Essential insights into the most effective ways for fuel retailers to succeed in a competitive market will be the prevailing theme at this year’s Forecourt Seminar, which takes place on July 4 at the King Power Stadium in Leicester.

The event is co-hosted by the Association of Convenience Stores and the Petrol Retailer’s Association and will feature former Forecourt Trader of the Year Patrick Sewell from the Sewell Group, and last year’s Mace Retailer Champion Jeremy Clarke from the Motor Fuel Group – both Top 50 Indies.

Other key presentations will come from Ramsay MacDonald from GB Oils; Julie Tyler from Midlands Co-op; and Ian Taylor from Spar.

PRA chairman Brian Madderson will detail continuing challenges for the independent forecourt sector.

The event is free to all PRA and ACS members, who should contact Sophie Clarke at or call 01252 515001 to book their place.
