Preview: Watercoolers Europe 2023 – Vienna, Austria

Online registration is now open for the Watercoolers Europe (WE) event that will be held at the InterContinental Vienna from 25-27 October 2023. With great pleasure, WE will celebrate its 30th anniversary in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria. That is 30 years of promoting healthy hydration; 30 years of communication with legislators across Europe to support the industry; 30 years of product innovation and development; and 30 years of dedicated work to protect our members’ investments. The event promises to be a door opener for fresh business ideas and to make new valuable contacts. There will be a warm welcome to members of ICBWA (International Council of Bottled Water Associations) as they join us in Vienna, bringing valued expertise from other continents. WE's chair, Marzia Mariotti, said: “We have the annual WE Gala Dinner and Aqua Awards in the magnificent Palais Ferstel – a wonderful evening that nobody from our industry should miss. I will be delighted to welcome you to Vienna.” The detailed programme is available now here:
