Did you know there are 75,000 attendees each market in 180 buildings with 11.5 million square feet of showroom space?  I can help you navigate HPMKT like a seasoned attendee.

Let me introduce you to my favorite sources and the “best of” new introductions, from upholstery, and case goods to accessories.

This is a perfect primer to see different areas of market, including transportation options, educational seminars, networking events, helpful digital tools, and the best refueling and party spots, so when you navigate your next day(s) of market, you’ll be comfortable, confident, and be able to use your your time to maximum capacity.  Let me help you reach your market goals.

I’ve been happily pounding HPMKT pavement for 20 years

I’ve been working with companies that design and produce products with artisanal details, the real MAKERS of High Point Market.  I’ve curated three HPMKT Insider’s Tours since 2018, was on the HPMKT Design Bloggers Tour both Spring & Fall 2017.  I’ve been co-chair of the Withit New York Design Tour for ten years, and I customize tours of NYC’s Garment District and am launching Venice Maker Tourism in November.

In addition to our showroom visits, I will give you our customized booklet with contact info for each product line, required order minimums, additional not-to-miss showrooms and social media handles so you can cover market with a cheat sheet in hand.

Taking buses, shuttles, and walking to different areas of High Point are all part of the market experience. My tour will help you navigate market on your own like a pro.
