Metro Petroleum gets Pumped!

Metro Petroleum hosted its Pumped conference at The Star in Sydney earlier this month, which brought together retailers and suppliers for two days of business sessions, networking, and fun!

Day one was all smiles at Luna Park

The first day had attendees meet for a welcome brunch sponsored by Valvoline, followed by a morning of business sessions sponsored by Madison Marcus and Findex. These sessions were held at Luna Park where Metro had taken over the park for the day and attendees were granted exclusive use of the rides.

The first evening included a welcome dinner sponsored by Asahi that was held at a surprise location, which ended up being the Glass Island boat floating around the amazing Sydney Harbour. This was followed by an after party sponsored by Pacific Optics.

Guests networked, ate, drank, and danced the night away and it was a wonderful evening, but we were sadly informed of the passing of Dib family patriarch, Norm Dib, who had passed away earlier in the day. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Dib family at this sad time.

Day two included a breakfast sponsored by Gilbarco and Payments by Till, followed by an ‘Amazing Race’ style day of activities sponsored by Metcash and a relaxing afternoon lunch overlooking Sydney, sponsored by Frucor Suntory.

Delegates were split into teams to compete in an ‘Amazing Race’ day of activities around Sydney
Ready, aim, fire!

The final evening included the awards and farewell dinner, held at Marquee, and sponsored by Bega. The night was topped off with a little bit of karaoke followed by a guest appearance by DJ Havana Brown.
