Extra space has been added to the capacity of next year’s UNITI expo after the space allocated for equipment exhibitors sold out.

The organisers of the event, which will take place from 14 to 16 of June 2016 in Stuttgart, have added an additional hall for exhibitors from the areas of forecourt equipment, fuel logistics and alternative fuels. The booth allocation will start at the beginning of October.

Original planning set the exhibition space at 30,000 sqm and the addition could expand the exhibition to up to 40,000 sqm – compared with 25,000 sqm for the previous event in 2014.

“The expansion of exhibition space has proved to be the right step since we have already received the first bookings and numerous requests for the new hall,” said Bruno Boroewitsch, responsible for exhibitor sales at UNITI expo. “The high demand has exceeded all our expectations, reinforcing our position in the development of the exhibition concept.”

The first UNITI expo was held in June 2014 and was attended by 11,000 professionals from 92 countries. With 344 exhibitors from 29 countries, the exhibition space spanned an area of 25,000 sqm.
