M-PACT, the annual Midwest Fuel and Convenience Trade Show, will come to the Indianapolis Convention Center April 4-6, featuring new products and services in the exhibit hall, as well as education to meet the needs of today’s diverse fuel and convenience supply chain. The M-PACT show is a collaboration of the four state energy-marketer associations from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.
This year, the opening general session on April 5 will feature Lori Buss-Stillman, NACS vice president of research and education, and Denton Cinquegrana, chief oil analyst of Oil Price Information Service (OPIS). Together, these speakers will provide insights and vision for attendees at every level of the organization to help teams move forward effectively during these ever-changing times, according to the group. Buss-Stillman will share state-of-the-industry research that will help retailers use technology in the consumer experience for growth and engagement, while Cinquegrana will delve into the trends to watch and offer insights into how to make 2023 a good year for your organization.
“Winning with today’s convenience-minded shopper is all about connecting with them on a deeper level. It’s about understanding who they are, what matters most to them, and using that knowledge to deliver meaningful experiences that keep them coming back time and time again,” said Buss-Stillman. “I am looking forward to returning to M-PACT and sharing my passion for and excitement about the unique opportunities convenience retail has to win the hearts and loyalty of consumers.”
M-PACT will also include education in five focus areas: Retail, Wholesale, C-Store Managers, Innovation, and Equipment & Environmental.
“We are very intentional each year to program education and networking events around the trade-show hours, so attendees do not have to choose between the two,” said Brian Clark, executive director of the Kentucky Petroleum Marketers Association. “That said, it’s a very good idea to bring a team of individuals to ensure your company can see all there is to see. Providing a regional experience of this size is truly the most cost-effective way to learn from so many exhibitors and educational offerings.”
