HPM registration opens
HIGH POINT, North Carolina – Registration for the fall 2017 edition of the High Point Market is now open for buyers, exhibitors and other professions, the organisers have announced. Likened to ‘Fashion Week’ for home furnishings, the semi-annual furniture trade event will be held from Saturday, October 14 to Wednesday, October 18.
“We have some really exciting programming lined up for October, and we’re already hearing from various exhibitors about exciting launches, debuts and grand openings, so we’re expecting a really great Market Week come October,” Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority (HPMA), said in a statement. “Be sure to stay tuned over the next few weeks via our website and social media!”
Approximately 80 Canadian furniture and furnishings resources exhibit at the High Point Market, which is usually held in April and October each year. They comprise the largest contingent of exhibitors from outside of the United States participating in the event.
In all, the HPMA said the event hosts some 2,000 exhibitors who occupy some 11.5 million square feet of display space across some 180 buildings scattered throughout this city located in central North Carolina. The organisers believe it’s the largest furniture trade industry event the world, attracting more than 75,000 visitors every six months.
