Book Now: Less Than One Week Until ACS’ Power, Mobility and Convenience Conference!

There’s just less than one week until this year’s Power, Mobility and Convenience Conference, taking place online on 5th July from 10:00am.

This year’s conference will explore how the UK’s 7,000+ forecourts can adapt and change in the future on the road to Net Zero, as well as looking at new and emerging store formats. With the growth of the electric vehicle market challenging the traditional forecourt model, more retailers are looking to innovate to stay relevant to a demanding modern consumer.

The PMC conference will give an inside look at where leading retailers are investing, both on the forecourt and in the store to provide the right range of fuel and power options, products and services for their communities.

Speaking at this year’s conference will be a host of industry experts who will provide new insights into the future of power and convenience, not just for those interested in the forecourt market but also anyone in the wider retail sector.

Our speakers and panellists include:

  • Guy Bickerstaffe, Group Director of Development, EG Group
  • Stephen Gale, Sales Development Director, Blakemore Retail
  • Ed Birkett, Head of Energy & Climate, Onward
  • JB Merkel, Manager, Mobility Electrification Connectivity and Autonomous Driving, Kia Motors UK
  • Paul Young, UK Mobility Engineering Manager, Shell
  • Andrew Miller, UK & NI Sales Director, Costa Express
  • Charlotte Dant, Store Manager, Gill Marsh Forecourts
  • Sabine Benoit, Professor of Marketing, Surrey Business School
  • Ed Woodall, Government Relations Director, ACS
  • Chris Noice, Communications Director, ACS

ACS chief executive James Lowman said: “We are excited to have a fantastic line-up of speakers for this year’s Power, Mobility and Convenience Conference who will be able to guide us through a packed agenda which will explore where the forecourt sector is now and how retailers can adapt to ensure that they keep up with the latest developments. I would urge everyone from across the industry with an interest in fuel retailing and the wider sector to book their place now.”

Figures from the 2021 Forecourt Report show that UK forecourts currently provide over 88,000 local jobs, with three quarters of forecourt retailers (76%) engaging in their communities over the last year.

The latest figures from Zap-Map show that there are now over 30,000 electric charging points at almost 20,000 locations, including petrol forecourts and convenience stores – three times the number that there were in 2018.
