19th ICIS Middle Eastern Base Oils and Lubricants Conference

Incorporating FUEL RETAIL & AFRICA

October 2024

The Middle East's biggest and most trusted Base Oils and Lubricants Conference

The ICIS Middle Eastern Base Oils and Lubricants Conference is the region’s premier event for the industry, bringing together over 450 delegates to hear from senior speakers to discuss the key topics that affect the global market dynamics. The conference will be returning for the 19th time in October 2024.

Be part of the largest gathering of base oils and lubricants professionals in the Middle East. With thirty-two nationalities in attendance in 2023, the conference offers diverse and world-class networking with senior professionals from across the value chain. Exclusive insight into the ever-changing market also equips you with the knowledge required from the Middle East and African markets.

Fuel Retail & Africa

The fuel retailing business is changing, governments in Saudi Arabia and UAE are encouraging upgrading petrol forecourts to include EV charging stations and oil change and lubricant shops. This change will see greater and faster access to lube products for consumers and create a new opportunity for businesses. Driven by sustainability and changing consumer trends, the conference will examine the growth potential, new revenue streams and associated risks that forecourt upgrades would have on the base oils and lubricants value chain. Delegates will hear from leading fuel retailers in the region who will provide insight on end-consumers, whilst helping companies maximise their strategies for future success in the changing landscape.

Africa’s economic growth over the next decade will reshape trade opportunities and strengthen ties between the continent and the Middle East. The event will provide insight and numerous networking opportunities between senior executives from Africa and the Middle East.
