The International Publication Of The Packaged Ice Industry
Excellence, Leadership, Strength and Quality

Ice World Journal (IWJ), was started by the Regional Council of all ice associations in 1998 to bring the industry’s associations and members closer together, to allow all association members to benefit from the information that the others offered to their members and, at the same time, help the suppliers to the associations, who are all strong supporters of our associations, by not forcing them to advertise in eight different publications. For the last several years, I would like to think that IWJ has accomplished this mission very well.

As IWJ begins its 18th year of publication we ask you to advertise in Ice World and support the industry and help keep Ice World the premier publication for the packaged ice industry. With consolidation within the industry continuing at a fast pace it’s more important than ever to take this important opportunity to tell the industry what you do and how they can contact you.

The rate sheet and ad contract form is included so you can do just that. Please email to, fax it to  +1 (301) 963-4910,  or mail it to Ice World Journal, C/O Graphic Visions, 640 E Diamond Avenue, Suite F, Gaithersburg, MD 20877.

If you have any questions, please call or email me at +1(301) 963-8600 or

Thank you.
