The International Bottled Water Association, or IBWA, founded in 1958, is a trade association of companies in the bottled water industry.

It promotes bottled water through events such as National Hurricane Preparedness Week.[1] The association fights attempts to ban or tax bottled water[2] [3] [4] and is active in other legislative and regulatory areas, including drafting bottled water regulations adopted by some state governments.[5]

IBWA operates an annual convention and trade show.[6] [7]
