“Brazil has the 7th biggest market worldwide and the event aims to focus on reaffirming the credentials of branded bottled water choice together with packaged water practicality. It should prove a highly effective forum to help refine business priorities and ensure future growth," commented Zenith International Chairman Richard Hall.
