Evian to Host Global Bottled Water Congress
This year’s 15th Global Bottled Water Congress on 22-24 October will be held at the same location as the 1st Congress – the home of the iconic global brand Evian in France, whose factory has now been completely upgraded to carbon neutral status.
Participants will feature Chief Executives and Directors from many national market leaders as well as a majority of the top global producers.
Other highlights include a focus on sustainability, hydration, innovation, marketing and water stewardship, capped by the 2018 Global Bottled Water Awards at a Gala Industry Dinner. The venue has hosted numerous industry and political summits including the G7.
Speakers already confirmed include Danone, Gerolsteiner, Nestlé and PepsiCo as well as Bisleri from India, Niagara from the United States and the Alliance for Water Stewardship. A keynote address on sustainability will be given by Maurizio Patarnello, Chief Executive of world market leader Nestlé Waters.
The Congress already has strong supplier sponsorship support with: Ardagh Group as platinum sponsor; Bericap, Sidel and Tetra Pak as gold sponsors; and ICE Water Management as silver sponsor. The programme includes an opportunity to visit both the Evian water factory and ICE Water Management.
“Everyone wants a healthier society and a healthier planet,” commented Richard Hall, Chairman of Zenith, which is organising the event as well as providing global food and drink consulting expertise. “Bottled water has a growing role to play in sustainable hydration and this Congress is designed to help the industry meet that challenge more effectively.”
