In a showdown of natural products stardom (and as a preview of great things to come at Natural Products Expo East), several dozen products rose to the top for meeting the main NEXTY Award criteria of innovation, inspiration and integrity. You'll see these exemplary products in the NEXTY Finalist showcase at Natural Products Expo East 2019 in Baltimore, as well as at their respective booths.
What are the NEXTY Awards? Twice a year New Hope Network and industry judges gather to celebrate the newest innovations coming from the brands driving the natural products industry forward. This time, from a field of 400 nominations, we’ve chosen 62 impressive products as finalists for the Natural Products Expo East 2019 NEXTY Awards program. The second and final round of judging took place in the New Hope Network office in Boulder, Colorado, on Aug.16. Judges for that round included New Hope Network's content team, marketing team, NEXT Data and Insights team and standards team, as well as a panel of industry judges. Read more about how the winners are chosen here.
In addition to the 62 products that impressed us, we’re recognizing six finalists for our NEXTY Consumer Choice Awards—a branch of the NEXTY Awards program that entails brands applying to have their product shipped to 1,000 targeted consumers to receive product ratings and feedback. Learn more about the new Consumer Choice Awards.
Only one product per category will be awarded a coveted NEXTY, to be presented to the winners on Thursday, Sept. 12, directly at their booths. We'll also award three NEXTY Consumer Choice winners and four NEXTY Editors’ Choice winners that will be selected on-site.
