible.
'By having a custom-built conference room on the show floor, we can maximise the amount of time conference delegates have to explore the exhibition.
'The event is 100% dedicated to the tank storage sector so exhibitors and visitors know immediately that everyone in that room is relevant to them.'
Additionally, in 2019 shuttle buses will run to StocExpo Europe from Antwerp. 'We understand that every day work sometimes gets in the way of attending an exhibition,' Powell explains. 'So regular shuttle buses will make it as easy as possible for terminal professionals in Antwerp to attend the event.'
Other initiatives returning for 2019 include the complimentary EEMUA workshop, late night opening, breakfast seminars, complimentary iTanks Innovation in Storage sessions, the start-up zone and the Global Tank Storage Awards.
StocExpo Europe will celebrate its 15th birthday during the late-night opening on day two of the show. 'We are really looking forward to celebrating with all our loyal partners and supporters.
'By keeping the exhibition open later, we are able to welcome additional visitors who would usually be working during the day.
Powell adds: 'But perhaps the biggest celebration will be with our key exhibitors, many of whom have exhibited with us from the beginning.
'Some of the exhibitors, the likes of: Protego, HMT, Emerson, Endress + Hauser, J de Jonge, Rotork, Toptech, Silverwing, Axflow, Scully, Vacono, Rosen, Emco Wheaton, Oreco, WLT, Protectoseal, Agidens, OPW, CTS, Verwater, to name a few, have been here since the very first event and have absolutely been instrumental in helping us shape and grow such a great industry event'.
