Liquid Fuels Industry EXPO Moves To Glasgow In 2021

UKIFDA EXPO, the biggest event in the liquid fuels distribution industry’s calendar has announced this month that it is moving to The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow on 19 & 20 May  2021 and show organisers the UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association is planning a two year deal with the SEC.

UKIFDA EXPO has been at The Exhibition Centre Liverpool since 2016 and following feedback from the recent EXPO surveys, the UKIFDA team has spent time finding a venue that provides many of the benefits of Liverpool. These include excellent access for exhibitors and a venue close to amenities as well as venue that provides a flexible exhibition space that can accommodate fluctuating exhibitor profiles, at a cost that is beneficial for UKIFDA and the exhibitors.

Feedback also suggested that the EXPO should move around the UK and Ireland on a more regular basis, which is why this is only a two-year contract.

The base contract for 2021 is for 6,000sqm of exhibition space which is smaller than Liverpool. This means that all exhibitors at UKIFDA EXPO 2020 in Liverpool will have first refusal on space for 2021 ahead of the event being released for general sale.

UKIFDA Chief Executive Guy Pulham comments: “It is 20 years since EXPO was last in Scotland, so we are excited about taking UKIFDA EXPO to Glasgow and to the SEC. It will though be sad to say goodbye to Liverpool next year, so let’s make it a great event!”

UKIFDA Membership and Events Manager Dawn Shakespeare adds: “UKIFDA EXPO 2020 on 10 and 11 June will see the exhibition celebrate its 40th anniversary and already over 55% space has been sold. We are also finding that UKIFDA EXPO 2020 has received more interest this year from the renewable energy sector, associated component manufacturers and equipment suppliers to meet a new market of customers.

“There is a real buzz about the show already and with the added interest from the renewable energy sector I am sure it is going to make for a very exciting show as we celebrate its 40th anniversary. It is therefore fitting that we start the next decade at a new venue.”
