Germany’s Federal Minister becomes patron of UNITI expo

Peter Altmaier, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, is patron of UNITI expo 2020

With Peter Altmaier, the German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy as patron, UNITI expo 2020 will celebrate its fourth edition on 26 – 28 May at the Landesmesse Stuttgart in Germany. The support from the political sphere underlines the importance that the German government attaches to UNITI expo as the leading trade fair for the retail petroleum and car wash industries.

As Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Peter Altmaier is equally committed to global climate protection and a secure energy supply. UNITI expo, as the world's leading technology fair for the retail petroleum sector, offers a comprehensive outlook on the future of the industry. This includes the transformation of the petrol station into an all-round mobility supplier, the digitalization of the sector and the use of modern, sustainable fuels. A dedicated themed pavilion for Alternative fuels will showcase the present and future sources of energy for the transport sector – from biofuels to electro-mobility, from hydrogen to synthetic fuels, a promising source known as e-fuels. The conference program will also take a look into the future with presentations on global trends, digitisation and sustainability.

“We are very pleased to have won over Economics Minister Peter Altmaier as patron for our trade fair. The support is of great importance, especially when looking at the challenge of the energy transition and path towards establishing a climate and environmentally friendly mobility system,” says Elmar Kühn, Managing Director of UNITI-Kraftstoff GmbH, organizer of the trade fair.

“The successful trade fair concept with its varied programme, outstanding presentations and the amount of exhibitors plays a key role in the development of the industry,” says Bruno Boroewitsch, responsible for the organisation of the fair. Trade visitors from all over the world can discover the latest concepts and technologies at UNITI expo. All major players in retail petroleum and car wash industries are represented at UNITI expo and offer professionals the ideal platform to exchange information on current developments and innovations and to make valuable contacts. UNITI expo paves the way for new partnerships on an international level.

“The Minister's participation is not only a great pleasure and confirmation for us as organisers, it also constitutes an incentive to consistently develop the trade fair further and to continue to promote the close dialogue with business and politics,” confirms Elmar Kühn.
