About the Expo

The Convenience & Impulse Expo is the most significant trade event in the Australian Petrol and Convenience calendar, a position it has maintained since inception more than 30 years ago. Uniquely in this industry, the expo is open to suppliers and retailers from all banners and brands, providing unmatched opportunities for business building and relationship development.

It is the leading destination for smart Convenience retailers wanting to discover new products, gain industry knowledge and make important connections to grow and improve their business.

C&I Expo alternates between Sydney and Melbourne each year, with exhibitors from across the country and Asia Pacific showcasing products and services specifically for Convenience business owners and operators.

The C&I Industry Symposium headlines the expo, giving attendees access to thought leaders and respected experts who share insights, case studies, data, predictions, and trends affecting the industry. Day one of the show traditionally concludes with relaxed networking drinks, to which all exhibitors and registered visitors are warmly invited.
