Scheduled for March 17-19 2015 in Dubai, the program includes regional and global market insights plus a focus on growth opportunities and an entrepreneur shoot-out. Speakers will convene from as far afield as America, Australia, Africa and India and Europe.
Zenith International chairman Richard Hall said: "This is a crucial time for soft drinks. Traditional views are being questioned, new technologies are opening up new opportunities and society is making ever greater demands on industry."
"Under our Thirst for Change theme, the conference aims to discuss these challenges and consider solutions which will help businesses plan better for the future at the same time as responding effectively to current market pressures".
