Brussels, 1 October 2019: UEIL is looking forward to its annual Congress, which will take place in Cannes, France, on 24-26 October. Registration is open and available here. 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 Congress is going from strength to strength. We are witnessing a gradual increase in the number of participants year on year,”  said UEIL President Valentina Serra-Holm. “This shows the value the Congress brings to members of the European and global lubricants industry – it provides the perfect setting for the free-flow of ideas that affect our industry going forward, from technological change to financial and regulatory developments. So don’t miss the opportunity and join us in Cannes!”

The Congress will take place at the Hotel Le Majestic, located on Boulevard de la Croisette, with the prestigious Hotel Le Negresco hosting the gala dinner in Nice on 24 October. This promises to be an unforgettable experience.
