The 27th ICIS World Base Oils and Lubricants Conference in Windsor 3-5 May 2023

Driving Innovation and Sustainability

The ICIS Base Oils and Lubricants Conferences are the pinnacle of the industry calendar. It features critical market intelligence, valuable insights, and unparalleled networking opportunities. These events are essential for base oils professionals worldwide.


The ICIS World Base Oils and Lubricants Conference has been held annually since 1997 and has become a key event in the global lubricants industry. Since then, ICIS has been connecting markets to optimise global resources in the chemical, fertilizer, and energy sectors. As an independent source, ICIS provides transparent market intelligence, benchmark pricing, and insights to help businesses make informed decisions, mitigate risks, and seize new opportunities. ICIS empowers thousands of quality decisions every day, enabling customers to negotiate with confidence and think more innovatively.

The Conference makes a long-awaited return after a two-year hiatus and in a brand-new location in Windsor that offers unparalleled opportunities to network with peers, forge commercial partnerships, and future-proof your organisation. With sustainability emerging as a top priority for companies, the surge in electric vehicle sales and supply chain disruptions prompted a shift toward innovative business models.

Something New To This Year

Experience the best understanding of this year’s event with an improved streamed program, a roundtable series, more social activities, and a luxurious venue. Despite the challenges of recent times, there will be plenty of engaging discussions, including talks on the sanctions placed on Russian products entering the EU, low prices in the US, and the potential for Chinese demand to stabilize the market. The event features two streams of content: the Strategic Programme, with insights from CEOs on global markets and future plans, and the Technical Programme, providing attendees with critical knowledge on specifications, testing, and future requirements.


The previous year’s agenda featured a wealth of valuable insights from expert panels and Live Meet sessions. Key topics included energy security and renewable energy, sustainability, electric vehicles, base oil demand, supply chain dynamics, the effects of the pandemic on supply chains and logistics strategies, and the intersection of the aviation industry with the base oils sector. Attendees gained a comprehensive understanding of these critical issues and were left with valuable takeaways for their organizations.
