FPS EXPO 2013 – more visitors

Visitor numbers at this year’s FPS EXPO, where 98 exhibitors displayed the latest advances in oil distribution technology, were up 7% on last year.

“There was a real buzz about the place this year and that showed in the level of enquiries we received, as well as the general atmosphere we experienced,” reported Kiran Shaw, operations manager at IFC Inflow.

“It is our most important show of the year, we really enjoy attending and catching up with both customers and suppliers, old and new.

“FPS EXPO is a very focused show, targeted specifically to our customer base” said an Emco Wheaton spokesperson. “It offers an opportunity to showcase our latest developments to a large audience.”

New FPS president Mark Nolan addressed an audience of industry professionals at the awards dinner where John Bussell of Moorland Fuels took the coveted Driver of the Year award, sponsored by OAMPS Petrochemical. The runners up were Bob Cook of GB Oils and Mark Summerfield of Heltor.

Planning has already begun for the 34th FPS EXPO which will again be held in Harrogate on 9 & 10 April 2014. Many of this year’s exhibitors will be returning and 41% of the stand space has already been sold.
