How are macroeconomic and political factors affecting the industry? How can your lubricants business take advantage of digital innovations? What are the new opportunities available in light of growth in varied lubricant end-applications?

Disruption and uncertainty, caused by a changing political landscape, have led the lubricants industry to consider how best to prepare for future market volatility. Alongside this, the digital revolution continues to grow throughout the lubricants supply chain and regulations have put an emphasis on formulation of environmentally acceptable lubricants. These topics are just some of the significant trends that will be covered at this year’s North American Industrial Lubricants Congress, giving you the opportunity to hear about the newest trends rising in the industry, directly from speakers that are leaders in their fields.

Whether your focus is on commercial growth or developments in formulation, this event will provide you with the insight and networking opportunities to strengthen both the commercial and technical aspects of your lubricants business.

Don’t miss the post-conference Metalworking Fluids Seminar, a specialized half-day meeting for those in the metalworking fluids sector to hear new trends and opportunities for these fluids.
