About the Event

For almost a quarter of a century, RefComm has been the trusted source for safety training, innovative technology, and best practices in the refinery. We have culled decades of refinery experience into effective, practical solutions that your team can incorporate from the ground up to ensure your unit operates at peak performance, all while protecting your workers. RefComm's technical presentations and training courses are presented by industry leaders alongside a state-of-the-art, interactive exhibition hall featuring innovative tech and real-world solutions for all the challenges you face in your refinery.  Now in its 23rd year, RefComm regularly attracts 500-600 attendees from around the globe who specialize in delayed coking, fluid catalytic cracking, and sulfur production & processing units. In 2022, 555 refiners and vendors attended our first live event back after 2 years of being virtual.

Why you should attend the world’s leading technical conference for the refinery industry:

 The five-day agenda incorporates a technical program with industry insights from experts in the field, the latest technology, process, and equipment innovations as well as operational best practices. It also features a two-day training program, and a cutting-edge exhibition hall with 100+ vendors displaying the latest in refining technology and trends for your unit. And let’s not forget networking! All throughout the week-long conference there will be many opportunities to network, network, network!
