Following last year’s success, we are repeating our Global Bottled Water Awards to be announced at a gala dinner at the Global Bottled Water Congress in Prague on the 11th October. We have made some changes to how we run the awards and are implementing the following changes:

  • The Best Natural Water and Best Flavoured Water categories will now require samples to be sent to our judges to taste
  • Twitter announcements of new entries
  • AND exciting changes to how the ceremony is run – not to be missed

Entering the awards will cost you €195.00 + VAT per category and every fourth category comes free of charge.
