Fuel Retailers Conference 2017

Driving change and innovation

The FRA Conference held two years at Automechanika saw 500 delegates gather from all over the country to network and exchange ideas on the theme of ‘Equipping for Change’. This year’s conference, to be held on the 27th & 28th September within the Automechanika Show at Expo Centre, Nasrec makes the call for ‘Unity in Action’. The conference will feature not only top industry leaders showing us the way forward but will also platform successful operators and franchisees in panel discussions sharing their successes and challenges.

Diarise the 27th and 28th September and be sure to be part of the action – look out for our call to action through regular FRA newsletters and those who require travel and accommodation, look at the pricelist below and booking request form.
