For over 25 years the World Refining Association (WRA) has connected refiners to technology through industry-leading content and global networking events. Fuelled by growing pressures to decarbonise it has become vital for the downstream industry to innovate and establish new methods to satisfy energy demands in order to remain relevant. Our mission is to bridge the gap between traditional refining processes and future technologies to guarantee the industry's role in a sustainable future.

We strive to bring together the industry’s influencers to share their thoughts, ideas and vision for the future. From our experienced and capable team, we bring professionalism and enthusiasm to each event and we look forward to producing a valuable and worthwhile experience for our customers.
