Wayne Fueling Systems, part of Dover Fueling Solutions (DFS) and a global provider of fuel dispensing, payment, automation and control technologies for retail and commercial fuel stations, has concluded its 2017 Technology Summit in Austin, Texas, with strong attendance and positive attendee feedback.


This year’s technology summit brought nearly 300 Wayne customers, distributors, suppliers and more participants to Wayne’s North American headquarter city. Session topics at the summit included payment, the future of fueling, retail and the Internet of things (IoT), with speakers from Google, Intel, Dell/EMC, PayPal and other industry-leading companies sharing their expertise.


Additionally, a “Partner Showcase” area provided the opportunity for sponsors of the summit to exhibit and promote their technologies, alongside of Wayne’s latest products and solutions. This year’s summit also featured the “Wayne Innovation Room,” which offered attendees an exclusive look at some of Wayne’s never-before-seen future technologies.


“We’re pleased that we could provide such informative speakers from some of the world’s top technology leading companies for our 2017 Technology Summit,” said Wayne’s VP of North America, Bill Reichhold. “Wayne has been leading the way for customers worldwide with innovative fuel dispensing systems, products and technology for more than 125 years. This summit was a fantastic opportunity to hear from other industry leaders about what the future may hold for our business and our world.”


Chris Hickman of Cary Oil Co., Inc. noted that, “Having attended many industry events around the country, I would rank this one as one of the best for a variety of reasons. If [Wayne] continue[s] to host this event, we will be participating to ensure our customers are prepared to best position their sites for today, tomorrow and well beyond the 2020 EMV® deadlines.”
