UNITI expo 2022 in figures

After a long break imposed by COVID-19, the leading European trade fair for the retail petroleum and carwash industries could celebrate its fourth edition. UNITI expo 2022 took place May 17-19 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre.

The unique trade fair spread across an exhibition area of 40,000 m². With 431 exhibitors from 37 countriesand more than 16,000 participants from 100 countries, UNITI expo once again offered the perfect platform for service station, carwash and convenience enthusiasts.

With visitors from 100 countries (around 50% of the total are international) and exhibitors from 37 countries, UNITI expo has become by far the world's most international trade fair for the sector.

The integration of subject-specific forums directly into the exhibition halls was particularly popular with visitors and exhibitors alike. Three forums – International Forum, Carwash Forum and UNITI expo Forum – gave all participants the opportunity to gain interesting and innovative insights in numerous lectures and presentations on the latest trends and issues in the industry.

"Since the first UNITI expo a few years ago, we as visitors are big fans of this fair! Therefore, we decided to come here for the first time with our own booth and the organization is perfect! This gives us the opportunity to concentrate on what is really important, our guests and interlocutors and we have them in large numbers! We are now after one and a half days really excited about the reception. I think many people have been waiting for the opportunity to meet in person again and this UNITI expo provides an excellent framework for that." (translated to English)
