UKIFDA Show 2023: Conference Programme Confirmed

20th March 2023

Insightful conference programme confirmed for 2023 UKIFDA Show & Conference sponsored by Phillips 66.

Addressing some of the liquid fuel distribution industry’s main challenges, UKIFDA has confirmed the Conference Programme for the 2023 UKIFDA Show & Conference on 10th May 2023 at the CBS Arena, Coventry. 

Highlights include an industry-leading roundtable on the ongoing Future Fuels campaign and new for this year, a roundtable titled, The Future For Trucks. There will be speakers from HMRC and the new UK fuel theft taskforce, as well as some inspirational future thinking on recruitment.

UKIFDA Chief Executive Ken Cronin explains: “Our previous two conferences have concentrated on the future fuels’ agenda. Of course, renewable liquid fuels remain the hot topic for discussion but, following feedback from members and exhibitors, this year’s conference will also address several wider issues, including the learnings from key 2022 events like the red diesel changes and the increase in fuel thefts with discussion on what lies ahead.

“This year’s conference is an opportunity to enrich your knowledge and hear from our industry thought leaders to help everyone drive their businesses forward.”

Future fuels developments will be explored in a roundtable discussion with industry experts. Topics on the table include:

  • HVO demonstration project
  • New British Standard for sustainability and how the industry can use audit techniques
  • Feedstock availability
  • HVO status with the government and the general public
  • Commercial use of HVO

Besides future fuels, The Future for Trucks will be covered with advice on incoming truck technology from hydrogen and electric to bioenergy or hybrid and, most importantly, what distributors should choose and when.

Two industry-known recruitment experts will also be talking about how the sector can overcome the recruitment challenges in a world where employment is at an almost all-time high.

Speakers for the conference programme will be announced soon.
