This year, more than ever, the Beverage Innovation Awards provides the non-alcoholic drinks industry with the opportunity to celebrate its creativity and innovation in product categories ranging from juice and juice drinks through functional and energy to adult and gourmet.
This year’s competition also includes packaged water, dairy drinks and a wide range of categories designed to reward new initiatives in packaging, marketing and the increasingly important environmental and ethical arena.
The chance to present the finalists and winners with their awards at Drinktec makes this the networking opportunity of the decade. Drinktec is the Olympic Games of the industry’s trade fairs, one of its great strengths being that it’s held only every four years.
Visitors see a real step-change in the way the industry is responding to the varying demands of the marketplace, and setting new trends through innovation in packaging and ingredients. We’re convinced that the awards will reflect the most exciting developments in the industry and we aim to ensure that the gala dinner is the biggest event of its kind ever held in Europe.
A range of sponsorship opportunities are still available. For further information, please visit the Beverage Innovation Awards website.
