World's Leading Tank Terminal Event Unveils its Plans
Nov 07, 2016

StocExpo Europe, the world’s leading international event for the tank terminal industry, returns to The Ahoy Rotterdam, on 28-30 March, after a year in Antwerp. The three-day conference and exhibition will bring together thousands of storage professionals from across the globe to network, learn, share knowledge and do business.

Nick Powell, StocExpo & Tank Storage Portfolio Event Director comments: “Not only is StocExpo Europe the largest event of its kind, but it is also perfectly placed in the ARA region, the world’s largest oil trading hub. In the last seven years, we have seen a 20 per cent increase in the region’s storage capacity, reinforcing its strategic importance to the international market, and making a show like ours more vital than ever.

“We have so much on offer this year - an expanded showfloor, more educational and practical talks from leading international experts as part of our revamped conference programme, and the first edition of the global Tank Storage Awards. Everywhere you look there will be an opportunity to learn more about the industry.”

Every year the StocExpo Europe conference programme brings together the top terminals, traders, oil majors and analysts from around the globe to hear expert sessions delivered in a theatre style. For 2017, in a change to the usual format, the conference will be in a round table format, with delegates grouped together so that they can better network and learn from each other. The in-depth roundtable sessions will be supplemented by expert panel debates.

Also new for 2017, StocExpo Europe will play host to the inaugural Tank Storage Awards, with winners being revealed during a gala dinner and awards ceremony following the conclusion of day two of the show. The panel of judges are a who’s who of leading authorities, from across the tank terminal spectrum, and includes the likes of Margit Blok, Global HSE Director at VTTI, Walter Wattenbergh, Group CEO at LBC Tank Terminals Group and Earl Crochet, Business Development Director at Kinder Morgan. Categories will range from Safety Excellence in Bulk Liquid Storage and The Best Port, through to the Most Invaluable Product Award.

In addition to an upgraded conference programme and the new Awards, StocExpo Europe also boasts a packed exhibition hall, showcasing the world's leading manufacturers and suppliers, with many using the show to launch or introduce new products to market.
