“Spring market proved to be quite strong in terms of buyer turnout and the positive energy amongst both attendees and exhibitors, so we anticipate this excitement to translate into a solid fall event as well,” Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority said in a statement. “There are a few new buildings making their debut in October, fall is typically stronger for international buyers and there’s already chatter about our programs and events such as The Point and Hospitality at Market, which are all encouraging indicators.”
With 11.5 million square feet of exhibit space spanning over an estimated 180 buildings, High Point Market is believed to be the largest home furnishings trade show in the world. It brings more than 75,000 people to this city in the north-west corner of North Carolina every six months to view product from more than 2,000 exhibitors. Approximately 10% of attendees are international.
Canada is the largest non-U.S. participant in the High Point Market. Some 90 Canadian home furnishings resources exhibited at the spring event earlier this year.
