The five-day conference (Sunday-Thursday) showcases more than 300 technical papers, application- based case studies and best practice reports, and discussion panels on technical or market trends. Education courses support professional development needs and prepare people for one of STLE's four certification programs. Exhibits and commercial presentations spotlight the latest products and services of interest to lubrication professionals. Business networking is another invaluable part of the STLE meeting experience. For many people, their STLE relationships are the number one problem-solving resource that they use on the job every day.
