Mexico City to host 4th Global Bottled Water Congress
The 4th Global Bottled Water Congress is to be held from 12th to 14th September in Mexico City. The conference theme Sustainable Growth will bring together speakers from major producers, regional leaders and ground breaking innovators including addresses from Groupe Danone's Bonafont and NestlÃ© Waters.
The full programme will include retail outlet visits, a bottling plant tour and market briefings on flavoured and functional water as well as environmental and ethical issues.
The social highlight of the Congress will be a gala dinner for the presentation of the bottledwaterworld awards on 13th September at the Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico in the city's main square, Plaza de la ConstituciÃ³n.
"The global bottled water market has achieved strong growth from a combination of affordable convenience and health benefit," commented Zenith International Chairman Richard Hall. "Future growth, however, will only be sustainable if the industry increases its attention to ethics and the environment at the same time as focusing on innovation and product enhancement. We are delighted to be hosted by the world's third largest bottled water market this year to gain a truly global perspective on these issues."
The Global Bottled Water Congress is organised by industry experts Zenith International in association with industry journal bottledwaterworld. The event provides a complete overview of the latest trends and developments from around the world as well as extensive time for networking and debate. The 2006 Congress visited San Pellegrino in Italy and attracted over 250 delegates.
Event sponsors include DÃ¶hler Group, international producers of fruit juice concentrates and ingredients, Alcoa, leading global closure supplier, and health and safety certification experts NSF.
