IBWA's 2020 Annual Business Conference and Trade Show Goes Virtual
November 9 - 12

 

The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) realizes that COVID-19 is impacting organizations and individuals on multiple levels. These challenging times mean it's even more critical for the bottled water industry to convene as a community to learn, engage, and share best practices.

As a result, IBWA is excited to announce that this year's Annual Business Conference and Trade Show will be a virtual experience over the dates of November 9 - 12.

The focus of IBWA's 2020 Annual Business Conference and Trade Show is what it's always been: connection and collaboration. The only difference? It's virtual.

Join us November 9 - 12 for four days of quality education, fun networking, valuable engagement, and interactive discussions.
 
 
"Like other businesses and associations, IBWA has had to pivot how it operates in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. One such necessary move has been to reimage our annual business conference as a virtual event. So, from November 9 - 12, IBWA invites you to join us online for our Annual Business Conference and Trade Show. Attendees can still expect quality education sessions (and certified plant operators can earn CEU credits), fun networking opportunities, and lively industry discussions.”

—   Joe Doss, IBWA President and CEO


The IBWA Annual Business Conference is the only national bottled water-centric event held in the United States. According to the Beverage Marketing Corporation, bottled water sales increased by 5.7 percent in 2019, now totaling $19.4 billion (wholesale), and is the No.1 packaged beverage in the United States (by volume) for a fourth consecutive year. With sales increasing again, new industry regulations, and the continuing impact of COVID-19, attendance at the IBWA virtual conference will provide the networking and educational opportunities you need to leverage and ensure a return-on-investment for you and your company.
