The High Point Market Style Spotters are gearing up for an active Fall Market, October 16-20, with the return of in-person programming and the celebration of the program’s tenth anniversary.

The full team of 2021 Style Spotters will be in High Point to act as the industry’s trend-setting guides, scouring the Market’s buildings and showrooms to highlight the top new styles this fall. They will begin early, spotting 25 favorite products each, then adding their selections to curated digital galleries on the Style Spotters hub page, www.highpointmarket.org/products-and-trends/style-spotters

The High Point Market Authority Keynote Series lineup for Fall Market, October 16-20, 2021, will feature three leading women executives. This season’s educational series seeks to enhance a buyer’s Market experience with timely, relevant and forward-thinking topics.

All sessions will take place at 3:00 P.M. on their scheduled day in the High Point Theatre, conveniently located in the main Transportation Terminal, with doors opening 30 minutes prior to each session. Each will offer 1.0 IDCEC-approved CEU to those who attend.

 

DesignOn HPMKT by IMC – International Market Centers’ (IMC) High Point Market programming and social media channels – offers a 360-degree approach to education with a comprehensive schedule of 25 events and seminars offering 14 CEUS presented before, during and after the October 16-20, 2021 market.

“For the first time in more than a year, DesignOn HPMKT by IMC is presenting live, in-person programming at High Point Market!” said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC executive vice president, chief customer and marketing officer. “We’re using the lessons learned from the pause in our at-market events to improve the experience. Starting with this market, the hybrid programming prepares attendees for market, provides inspiration and networking while they are here and gives them the after-market tools to use when they return to their stores and studios.”

Coinciding with the long-awaited return of real-life design-world events, this hotly anticipated fair brings a select group of dynamic rug companies together from across North America and beyond. Scheduled to take place September 25-27, at The Altman Building, in Manhattan,  the month that the world’s premier buyers traditionally look to source rugs in New York, COVER Connect New York is the first show dedicated to handmade rugs the city has seen for some time!

Fall Design Week featuring Gift & Home is offering three days of curated, educational programming on design, the world of retail and seasonal trends from September 20-22 at IMC’s AmericasMart® Atlanta campus.

“Along with opportunities for order writing and exploring the latest in design trends, Fall Design Week programming enables design aficionados to learn about the direction the industry is moving toward,” said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC chief marketing and digital officer. “We are so excited to welcome the design industry back to AmericasMart this September for sourcing, education and reconnection.”

The High Point Market Authority will host the chart-climbing musical group Fitz and The Tantrums for a concert open to both Market attendees and the Triad community to kick off Fall Market. Rescheduled from spring 2020, the concert will take place on Friday,
October 15, at High Point’s baseball stadium, Truist Point.
