27th ICIS World Base Oils and Lubricants Conference 2023

Meet the value chain at the 27th World Base Oils and Lubricants Conference

This year's event is better than ever with a new streamed programme, a roundtable series, more social activities, and a luxurious venue. Despite the challenging times, there will be plenty to discuss, including the sanctions on Russian products coming into the EU, low prices in the US, and the hope that demand from China might balance the market.

The event has two content streams: the Strategic Programme, where CEOs discuss global markets and their plans for the future, and the Technical Programme, where attendees can understand specifications, testing, and future requirements.

Our International Keynote Speakers

The conference is renowned for its line-up of senior thought-leaders, innovators and visionaries who are driving the industry forward, and this year's portfolio programme is better than ever.
