IBWA's convention is the single-best event for professionals in the bottled water industry to meet with peers and share tools, techniques, and best practices. Convention attendees will have access to the most thorough and advanced educational opportunities for bottled water professionals. In addition, exhibitors at the Tabletop Trade Show will highlight the many innovations in the bottled water industry.

"The 2007 IBWA Convention and Tabletop Trade Show has no rival when it comes to educational seminars and showcasing the services and advanced technology of the bottled water industry," stated IBWA President Joseph K. Doss. "As the leader in the bottled water industry, IBWA will continue its commitment to quality and help educate our industry's leaders and prepare them to meet all future challenges and opportunities."

This year, the IBWA event will be co-located with PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2007, the nation's most comprehensive packaging trade show. PACK EXPO Las Vegas will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is conveniently located next door to the Las Vegas Hilton — IBWA's headquarters hotel. PACK EXPO Las Vegas will feature over 1,200 exhibitors and 500,000 net square feet of exhibit space.
