It was a great evening at the APEA Awards Dinner, proudly sponsored by NUPI Industrie Italiane again this year. 2019 has been a great year for NUPI in terms of business in the UK petroleum field and we were very happy to celebrate it with so many familiar as well as new faces. Well done to all the award winners! APEA Live 2019 gala evening was attended by nearly 700 industry people and the event was hosted by Colin Murray in an energy charged lively evening. Preceded by exhibition and conference, that combines knowledge and experience from experts and key thought-leaders in the industry and focused on retail, technical regulation and the future of transport this year, the APEA Awards Dinner is, hands down, the industry’s biggest night of the year, providing a magnificent climax to another year of challenges, hard work and great achievements.
