Tour HPMKT Like An Insider – April 2019

Hello Fringe Friends, come along and let me be your guide on the High Point Market Insider’s Tour April 2019

We had such an incredible time last October, I’ve been invited back to lead a tour for new attendees and YOU are invited.  Have you not attended High Point Market? Or only been to one market in the last two years? Then this One Day COMPLIMENTARY Tour Saturday April 6th, is for you!

Here is what Fall 2018 attendees had to say about our experience:

Space is limited  – deadline is March 15th, so reserve your spot ASAP. There is no cost to you, but you must qualify.

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.

Showroom highlights from our last tour:

We attended the Fearless Design CEU and had gifts awaiting our arrival from our wonderful host showrooms.

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 curated a HPMKT Insider’s Tours for Spring and Fall 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.

Simply put, I love connecting the most talented and innovative in our industry,

giving people a special, insider introduction that they might never have on their own.

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.

I am relaunching everything, so to speak, and working on a design book, in 2019. I have not attended High Point Market in five years at least, and your insiders tour would be a fabulously fun and informative reintro to the market. Please pick me, pick me!
