The ICIS Pan American Base Oils and Lubricants Conference is back in Jersey City. 

The US automotive industry was valued at $713.06bn in 2021 and is expected to reach $970.23bn by 2027. The South American automotive industry also has an expected growth rate of 5% from 2022 – 2027. Both markets are growing, but sustainability is now at the top of consumers’ minds. The demand for premium base oils combined with reducing your carbon footprint had led to the refining of base oils processes becoming a top priority.

At the event, you will get all the strategic and practical insights you need to wrap up the year and discover new strategies for 2023. With multiple networking opportunities, you will strengthen your existing connections and build new ones from across the Americas.

A new agenda format will bring you ICIS knowledge, and expert external views. From raw materials to supply chains, and sustainability to specifications, the interactive agenda will cover the region’s most pressing topics. A greater focus on networking, with the addition of the Live Meets sessions, will allow you to reconnect with existing contacts whilst forging new relationships across the value chain. Live Meets are topic-led networking, often following a content session. These focused sessions will allow you to meet like-minded people who can help you overcome future challenges. 

Nurture the connections made during the conference through the social activities on offer this December, including a drinks reception and multiple networking breaks. 



The new agenda format brings a mix of panels and presentations from ICIS and the wider industry. You will get insights and analytics, helping shape your strategy ahead of 2023. Key topics include:

-    Supply and demand dynamics
-    Supply chain
-    Latin America
-    Electrification
-    Geopolitics and economics
-    Specifications
-    Heavy duty vs passenger cars
-    Status of refineries
