F+L Week returns to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from June 14-16, 2023

F+L Week, the knowledge-driven industry event leader for the fuels, lubricants, additives and base oils industries organised by F&L Asia Ltd., has announced that its flagship event will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Originally known as the Annual Fuels & Lubes Asia Conference, the event celebrates its 28th year in 2023 and will build on the successful return of F+L Week Live! in 2022. New dates for the highly anticipated event have also been confirmed. Next year, F+L Week shifts from its traditional March timeslot to June 14-16. A dedicated networking day, F+L Connect, together with our table top exhibits, will be held on June 13, prior to the technical conference on June 14-15. On June 16, a plant tour is being planned for Melaka, with a lunch break at Melaka’s famous Jonker Street.

The theme for F+L Week 2023 is “Fuels and Lubricants: Navigating the Energy Transition”. Industry experts and thought leaders will provide deep insight into opportunities for businesses to not only survive the energy transition, but also to evolve to create a more resilient business model.

“As the world transitions to a low-carbon future, the fuel and lubricant industries must determine where and how to compete,” says Vicky Villena-Denton, CEO of F&L Asia Ltd., the company that organises this premier industry-leading annual event.

“F+L Week 2023 will answer some of the complex questions around the role of fuels and lubricants in a changing energy landscape,” she adds.

F+L Week is now accepting abstract proposals on topics relating to the rapidly changing energy landscape and the far-reaching impacts on transport fuels, lubricants, additives and base oils. The deadline to submit abstracts is January 31, 2023, with the preliminary speaker line-up expected to be confirmed at the end of February. To submit an abstract, click here.

The F&L Asia Awards, a highlight of the three-day event, provide a unique opportunity to come together as a community to acknowledge and celebrate outstanding individuals and companies that have played a critical role in our industry. As we emerge from the disruption of Covid-19 into a new era for our industry, the F&L Asia Awards allow us to honour the talent and creativity of industry professionals. The deadline for the submission of the awards nominations is March 31, 2023.

A dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel, sponsored by Lubrizol, will be held to honour the recipients of the F&L Asia 2023 Awards on June 15. Awards categories include: Person of the Year, Product Development of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award, and Future Leaders Award. To submit a nomination, click here.

F+L Week’s conference advisory board provides strategic advice to support the enactment of the annual conference. Every year, respected industry leaders are invited to be part of this independent panel.
