International Market Centers (IMC) has announced that its Spring 2021 High Point Market offerings will include both showrooms and temporary resources as well as a robust line-up of digital tools for pre-market preparation and an all-virtual educational programming format. Spring Market will run June 5 to June 9.
“Spring Market is the perfect platform for retailers and designers to discover trends, source new product and make new connections,” says Bob Maricich, IMC CEO. “A successful High Point Market will play a pivotal role in the continued recovery of the furniture and home décor industries and we’re excited our properties can play a part in that.”
IMC presents more than 1,000 resources throughout its 17 downtown High Point buildings, such as AICO; Bernhardt Furniture; Classic Home; Four Hands; Hudson Valley Lighting; La-Z-Boy; Loloi; Magnussen; Moe’s Home Collection; Uttermost; and Visual Comfort, among many others.
Additionally, IMC will showcase established and emerging brands in three temporary exhibit destinations in the International Home Furnishings Center’s (IHFC) signature InterHall destination, the Suites at Market Square (SAMS), and on the ground floor of Plaza Suites.
IMC’s educational programming will be presented online before market and include IMC’s signature TrendWatch program and the return of its popular Virtual Showhouse as well as a robust slate of pre-market webinars addressing business practices, consumer preferences, and current market trends. A full schedule of virtual programming will be available in the coming weeks at http://www.imchighpointmarket.com/webinars-and-events
