Nutracon has been rebranded as NEXT Innovation Summit

Representing 35 years of industry knowledge, New Hope Natural Media has launched a suite of forward-looking solutions under the NEXT brand. NEXT Innovation Summit brings together insights, intelligence and innovation in the premier conference for product innovators. While continuing to provide the cutting edge science and technical insights you expect as a Nutracon Alumni, NEXT Innovation Summit broadens our educational offerings to explore the macro forces and integral science shaping our businesses, our industry and our world.

All the elements you loved about Nutracon are still here! So what has changed?

As the Natural Products Industry has grown from one industry to several, from organic and natural foods to supplements and functional ingredients, a string of circumstances are serving to unite the industry again. NEXT Innovation Summit is bringing back a focus on our full industry to reflect these important industry trends. We are stepping right up to the plate to discuss defining natural, our broken health systems, non-GMO, personalized medicine and a variety of national topics.

Why Attend

As we reach beyond our strong base of science, we will maintain our objective presentation of cutting-edge research that allows participant companies to better chart their future.

If you are a Nutracon alumni, NEXT Innovation Summit is still the Nutracon that you garnered actionable insights from. The first day is designed to inspire and set the stage for out of the box and lateral thinking to pace product and company developments in years to come. The second day of the conference will dig in to focus on the tactical issues and applications of these big ideas through 3 strong tracks.

For newcomers, NEXT Innovation Summit is now bigger than just formulation. It’s the discussion and intelligence necessary to understand where the natural products industry is headed, and a cooperative forum for finding success in that future.
