September 12, 2022 By    

The LP Gas Growth Summit concluded this week, running Sept. 12-14 at Reunion Resort, outside Orlando, Florida, with about 60 propane retailers and vendor partners gathering for one-on-one meetings as well as education and networking events.

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

This year’s Growth Summit drew about 20 retail propane companies – representing 15 states – and 14 partners. The agenda on the first day featured boardroom presentations, during which partners explained their offerings and solutions for the industry, and a welcome reception.

One-on-one meetings between propane retailers and partners took place during both mornings of the Summit. Retailers visited partner suites at Reunion Resort’s Grande Tower for 20-minute meetings.

The Rawls Group presented on the topic of employee morale and engagement. Representing the firm were Kendall Rawls, the director of development and a second-generation employee, and Dan Iosue, a succession adviser.

LP Gas Editor-in-Chief Brian Richesson moderated a propane retailer panel discussion on the final day. Panelists this year were Jason Edwards of Pacific States Petroleum, Steve Farkas of Sharp Energy, Ron Snyder of DCC Propane and Cathy Wallace of San Isabel Services Propane.

Also during the Growth Summit, attendees participated in a golf outing at Reunion Resort’s Palmer Course and enjoyed a barbecue dinner.

Growth Summit partners this year were ADD Systems, Anova, Blue Cow Software, Cargas, Gray, Gray & Gray, IPS, Legacy Energy Consulting, LP Cylinder Service, Metsa, Otodata, Quality Steel, Rural Computer Consultants, Tiger Payment Solutions and Westmor.
