Now in its 12th year, the Global Bottled Water Congress is designed for industry leaders, suppliers, customers and analysts to gain a complete overview of the latest trends and thinking across all continents from top companies in each region, with extensive time for informal networking and discussion.

Bottled water is on the way to becoming the world’s most highly consumed commercial beverage. This year’s theme of Added value will focus on improving differentiation for both essential low cost, high quality suppliers in emerging markets, and lifestyle choice in developed markets.

The event begins with market insight briefings, followed by two days of conference sessions and a gala awards dinner. Delegates will hear from leading international and regional manufacturers on market and strategic developments, as well as smaller industry players and entrepreneurs showcasing a range of exciting new products and concepts.

The congress includes:

  • Conference sessions featuring many top producers and suppliers
  • Extensive industry networking time with leading global figures
  • Dedicated session of market insight briefings
  • Gala industry dinner with presentation of 2015 Global Bottled Water Awards

The capital of Portugal, Lisbon has a growing financial sector and is the second largest container port on Europe’s Atlantic coast. There are two UNESCO world heritage sites in the city.
