Developed 'by' the fuel industry, 'for' the fuel industry, the APFI Forum provides an annual opportunity for industry participants and other stakeholders to discuss issues that are both internal and external to the fuel industry – as considered from the perspective of market participants, service providers, regulators and policy makers.

This annual event is hosted by the Australasian Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association (ACAPMA) - the national peak body representing fuel wholesale and fuel retail business in Australia.
