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.
— 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.
