Recognizing the contributions and achievements of bottled water professionals has a long and celebrated history at IBWA. Since 1961, we’ve been faithfully taking time to pause and acknowledge that without the dedication of our member companies and their staffs, the bottled water industry would not enjoy its past or current success.
Thus, IBWA is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2010 IBWA Awards Program.
The deadline for nominations to all awards listed below is June 15, 2010. The winners will be announced at IBWA’s General Session on Thursday, September 23, during the 2010 IBWA Convention and Trade Show (co-locating with InterBev) in Orlando, Florida, September 20-24, 2010.
IBWA’s Route Salesperson of the Year Award
Nobody exemplifies customer service in the bottled water industry better than your route salespeople. That’s why IBWA created its Route Salesperson of the Year Award—to honor those individuals who represent your company and interact with your customers on a daily basis.
IBWA’s Plant Manager of the Year Award
Your plant manager makes a tremendous impact in achieving business goals and objectives. It’s your plant manager who ensures, on a daily basis, that your bottled water is a safe product for your customers. The IBWA Plant Manager of the Year Award recognizes the hard work and dedication that plant managers exemplify for their companies and the bottled water industry.
The IBWA / Kristin Safran Directors’ Award
This award recognizes IBWA members whose advocacy, commitment, or actions on behalf of IBWA and the bottled water industry have achieved clear and measurable results for IBWA and the bottled water industry as a whole. Only IBWA Board of Directors, Executive Committee members, and Committee Chairs may provide candidate nominations for the Directors’ Award.

The Environmental Stewardship Award recognizes member companies who have excelled in creating and implementing sustainable environmental projects and conservation measures. This award also provides an opportunity for IBWA to educate consumers, government officials, and the media about the environmental, conservation, and stewardship policies practiced by the bottled water industry.
