High Point Market Insider’s Tour

At a whopping 11.5 million square feet of show space, High Point Market can be a daunting place for the newbie coming to High Point Market.  First of all, how do you navigate a trade show that spans the entire city – and beyond?  Which buildings do you visit first?  Where are the designer-friendly showrooms?  Which educational seminars should you attend?  Where do you grab lunch or a quick bite to eat?  Which showrooms offer customization, which in my opinion is the best value a designer can bring to the table?

High Point Market Insiders Tour

Have no fear.  I have paired up with High Point Market to lead a tour for a select group of designers and/or buyers who have either never been to market or have not attended in the last four markets (prior to Fall 2015).  The tour consists of an invitation-only Style Spotters networking event on Friday evening, and on Saturday we will continue with breakfast and a meeting/brief overview with the High Point Market Authority, after which I will take you for a full day tour of all my favorite showrooms, with a big emphasis on customization.   We all know that being able to bring unique product that wouldn’t otherwise be accessible to our clients is one of our most powerful tools and a valuable asset we bring to the table.

This short, one day tour is the perfect way to get oriented to market, as I will be taking my tour to showrooms all throughout High Point – some of which you may miss if you aren’t attending with an “insider”.  I have attended High Point Market religiously since 2013 and much of my business’ success can be attributed to the relationships I have made at market.  In 2014 I served as a High Point Market Style Spotter and since then I have attended as a Sponsored Blogger and a blogger on the High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour AND I write a report on High Point Market Trends every market, so I know the market well and I would love the opportunity to share my experience and resources with those attending.
