Platinum Partner:

Join us at the 27th World Base Oils and Lubricants Conference.

The World’s number 1 event for the global base oils and lubricants industry is bigger and better than ever for 2023.

Not only is this the largest gathering of the base oils and lubricants community, it’s also the only place to meet with the entire supply chain, engage with world-class content and maximise face-to-face time in both business and social settings.  

After a hugely successful return in June 2022, the event will be taken to the next level this May. With a new, luxurious venue, even more networking opportunities, an incredible program of content, speakers and the ICIS insight and expertise that you have come to expect, plus plenty of social activities, it promises a truly world-class experience.

The event will be held during the week running up to the Coronation of the King of England, King Charles III, so delegates can capitalise on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of history in Royal Windsor.  

Programme Highlights


New Strategic Programme  

A host of C-suite perspectives and keynotes from inside/outside our industry, challenging viewpoints on everything from sustainability and supply chains to refinery operations and the automotive industry.
