Gasoline, Naphtha & LPG Conference

Platts is delighted to announce a new event to join our long standing European Refining and Middle Distillates conference series.


The inaugural Gasoline, Naphtha & LPG Conference comes at a very exciting time to analyze the latest developments, challenges and trends at the light end of the barrel. Above all, it will seek out strategies enabling those in attendance to discover how to maximize profitability of gasoline, naphtha and LPG.


Gathering Europe’s leading refiners, petrochemical players, traders, regulators, logistics providers and other key industry stakeholders under one roof at the luxurious Mainport Hotel for the very first time, Platts is presently sourcing over 20 expert speakers to gather for frank discussion and unrivalled debate.


We hope that you can join them by clearing your busy schedule on November 7-8 to travel to Rotterdam, Netherlands to network, learn and obtain key insights.
