StocExpo Europe, the industry’s leading event for the tank terminal industry, returns to Rotterdam in March 2018, stronger than ever.
Leading the market for nearly 15 years and boasting 200+ exhibitors, the three-day event has confirmed several new initiatives for 2018 including the Engineers of the Future zone, the Innovation in Storage showcase and a special seminar programme presented by EEMUA.
Day one will welcome a series of workshops on the show floor from The Engineering Equipment and Materials Users Association (EEMUA). These will cover a range of topics, from updates to the industry standard EEMUA 159, to ways to make tank storage safer through inspection, validation and maintenance techniques.
On day two, the Innovation in Storage showcase will be hosted by iTanks, a Netherlands-based knowledge and innovation platform for the tank storage sector. A series of inspiring presentations, covering topics ranging from the Future of Robotics to Sustainability, will be entirely free of charge for all StocExpo Europe attendees.
Running parallel to this will be a Start Up Zone allowing new entrants to the tank storage sector the opportunity to exhibit at a special introductory rate.
For day three, the ‘Engineers of the Future’ session is all new, and specifically designed to solve the problem of the ageing workforce. StocExpo Europe will invite the highest calibre students from local engineering & technology universities to hear first-hand how a career in tank storage can offer a multitude of benefits.
Alongside these new features, StocExpo will be hosting its widely recognised 3-day high level conference programme. Key speakers include Alfons Kuylen, Senior Safety Advisor Operations, Gunvor Petroleum Antwerp; Sally Martin, Vice President of HSSE for Downstream Operations, Shell; Christopher Beale, Process Safety Expert, BASF and Jaap Koomen, General Manager, Burgan Cape Terminals.
StocExpo Europe will be held in Rotterdam on 20-22nd March. Following day one of the event will be the 2nd edition of the Global Tank Storage Awards. For more information and to register to exhibit or attend please visit www.stocexpo.com or contact event director Nick Powell on +44 (0)20 3196 4301.
