Registration for the June 5-9 High Point Market is now open for home furnishings buyers, international buyers, exhibitors, trade/industry, press, and students at www.highpointmarket.org/register.
Originally scheduled for April, the new spring market dates for June were announced this past December in anticipation of an improving pandemic situation, vaccine availability and fewer travel restrictions, in addition to an improving supply chain situation, which has greatly impacted the industry for the past several months.
“This pandemic has given witness to the resiliency of our industry, and we’re thrilled the resources here in High Point have been a vital lifeline in the effort to keep our industry moving forward,” said Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority. “We look forward to welcoming even more industry members back to market in 2021.”
Spring market also ushers in a return to the typical 5-day schedule, Saturday through Wednesday, for the trade show. The fall 2020 market was expanded this past October to nine days as a safety measure, but that will not be repeated.
With the exception of additional days, the High Point Market Authority anticipates a return of all safety measures that were in place this past fall. The #HPMKTsafe Initiative for spring 2021 includes mandatory face coverings, reduced capacity restrictions, daily health checks and a number of other precautions. More details can be found at www.highpointmarket.org/hpmktsafe.
Online registration will remain open until June 9, but attendees are encouraged to register by May 21 (May 7 for international attendees) so their pass can be mailed in advance. Questions can be directed to (336) 869-1000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
