Metro Petroleum hosted its 2023 Trade Show last week drawing record attendance from franchisees and suppliers.
More than 90 per cent of Metro’s network of franchisees gathered to share knowledge, insights, and to hear some exciting updates from the Metro head office team.
Elie Dib, National Sales and Retail Manager, Metro Petroleum, said that the common message from the day was about constant improvement and “being better than we were last year”.
“It’s not about necessarily being the best,” he explained. “We’ve improved remarkably from where we started with our Trade Show in a car park less than 10 years ago to where we are today, with proper booth set ups for our suppliers, and the largest attendance of our franchisees this year. For us, this is a huge step up.
“What we hope to achieve through these Trade Shows is to build a better and stronger relationship between our suppliers and our franchisees. These events enable face to face engagement between the two while also informing them and keeping them up to date.
“This year, saw our biggest representation of attending franchisees along with more than 46 companies showcasing more than 90 products at our Trade Show, so we’re very happy with how successful the day was.”
