Europe’s First Free to Attend Exhibition and Conference for the Lubricant Industry Launches in 2021

Lubricant Expo is Europe’s first free-to-attend exhibition and conference to bring together the entire lubricant supply chain, its stakeholders and end-user industries. This unique event is taking place on the 7th & 8th September 2021 at the leading exhibition venue Messe Essen in Germany. The location and unique format of the event means it is poised to provide a commercial platform connecting each part of the lubricant supply chain with key customers and decision-makers.

Formulators, blenders and technology providers exhibiting at the event will meet the full range of end-user buyers, with an expected 2,000+ attendees from industries including Marine, Automotive, Aerospace, Shipping, Transportation, Energy, Medical, Industrial to name a few. In addition, lubricant supply chain companies including chemical providers, machinery and equipment manufacturers will gain direct access to lubricant development professionals and engineers concerned with the production of lubricants themselves. An advisory board of industry leaders is helping to shape the focus and format of this event, from organisations including Shell, BP, Klüber Lubrication, Eni, Bizol Lubricants, MH Tribology and Rheinmetall alongside respected industry professionals and consultants such as Steve Holland, former CEO of Brenntag, and Rich Baker, Consultant and Director of Tribotonic.

Increased drive for sustainable products and technologies, enhanced customer specifications, new performance requirements and the ground-breaking integration of mass data technologies is creating a vibrant and evolving landscape of opportunities and challenges, both in the needs of lubricant customers and the production of lubricants themselves. Lubricant Expo will provide a dedicated showcase of the technology and knowledge needed to reduce costs, improve efficiency, maximise the performance of lubricants, achieve the requirements of the products they enable and preserve the health of machinery across operating environments.

A free conference running alongside the exhibition will feature 50+ expert speakers covering sustainability, manufacturing and material developments, market opportunities and trends, industry-specific case studies, evolving customer requirements, big data, advanced monitoring, optimal testing and analysis, lubricant selection, formulating for demanding applications and automated lubrication systems to name a few. Lubricant Expo conference provides a unique opportunity to gain access, on a complimentary basis, to an industry-leading programme that is not to be missed.

Over 100 exhibitors will be at the show for two days of networking, lead generation and education at Messe Essen, Germany, which is centrally located between Rotterdam (the maritime capital of Europe), Hanover, and Frankfurt. Leading organisations are already confirmed from key sectors such as formulation, blending, speciality chemicals, technology, and testing solutions, including: Multisol Group, Brenntag, Croda International, Peter Greven GmbH & Co., Seqens Group, Abnox AG, Bechem Lubrication Technology, Koluma GmbH, OKS Spezialschmierstoffe, Polaris Laboratories and Optimol Instruments Prüftechnik GmbH.

Paul Hooker, Event Director of Lubricant Expo says “We are absolutely delighted with the industry-wide support we are receiving for Lubricant Expo, from major global organisations like BP and Shell to industry-specific thought-leaders helping to shape this event. The drive for sustainable technologies alongside machine learning, AI and evolving manufacturing demands is creating a new landscape of opportunities, growth and challenges for the development of lubricants and associated technologies worldwide. Lubricant Expo provides the perfect opportunity to learn from and engage with the people and products helping to solve real-world engineering challenges.”
