The annual UK Water Drinks and Soft Drinks Conferences, in conjunction with the Natural Source Waters Association and British Soft Drinks Association, will both be held online this year, on 3 and 4 September.
“After months of separation, September will be a great time to re-connect,” commented Richard Hall, chairman of event organisers Zenith Global. “We believe we have found the best platform for directors and senior managers to network as well as hear from and engage with industry leaders.”
Both programmes contain a full day of presentations, panels, interviews and discussions providing updates on consumer and market trends, innovation and new product development, and covering key issues from sustainability to health and hydration.
Industry leaders will also share their insights on coronavirus, Brexit and the new normal, including senior executives from Britvic, Coca-Cola, Danone, the Food and Drink Federation, Highland Spring, Nestlé Waters and Nichols.
Over 35 speakers will participate across the two days, representing the following companies:
In addition to providing valuable insights, the virtual events also offer extensive networking opportunities, with access to all event attendees through both instant chat and 1-1 video meeting functions.
“More people can attend a virtual event because there’s no travel, time can be used more flexibly, costs are substantially lower and recording allows for later review if anything is missed,” Richard Hall added. “We believe this can deliver even greater value and I hope attendees will be surprised how virtual can be made to feel real, even to the extent of casual one-to-one conversations.”
The UK Water Drinks Conference ‘Hydration Nation’ will be held on 3 September 2020. The UK Soft Drinks Conference ‘Personal Choice’ takes place on 4 September 2020. Full programme and booking details are available at www.zenithglobal.com/events.
