US Base Oils and Lubricants Summit
Aug 22 – Aug 23 all-day

US Base Oils & Lubricants Summit will be taking place in Des Moines, IA on 22nd – 23rd of August, 2018. The two day event will bring together professionals across the lubricant supply chain to address current industry issues, explore new opportunities and network with peers. As regulations on the quality of both heavy-duty and passenger car motors oils become more strict, professionals across the entire lubricant spectrum can feel the impact. Join us and learn how leaders from base oil producers, lubricant blenders, additive manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers are confronting these challenges and pushing the boundaries of what modern lubricants are capable of.

This two-day conference will offer excellent opportunities for you to network with your peers: CEOs, CIOs, CSOs, Vice-Presidents, Directors, and Senior Managers.
