The UEIL Annual Congress is almost upon us, taking place this year in Cannes, France on 24-26 of October.

We are pleased to support the event as a media partner as well as attending – our lubricants industry experts Keeley Robinson and Emma Bloomfield will be there to discuss your recruitment questions so please get in touch if you would like to meet up.

The UEIL Annual Congress is a unique place for players in the European and global lubricants industry to meet and network, strengthen their relationships and learn more about the latest developments from a technological, economical, marketing and regulatory perspective.

UEIL's 2019 Annual Congress will take place at the Majestic Barrière in Cannes located on Boulevard de la Croisette, with the Hotel Le Negresco hosting the Annual UEIL gala dinner in Nice on Thursday 24 October.

The theme of this year’s event is “Challenges & Opportunities in the fast-changing lubricants industry” and promises to be a major highlight for our industry sector and for European industry more generally.

The event will be kicked off by keynote speaker Dr. Lutz Lindemann, from Fuchs Petrolub who will be opening the event with an engaging discussion on the "Positive disruption in the fast-changing lubricants industry." The Congress will feature speakers from Shell, Vickers Oil, NSF International, Lubrizol, and many more.

This year’s Congress includes two pre-conference events: a seminar in collaboration with Argus Media and a workshop on Artificial Intelligence delivered by Katie King.
