The High Point Market Authority (HPMA) is making preparations to launch two new programs at the upcoming Spring Market, set for April 14-18.
The first program, The Point, promises a robust 6-day schedule designed to serve Market attendees. Located on Commerce Avenue, The Point will include roundtable discussions moderated by well-known influencers on relevant industry topics, an interactive demonstration area, celebrity meet and greets, and networking opportunities. The space will also host a Parson’s Table pop-up each day for lunch, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the popular Market staple, in addition to offering an organic juice bar and gourmet coffee bar each morning. A team of Market advisors will be on-site to answer questions, assist guests with planning, and offer in-depth, one-on-one consultations for new buyers.
“Our tagline for The Point is ‘Learn. Grow. Connect,’ ” comments Tom Conley, President & CEO of HPMA. “We are here to help this industry learn and connect so business can grow and prosper.”
The second new program slated for a spring debut will invite Market guests to embrace their sense of discovery while exploring designated showrooms in a progressive, dinner-style format. Scheduled for Monday, April 16, from 4-7 p.m., this connection-focused gathering will be called, “Third Night: A Progressive Gala.”
Third Night will take place in the Hamilton Wrenn Design District, located on Hamilton Street and Wrenn Street. The evening will offer live entertainment throughout the district with a wide variety of special menus, themed parties, and influencer interactions within the participating showrooms.
“We are thrilled to participate and have already lined up well-known designer Barry Dixon to join us in our showroom for the evening,” says Rod Lambeth, President & CEO of The Tomlinson Companies, located on the north end of the Hamilton Wrenn Design District.
“With 57 exhibitors already confirmed to participate, Third Night is sure to be a spectacular event,” adds Pam Cain, Director of the Hamilton Wrenn Design District Association. “The streets and courtyards of the Hamilton Wrenn area are perfect for the event. We are excited to celebrate Spring Market with special food, drink, entertainment, and giveaways. Third Night is yet another reason to attend High Point Market.”
Official schedules and programming details for The Point and Third Night will be available in mid-March at the High Point Market website.
