The first annual Upper Midwest Convenience Store and Energy Convention (UMCS) is soon approaching. March 27-29 will feature a number of fuel industry exhibitors from Minnesota and Iowa. The show is the result of a joint effort between the Minnesota Petroleum Marketers Association (MPMA) and the Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores of Iowa (PMCI). Members of these two trade organizations operate over 3600 businesses including convenience stores, fuel companies, restaurants, and others. Convention exhibitors will show petroleum equipment, c-store food and beverages, and point of sale products.
We’ll be at the convention too, displaying our products in booth 346. We’re excited to connect with new people and take advantage of the different opportunities available because of the partnership between MPMA and PMCI. A number of representatives from Westmor will be in attendance. For field service, you’ll be able to visit with managers Mark Kragenbring and Kevin McCormick in addition to salesmen Chad DeJoode, Paul Tostenson, and Jesse Schmidgall. Our General Manager of our Truck and Trailer division, Mike Hennen, will also be at the show, with Sales Territory Managers, Brady Griffith and Brad Jessen, attending as well.
We’ll be featuring the following equipment at our booth:
- 5600 gallon Refined Fuel Truck
- 4500 gallon Refined Fuel Truck
- 3400 gallon Ergoload™ LP Bobtail
- Auto Gas Dispensing Unit
- Gilbarco Point of Sale (POS) System
- Blue Phone Service Program for Stations
With 1400-1500 people projected to attend, the show has activities prepared for everybody. In addition to exhibitor booths, there’s a silent auction on Monday night, casino night on Tuesday, and numerous keynote speakers. You can visit UMCS’s online schedule for comprehensive details on all show events.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the show. You’re invited to stop by booth 346 anytime to meet or reconnect with our team. Hope to see you there!
