Winners of Metro Petroleum’s Retailer and Supplier Awards were announced at a gala dinner on the final night of Metro’s End of Year Conference.

Held at Hunter Valley Crowne Plaza, the night, which was sponsored by Asahi Beverages, capped off a fantastic week of learning, networking, and activities.

The dinner provided the perfect opportunity for retailers and suppliers to come together, enjoy a meal, celebrate the successes of Metro over the past year, and of course congratulate the winners of the Retailer and Supplier awards.

John Dib, Managing Director of Metro Petroleum, addressed the group, thanking everyone for their support over the past year, before Andrew Sylvester, Group Buying Manager of Metro Petroleum, thanked those in attendance and gave special mention to supplier partners.

“Our supplier partners have reacted very quickly to our urgent needs. When a new site comes up, or we take over another business, you guys are always there to help us. On behalf of our team, I’d like to thank all the support you give us.”
