New features for UNITI expo 2020

UNITI expo 2018 saw the installation of the first “Alternative Fuels Pavilion,” the release noted, and in an effort to stay ahead of the times, UNITI expo 2020 will expand this concept in space and number of participating companies.

Ongoing conversations in the European Union, a growing environmental awareness from society and the will to invest in new technologies from major oil companies will only make the market share of alternative fuels grow, the release stated.

In the carwash area, UNITI expo expects a higher number of European and international carwash operators to be present at the show, both from the petrol station and professional carwash businesses, the release continued.

In 2018, a number of major carwash players chose UNITI expo as the platform to unveil their new tunnel washes for the first time, the release noted.

Leading manufacturers in the sector, such as Christ Wash Systems, WashTec, Holz, DICO and Schleicher, continue to support UNITI expo as the leading trade fair for the professional carwash business in Europe, the release added.

More international and European visitors are expected in the “Shop & Convenience” themed area, which continues to grow with every new edition of the show, the release added.

In addition to inviting all major European brands to the show, there will be a themed pavilion titled “Franchise & Co-Branding” — a space tailor-made for franchises to interact with oil companies and retailers from across the globe, the release stated.

The diverse approaches of retailers in Europe make the platform incredibly useful and interesting to learn about different business models, the release concluded.
