Industry leaders from the world’s fastest-growing beverage category will be holding their 13th annual Global Bottled Water Congress from 10th to 12th October 2016 in Prague.
The keynote address will be given by Danone Waters Executive Vice President Francisco Camacho. Other speakers include: world market leader Nestlé; regional leaders Gerolsteiner, IDS Borjomi, Karlovarské Minerální Vody, Kofola Hoop and Radenska; and top innovators from America through Africa to Australia.
The Congress will feature the 2016 Global Bottled Water Awards to be presented at a gala dinner on 11th October. There will be an opportunity to visit the Karlovarské mineral water bottling plant at Carlsbad on 10th October. Innovation is the focus for 12th October including natural waters, enhanced waters and brands just launched.
Organised by Zenith Global, who will be presenting market trends alongside other industry experts, the theme of Flowing with Purpose will also be debated by panellists from the European Federation of Bottled Waters and the International Bottled Water Association.
The event is sponsored by Aptar and Bericap.
“Consumers are ever more intently looking for healthier hydration alternatives to other drinks. As a result, bottled water is gaining share of the global beverage market and been energised by innovation, with the category expanding to include new design, sparkle, flavour and functionality,” commented Zenith Global Chairman Richard Hall. “This year’s event provides a very timely occasion to look at how the market is shifting, what the opportunities are for further growth and what impact this will have on strategic priorities.”
