Conference Theme: "Disruption and Transformation”

F+L Week 2020 marks a new beginning for the iconic Asian fuels and lubricants industry event. Following last year’s 25-year celebrations, we turn our attention to the next 25, an uncertain time for the wider fuels and lubricants industries. F+L Week 2020 includes the dual themes of disruption and transformation, where we explore both the current state of the industry as well as the disruptive forces that we as an industry are facing and how we can prepare to transform our businesses to ready us for the next 25 years. F+L Week 2020 will feature key user industries and how they are being transformed by disruptive forces.

Join us at F+L Week 2020, for a new beginning.


F+L Connect - Intelligent Networking

Great conferences start with smart meetings. F+L Connect is the industry’s most intelligent networking solution, allowing you to identify and meet relevant business prospects more efficiently and with less upfront effort. This valued service is included in your conference registration fee and offers the most affordable networking opportunity throughout the Asian fuels and lubricants industries. In 2020, we have set aside 11 March as a dedicated networking day, with pre-assigned meeting areas to connect with your potential supplier or customer.


One Location. Two World-Leading Events.


In 2020, we will continue our successful partnership with the Asian Lubricant Manufacturers Union (ALMU), bringing you two world-leading events in the same location. A special ALMU member rate is available for those that wish to attend both the ALMU Annual Meeting and Global Leadership Summit (10-11 March, 2020), F+L Week 2020 (12-13 March, 2020) and the F+L pre-conference educational workshops (10-11 March, 2020). F+L Week provides ALMU members a fantastic opportunity to expand your knowledge on the latest technical and regulatory developments in the lubricants and fuels industry.


Bangkok, Thailand


With a new beginning, comes a new location. F+L Week 2020 will be held in the capital city of Thailand, a resilient market amid a slowing global economy. Bangkok is the most populous city of Thailand with 8,280,925 inhabitants (as at the 2010 census). The city is known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon. The bustling, crowded city is located about 40 km from the Gulf of Thailand and occupies 1,568.7 square kilometres of the Chao Phraya River delta. Bangkok is the economic centre of Thailand and has undergone explosive growth in recent times. Since the 1980s and 90s Asian investment boom an increasing number of multinational corporations have chosen to locate their regional headquarters in Bangkok. The area is a regional force in finance and business. It is also an international hub for transport.
