28th November - 30th November 2016 | Vienna, Austria
20 Years of Celebrating and Supporting the CIS Downstream Industry and their Partners
ABOUT THE CIS DOWNSTREAM SUMMIT 2016

Celebrating 20 years since the inaugural CIS and Russia Roundtable in 1996, today’s CIS Downstream Summit has become the region’s annual international meeting place.

We are excited to announce that we are returning to Vienna, the original host of the event 20 years ago! CIS Downstream Summit features first-hand experiences, latest refining technologies, strategies, operations and management techniques that enable refiners and producers meet their operational and financial goals. Networking, insight and an unrivalled social programme!

With more than 5600 high-level participants over the last 20 years, today the event includes a variety of formats and interactive sessions including inspiring keynotes, case studies, eye-opening site visits, panel discussions, speed networking and everyone’s favourite refinery roundtables.

We know that conferences should not all be geared around the presentations in the conference room, that’s why the summit’s social agenda includes drinks receptions, gala dinners and sightseeing trips to maximize opportunities to catch up with peers or meet new business partners.

Participants from across the international and CIS downstream sector will be joining us to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this – the most established event of the industry, steeped in heritage.
