EVERY YEAR at NATURAL PRODUCTS EXPO WEST and NATURAL PRODUCTS EXPO EAST, editors and trend researchers from New Hope Natural Media and Sterling-Rice Group scour the show floor to find the products and brands they predict will shape the future of the natural products industry. The best of the best receive NEXTY nominations, which recognize the companies that embody not only the most innovative edge of the natural products industry, but also its deeply held social and environmental values.
From these nominations, we choose two types of winners in each category after each Expo. The first are the Editors’ Choice winners, who are selected by New Hope and SRG’s team of NEXT Forecast researchers. The second winners are selected by YOU, through our community voting process.
Below are the nominees from Expo East 2014. Read about our 2014 Expo East NEXTY nominees here and then vote for the one nominee in each category that you think most deserves the coveted NEXTY Award.
Voting for our 2014 Expo East NEXTY nominees begins at noon MT on Wednesday, Oct. 8 and ends at noon MT on Thursday, Nov. 13. The Popular Vote winners, along with the Editors’ Choice winners, will be announced on Wednesday, Nov. 19. They will also be recognized in a ceremony at Expo West 2015!
Contact us HERE with any questions. Congratulations to all of the NEXTY nominees, runners-up, and winners!
