2 INSIDER July /August 2019 Viewpoint Nominations Open for NEXTY Awards at SupplySide West 2019 In 2019, the INSIDER and SupplySide team is honoring the m ost innovative product launches that showcase the best about the health and nutrition industry. We're looking for products and brands that prioritize integrity, innovation and inspiration to enter our NEXTY Awards at SupplySide West. We want to honor standout products that help consumers meet their health goals, while also sustaining the environment and aiding the communities that helped create the product. We want product claims backed by science. We want eye-catching packaging with minimal carbon footprints. We want products that serve neglected populations in interesting ways. We want compelling "whys" behind product innovation and a great marketing campaign that tells the story. We're looking for f rontrunners in these categories: The NEXTY Awards at SupplySide is itself a "product revamp" of sorts. Formerly known as the "SupplySide Editor's Choice Awards," we've rebranded to solidify the NEXTY brand—which has gained industry recognition at Informa's Natural Products Expo West and Expo East trade shows—with INSIDER and SupplySide. While the INSIDER editors will continue to play a large role in determining the fi nalists and winners, this year and beyond, we are also inviting industry experts with product innovation and launch experience to evaluate and vote on the top products. The winners of these NEXTY Awards will be announced at SupplySide West on Oct. 18 on our Central stage at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Award fi nalists will be honored in slideshows on INSIDER leading up to SupplySide West, featured in a product showcase at the show, and receive feedback from judges on product attributes. In addition, winners will receive a trophy and access to the NEXTY Award winners' toolkit, which offers a customizable press release, social media tools, a winners' logo and insider tips to maximize the award. And of course, all fi nalists and winners get major bragging rights. The deadline to apply for the awards is July 26, 2019; products must have launched between summer 2018 and July 26, 2019. Learn more about the awards and nominate your products on the SupplySide West websit e.
