High Point Market 2018
The Highpoint Market is held in High Point, North Carolina, and is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world, with over 10 million square feet and roughly 2000 exhibitors throughout about 180 buildings. It's literally the entire city. The market holds two major shows each year, one in April and another in October, running one week in the Fall, and two weeks in the Spring. There are approximately 70,000-80,000 attendees from over 100 countries.The High Point Market Authority coordinates the exposition, whose showrooms have nearly completely filled what had been the historic downtown district.
Kimberlie Rice and R. Designs, LLC, attended because successful designers, buyers and retailers are not creating their success by sitting in their offices. They are getting out, networking, learning and thriving through interaction with industry peers, tastemakers, and like-minded professionals.
Networking & Trends
Thousands of furniture and home décor professionals descend on High Point Market twice a year, creating an ideal environment for networking and fostering new relationships. Sharing ideas and best practices, engaging with top taste makers, staying ahead of the latest trends, and discovering ways to grow their businesses.
