NEXTStore expands to US East coast, the biobased retail showcase comes to ABLC 2016 in February 2016

December 16, 2015 |

The NEXTStore, a transformative retail “Store of the Future” showcasing fuels, foods, beverages, products and packaging from the biobased revolution, is coming to ABLC 2016, the Advanced Bioeconomy Leadership Conference at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC, February 17-19, 2016.

The USDA BioPreferred Program has become a presentation partner and products that have earned the USDA BioPreferred label will be prominently demonstrated and displayed as part of ABLC 2016.

In addition, the BioChannel.TV will film and livestream coverage from the NEXTStore as part of its complete ABLC 2016 coverage — including product demonstrations and interviews with innovators and product developers, and an episode of The New Voices focused on biobased products and their retail partners.


In the NEXTStore, products from some of the best-known brands in the world will be on display — including Lego, Patagonia, Coca-Cola, Tide — as well as emerging brands and ingredients that are redefining foods, plastics, clothing, paints, carpet, lacquers, rubber, fuels, health & beauty products, and fragrances. Shelf talkers and product demonstrators tell the stories of innovation, performance and sustainability.

“It’s high time that lawmakers, legislative staffers, government buyers, agencies and department staff, financiers, and everyone on the East Coast have a chance to see that you could practically live in the NEXTStore, with so many sustainable, affordable, high-performance low-carbon products now available,” said Digest editor Jim Lane. The NEXTStore has been seen exclusively on the West Coast since it was first staged in 2014.

Expansion of The NEXTStore to the US east coast and ABLC 2016 is announcement #3 in the 50 Days of the Bioeconomy, underway now and leading up to ABLC 2016 and Leadership Week in Washington DC.
