The F&L Asia Awards, held annually in conjunction with F+L Week, highlight the extensive range of talent in our industry in the region and honour people and products that have made an exceptional contribution to the fuels and lubricants industry. Category winners will be honored during the F&L Asia Awards Dinner at the Grand Hyatt Singapore on 6 March, 2019.

The recipient of the "F&L Asia Future Leaders Award" will show promise, possess leadership ability, and will already have demonstrated successes in their career. Nominees must have shown strong commitment to the industry but should have no more than 15 years of industry experience.

“We are excited about uncovering the next generation of leaders in our industry with the introduction of the Future Leaders Award in 2019,” says Vicky Villena-Denton, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of F&L Asia, the major industry publisher that hosts the popular industry conference dedicated to base oils, lubricants, petroleum additives and transport fuels. “F+L Week 2019 is focused on exposing future fuel and lubricant trends, so it is appropriate that we also identify our future leaders in this forum,” she says.

Nominations for all three awards are being accepted until 31 December, 2018. Past recipients have been extremely influential and highly dedicated industry leaders, and creative and innovative products and technologies. Please have your say and tell us who you’d like to see recognised for their contributions to our industry in 2019. We are looking for true industry ambassadors! Winners will be selected by F+L Week's independent advisory board.

ABOUT F+L WEEK

F+L Week is the premier fuels, lubricants, additives and base oils conference in Asia-Pacific and the convergence of the industry-pioneering event in the region, The Annual Fuels & Lubes Asia Conference, and the Asia-Pacific Base Oil Conference. Next year marks the 25th iteration of this popular conference, which has evolved over many years and will continue to do so, as our industry undergoes the biggest transformation in its history. The event is the industry’s must-attend annual event in Asia and the only annual conference in Asia-Pacific with a high level of commercial, i.e., non-academic, technical content on the subject of transport fuels, lubricants, base oils and additives.

One Location. Two World-Leading Events.

F+L Week 2019 has partnered with the Asian Lubricant Manufacturers Union or ALMU to bring you not one, but two world-leading events in the same location. The ALMU Annual Meeting and Global Leadership Summit and F+L Week 2019 run from 4-7 March, 2019. F+L Week 2019 provides ALMU members a wonderful opportunity to expand their knowledge on the latest technical and regulatory developments in the lubricants and fuels industry.
