LP Gas launched the annual Growth Summit in 2015 as an avenue for propane retailers to form partnerships that help them strengthen their offerings in traditional markets, expand into new markets and increase their operational efficiencies in serving a variety of customers.

The unique networking event brings together retail propane company leaders and vendor partners for one-on-one meetings, educational opportunities and a golf outing. Last year’s Growth Summit drew about 20 retail propane companies – representing 15 states – and 14 partners.

“We are newer in the propane industry, and we recognize the tremendous growth opportunity within propane. We want to align ourselves with the best vendors and the best partners and move forward in what we see as a great growth industry,” said Ryan Robbins, vice president of sales and marketing at Button Holdings, who attended in 2022 with company CEO Steve Passio.

Growth Summit partners confirmed so far this year are ADD Systems; Cargas; Gray, Gray & Gray; IPS; Legacy Energy Consulting; LP Cylinder Service; Metsa; Otodata; Quality Steel; Rural Computer Consultants; Tankfarm; Tiger Payment Solutions; and Westmor.

“You get to sit down one on one with the marketer and with the vendor to discuss in much greater detail, [at a] much higher level,” David Dodd of Otodata shared with LP Gas during the 2022 event. “Plus, the social aspect of it – where we have dinners together, we have a golf outing, we have a barbecue – all that leads up to a much deeper level of understanding between the marketer and the vendor.”

LP Gas offers propane retailers a complimentary participation package that includes two-nights lodging, meals and golf. LP Gas asks retailers interested in attending the Growth Summit to complete an application. Retailers with questions should contact LP Gas Editor-in-Chief Brian Richesson at brichesson@northcoastmedia.net or 216-706-3748.

LP Gas will continue to welcome partners in the coming months, ahead of the late-summer event. Partners interested in attending this year should contact LP Gas Publisher Brian Kanaba at bkanaba@northcoastmedia.net or 216-706-3745.
