WE Chair’s Welcome Address
With great expectations and pleasure, Watercoolers Europe will celebrate its 30 th year anniversary in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria.
That is 30 years of promoting healthy hydration; 30 years of communication with legislators around Europe to support the Industry; 30 years of product innovation and development; and 30 years of dedicated work to protect our members’ investments.
I take this opportunity to thank both our past and present members who have created one of the safest, modern and exciting water dispenser markets in the world – here in Europe.
As we see at every WE event, the development continues. The market potential for our Industry is still huge and the need for healthy hydration is becoming increasingly relevant in our lives.
The event in Vienna 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) who will join us in Vienna, bringing valued expertise from other continents.
And last, but not least, 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.
